It is very rare to be mentioned. On Twitter, royalty specialist Omid Scobie shared a video of just under a minute in which we can see and hear a conversation between Meghan Markle and American journalist and feminist Gloria Steinem. It was in the garden of the very large Sussex property that the meeting between the two women took place. If they got together, it was to discuss the influence of the women’s empowerment movement and the importance of voting in the presidential elections which will take place in a few weeks. This video will then serve the MAKERS Women movement, which is a platform accelerating the women’s movement through stories of real life experiences.
This is not the first time that the mother of little Archie has spoken out to encourage women to vote well in the next elections. This time, she was able to count on the support of Gloria Steinem. “People forget how much women like you and so many others before you fought to get us to where we are right now,” Meghan Markle told the journalist who was only able to acquire adding: “If you don’t vote, you don’t exist”.
