Meghan Markle has been under the spotlight for her high-profile relationship with Prince Harry. There have been speculations over what role will she play in the royal house if she marries Harry and she has already been compared to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. However, what many may not know is that she shares a common trait with Harry’s late mother Princess Diana — charity work.
According to a 2016 "Create & Cultivate" conference footage, released Thursday on Entertainment Tonight (ET), Markle spoke about her humanitarian work with the United Nations Women organization and World Vision.
“I think being able to give back and do any sort of humanitarian work will make your life feel a lot more balanced, because you realize where your priorities should be,” Markle said at the October conference in Atlanta.
The 35-year-old travelled to Rwanda last year for a field mission and also to India to work with a women’s program. Diana was also known for her humanitarian work and headed or patronized over 100 charities.
Markle also hinted at her relationship with 32-year-old Harry during the conference while speaking about her experience filming for “Suits” in Canada. She was also seen wearing a bracelet on her left hand similar to the one Harry has been seen sporting.
“I flew in from London; I’m leaving here to fly back to Toronto, because we’re still filming,” she said.
At the time of the conference, Markle and Harry were only speculated to be dating. It was only in early November that their relationship was confirmed by Kensington Palace. Harry is reported to have introduced the actress to Prince William and Middleton.
There have also been reports that Markle is planning to quit “Suits” to spend more time with her boyfriend in London. Although she has not addressed the reports yet, she did, in the past, say that she would not stop working.
“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches. I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works,” she said, according to a November 2016 report by Vogue.
