According to the BBC, Meghan Markle has been called "a great champion and ambassador for women" as she attended the Commonwealth Youth Forum alongside Prince Harry.

Set to be married in Windsor on the 19th May, the couple met around 40 youth leaders as a part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London.

A girl from Mauritius, Karuna Rana, said to Ms Markle that she'd begin her own women's rights campaign.

Ms Markle was apparently "hugely excited" to join Harry in his regal duties.

The former actress was asked by Ms Rana to begin what would be the equivalent of the UN's HeForShe campaign, which focuses on encouraging both boys and men in the fight towards attaining gender equality.

Ms Rana stated "I said she was a great champion and ambassador for women and that she should start a SheForShe campaign," 

"She said she'd think about it - right after May 20th."

The Queen has appointed Prince Harry a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by the Queen, though it is unusual for someone that hasn't yet been married into the Royal Family to be permitted into such an important and high-profile summit like CHOGM.

Alluding to the Commonwealth, Meghan said to a few of the youth delegates:

"You have this umbrella to hold you together.

"It's incredible. Stay in touch - maximise it."
