Meghan Markle Is 'Inspired' by Students Around World as She Backs Mission to Help Colleges


Meghan Markle tells the young people across the world that they are an “incredible asset” who have a “vision and ambition for positive change.” The Duchess of Sussex says she feels inspired by them, as they often struggle to reach school or university because of physical and social barriers. Embracing one of her new royal roles roles – the ACU, which fosters greater links between students and higher education institutions across the Commonwealth of 53 nations – she has written a supportive open letter to welcome a new strategy. Meghan, 37, who attended Northwestern University, says: “The experience of attending university allows students to graduate into the world with the social skills and intellectual prowess that will set them up for greater success; that happens not simply on a micro level in their own lives, but on a macro level.” “The choices they make and challenges they endeavor to overcome create deep and meaningful global impact,” she adds. Today we brought together university leaders, academics & #students to discuss how we can build a better world through #highered. We were honoured to be joined by HRH The Duchess of Sussex.

And she adds, “I am inspired by the students of today, by their vision and ambition for positive change, and by their understanding of the powerful role higher education can play to create a brighter future. The Commonwealth’s young people are an incredible asset, and it is vital that we invest in them.” Can’t get enough of PEOPLE’s Royals coverage?
