The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke with the activist Malala Yousafzai to mark International Day Of The Girl 2020. The Duke and Duchess discussed Covid’s devastating impact on girls’ education in a videochat with Malala Yousafzai. In 2011 the United Nations declared Oct. 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to promote girls’ rights and address the challenges girls face around the world.

The video chat covers how the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on young women’s access to education. Research by the Malala Fund has suggested that 20 million secondary-school aged girls may never return to the classroom after the health crisis is over. Co-founded by student and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, Malala Fund works to create a world where all girls can learn and lead.

  1. Makeup too heavy and foundation does not match her skin tone ...
    And it seems she's very fidgety and can't stay still for the call.
    Malala is very professional, to the point and doing a good job of redirecting the conversation. Lots of admiration for malala.

    1. No redirecting here, I find the whole conversation within the realms of these type of meetings. If only some of the public people ( including royals) could express themselves like Meghan.... whether you like her or not, she is informed cultured and incredibly eloquent, and that is regardless of whether one is in agreement or not with her positions. Harry in the other hand doesn’t express himself very well, he is endearing and sounds sincere, but not even his posh British accent can make him a good speaker.
      I actually like her makeup and hair very much, she looks exotic and very attractive.

  4. I enjoyed this pleasant conversation about girl´s education. Meghan is thinking deep within the belongings of our global society, which seem to affect only women. But that is not the case. A lot of people (man and women), treat others as they owe them something. Parents for example think their child owes them something or men think their wife owes them something or an employer thinks ..

    1. Anon. at 2.39 AM (why don´t you have a name, nick-name...?) Would you mind to tell us your age, because it is quite interesting what you are saying. And yes, I think we do owe something to people who treat us well, parents, grand-parents, neighbours, kids, nurses...
      It is not about "me, me, me"...

    2. Hi Anonymous thank you for your insight on what you took away from the conversation. I have to say I agree with you. Relationships shouldn't be transactional and no one is entitled to anyone's affections, attention, or time. We need to earn trust, love, affections, etc. I have had to make far too many CPS cases to know that children do not owe their parents anything. They did not ask to be brought in the world whereas for most parents, the decision to have kids was a conscious one. I wish everyone treated each other well all the time but sometimes that is not the case. For self-preservation and to stop enabling the perpetrator's behavior sometimes it's best to walk away.

      On a fashion related note, I have to agree that the make-up look is a little heavy handed. I do like the look. It's dramatic, sleek, and the Duchess' skin is glowing. I just think it would suit a evening look better though. Great turtleneck. I'm just perplexed as to why she paired it with a brown belt. Imo, a black belt would have gone better. With the white pants it would have been very mod à la Audrey Hepburn.

    3. Dear Rainhar, the only people who we owe loyalty,are the people who never made me question theirs. The thing is, that it is quite presumptuous to say who owes somebody something.
      You can not look insight ones heart. There are mothers, fathers who really love their children or two of them. There are employers who treat the most workers well or teachers who... but we all know that nobody is perfect.

  5. I like the individual pieces. The outfit seems to be true to Meghan's style but hair and make-up aren't my favorite. In the second photo, Meghan's profile looks gorgeous but straight on the hair style looks severe and the make-up heavy. I think Meghan looks better with a more relaxed updo and lighter make-up. She has great skin and I like it when her make-up is a little more fresh faced and you can see her freckles. Harry looks good. A crisp white button-down should be a closet staple for everyone.

    E.B.B.

  7. Malala's Nobel was well deserved. She is a remarkable young woman. She is very polished in her interactions with Harry and Meghan, and it is obvious that she is passionate and she has been doing this for quite a while. Girls education around the world and the challenges they face and will continue to face is indeed something that so many of us don't know about or think about because of the privileges we have become so accustomed to. Partnering with Harry and Meghan seems a natural fit.

    The combination of black body suit and cream trousers on Meghan is very chic. I like the prominent lip, and her skin is glowing. Harry looks a little sun kissed, which makes the white shirt look better on him. He is looking very sharp here.

    I see that the hateful comments have already started. Why pick apart a video about something so important?

  8. So sad that they appear on everything that will give them exposure, but still do not have a clear platform of their own. Women rights, girl rights, election, nature, mental health, environment, racial issues, on and on. Please stop riding coat tails and come up with your own agenda!

    3. i agree. they have to get their face on every 'woke' topic. my main complaint however is that they dont practice what they preach

      Delete
    4. Absolute focus on specific areas is in the style of the royal contruct. Being put in a box of tradition. This is precisely what they did not want. Indeed Paula, their agenda is whatever they want it to be, when they want it to be so, however they wish to do it.

      But in all fairness, Meghan has always been for women and girl's rights, Harry for nature, the environment and mental health. The election only comes around every few years so everyone is talking about that. Which, from your list, leaves racial issues. How DARE they tackle race issues when Meghan is a woman of color and there are many issues to resolve!

      Anywho, she looks great overall. Very sleek and she would never have done this as a full time royal. Such freedom in her styles now. However, I am never a fan of that lipstick effect. Far too much, but she's working it with confidence so good for her even though I'm not a fan.

    5. Thank you Anonymous 4:05 PM.

      P.s. "woke" is only seen/used as an insult by people who don't care for the equality and rights of others different than them. I don't see it as an insult at all. I wished we could all practice being empathetic to the plight of others.

  10. I love this style, a sleveless turtleneck bodysuit is always so elegant, It suits Meghan well and I think it looks even better with the white pants paired with a brown belt than with the pleated skirt as seen before. I agree with others her hairstyle looks a bit severe, but with a turtleneck I think an updo or ponytail is best, long hair would cover too much and distract from the neck and shoulder details. Make-up looks too heavy, but I must say it is not easy to find the right make-up for these video-conferences. You never know how the light turns out. If it goes on with home-office and Zoom meetings we may need special make-up tutorials for that :-)

  11. I like this simple outfit and sleek hairstyle. The make up is a little heavy for my personal taste but I think she looks good.

  12. Well this video is not very interesting in terms of fashion. But the subject is very very important, education for esp. girls. We all have to support that. It'll give them a good and independant future. And if Harry and Meghan can give this subject an international boost let's be happy about that and stop unimportant speculations

  13. I vote that we totally ignore Hannelores comments and any similar nasty persons from now on and do not react. Obviously it will aggravate her
    driving desire to hate regardless but walking away from it is the best remedy.

    SO my comment on the fashion part.
    I think she looks lovely but I also think the make up a bit heavy for day time casual. She is good looking she does not need it.
    I love her top , belt and trouser combination (I even like the belt brown unusual) BUT I begin to itch just looking at her. I love cashmere but I can not imagine how she is wearing it tightly belted next to her skin and not itching like mad. I own several cashmere garments which I love but however soft they are they do itch if not worn over a very thin undergarment of cotton or silk of some sort.

    1. Yes Nalerina. I feel like we should move towards that as well. The posts about the Duchess of Sussex are constantly barraged with non-fashion or cause related comments. Typically they are just personal attacks on a woman who people never met.

      I remembered the people coming to the Duchess of Cambridge's defense when I dared make a sincere comment towards her look for the recent State Audience. Where is the outrage for these demeaning comments towards the Duchess of Sussex? I wonder what it could be...

      Btw, I do not bring the Duchess of Cambridge up to compare the two. I am comparing people's TREATMENT of the two duchesses.

      I like the black and cream combination as well as the introduction of brown, I know that in the past this wasn't a common practice but fashion is such an evolving world, it works for me. I like her red lip as well, she looks rather sophisticated.

  14. I am done with this site. Where are the comments about fashion? And come to think of it what gives people the right to even judge and comment on what other people are wearing. An opinion perhaps or a like or dislike. But some of the comments are cruel. I used to enjoy this site. Not anymore.
    Some of you should be ashamed. Be careful with your words. They can hurt and are remembered.

  16. Anonymous @ 4:46, you actually enumerated all the subjects of their platform, supporting social issues is what they are doing. So do you think that they should be doing only one thing, and pick just one subject? Is that what people do?
    I do understand that some people don’t agree with their interests, but many others do. What I have noticed is that most criticism comes for a deep dislike for this woman, and yes it keeps happening even the 21st century, after all she is a female, bi-racial, educated and oh my Lord! she seems to be a “liberal” . I don’t read any of these attacks when the other Royals do exactly the same... I wonder why.
    BTW, women’s rights, girl rights, mental health, inequity , environment ( which unfortunately affects poor people more) fall under human rights , which looks to me like a good platform.

      @Daniela
      I do agree with you about " the tribune" and the" salvation complex".
      Moreover, I have never seen anything of this kind, namely making trials to people only because they honestly say what they think.
      The obsession with " hateful comments" is absurd.
      I am impressed by the way a commenter is being pur under trial by reporting a list of the comments she made in quite a long period.
      The "activists" only want Meghan to speak freely, but they tear to pieces others' freedom of speech.
      Just paradoxical.
      No words.

    Just to let you know something about the way I speak German.
    I studied it at University together with English and made a number of trips to Germany and Austria as well.
    I do not need any Google translator, you see.

    2. Actually, if they would be so needy in regards to attention they would stayed in their roles, they were the most sought out people in the world, and also the most trolled and attacked. Now they can choose when and how they appear, of course it still provides a window of opportunity for those that wish to complain about then, but smaller I think...

    3. Oh please, these two are tone deaf and attention seekers. Remember that african tour? Whining about their "struggle" against a background of real struggling people. If it wasn't for their royal connection no one would sign a deal or endorsement.
