Prince Harry and Meghan will be seen discussing education for girls with Malala Yousafzai on October 11 to mark 2020’s International Day of the Girl. The video of their chat will be released on Malala Fund's social media platforms and YouTube channel. According to Vanity Fair, the topic of discussion between the couple and the 23-year-old activist will be "the barriers preventing 130 million girls from going to school and why it's essential that we champion every girl's right to learn".

The virtual meeting will see the trio talking about how the global health crisis has had a devastating impact on education for girls. According to a study by the Malala Fund, before the Covid-19 pandemic, 129 million girls across the world were out of school and now approximately 20 million more secondary-age girls may never return to class once schools reopen after the pandemic tides over.

Malala was just 15 when she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for campaigning for girls education in her native Pakistan. After the incident, she went on to become one of the prominent voices for girls' education. In 2014, she also was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize which made her the youngest ever to receive the prestigious award. Eventually, Malala completed her graduation from Oxford University with a degree in philosophy, politics and economics.

On the other hand, Meghan has also been an advocate for women's rights and education. After exchanging vows with Harry, the former actress selected the Association of Commonwealth Universities as one of her first patronages. Besides, during her first royal tour, the 39-year-old chose education as the topic for her speech, which she delivered at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji.

"Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly the education they have the right to receive. And for women and girls in developing countries, this is vital. When girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures, not only for themselves but for all of those around them," Meghan told the audience in October 2018.

A number of people on the internet have reacted to the news of the trio coming together for a cause, though not in a positive way. One user tweeted, "#Malala most overhyped person on this planet." Another said, "Three crooks don't make a straight." A user said of the Sussexes: "The more they insert themselves in REAL causes the more disgusted I become. They r 2 selfish people whose goal in life is financial independence. There is no feeling of empathy in their motives just manipulation. Does SS Promise $$ for the cause in exchange 4 their involvement."



 

 



 

 



 

"Is it just me or does anyone else think that Meghan decided to team up with Malala because Prince William teamed up with Sir David? Also has Meghan ever spoken before on the #InternationalDayoftheGirl?" pointed out a user. "Poor Malala being subjected to their woke salad bullsh*t. Just hope she went and took a long hot shower after being put through that memememeghan Im so important crap..," added another social media user.
