Meghan Markle is not a royal as yet but her attendance at two key Commonwealth meetings is an indication of her future role
The ex-actress is set to attend a very important summit with her future hubby. Her involvement in royal events shows how warmly she has been welcomed by the family.
Meghan Markle is preparing to take on a very important role once she is married to Prince Harry. The bride-to-be is going to have a packed schedule this coming week. As a future royal, Meghan is set to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting which takes place in London, says a report in Vanity Fair.
The Commonwealth Heads of Government is a summit of 53 leaders. Since it is such a high-profile meeting, Meghan's attendance does raise a few eyebrows. But what the move does say a lot about is the role that Meghan will have as a member of the royal family.
Meghan is said to be attending the event with her hubby-to-be Prince Harry. They're also slated to appear at a Women's Empowerment reception on Thursday that enables organizations and charities that strive to promote gender equality through education. The cause is something Meghan has been passionate about.
Her close involvement with the C.H.O.G.M. has made people in the royal circles take note of her future role. A former royal courtier recently told Vanity Fair that Meghan's involvement in royal events just proves how warmly she has been welcomed into the family. "Clearly the feeling is that she is equipped and ready for the job even before the ring is on her finger,” the courtier said “This is quite unusual. C.H.O.G.M. is a very important official meeting. It’s quite something for Meghan to be involved.”
Meghan's involvement with the Commonwealth Heads of Government follows news from Kensington Palace announcing that Prince Harry has been appointed as the president of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust. The aim of the trust is to provide a platform for young achievers and change-makers across the Commonwealth. The trust targets health, education, sports and the environment.
Meghan has had an easy time assimilating with the royals. Just last month, the ex-Suits actress joined the Queen and other royals for the yearly Commonwealth Day service. The matriarch of Britain is said to be impressed with Meghan and her work ethic. Now it's just full steam ahead for the royal wedding!
