About The Duchess of Sussex

The Duchess of Sussex, born Meghan Markle, married Prince Harry at St George's Chapel, Windsor in May 2018. The couple's official residence is Kensington Palace. As well as undertaking royal duties in support of The Queen, both in the UK and overseas, The Duchess devotes her time to supporting a number of charities and organisations.

From a young age, The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work. Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid. Her Royal Highness also volunteered at a soup kitchen in Skid Row, Los Angeles from the age of 13-17. She continued to volunteer at the soup kitchen when she would return home to Los Angeles until the age of 22.

The BBC reporter mentioned at the end of the broadcast that several official trips abroad are planned for this year. One of them will be to The Netherlands.

Excellent news and great experience for Meghan. I look forward to hearing more about it and other trips planned in coming months.

I am surprised as I thought they will focus on commonwealth countries and trips to non-commonwealth countries won't happen that soon. But I am very looking forward to that.

Can I see it as a sign that they will take over/share Wessexes' role and attend foreign royal events in future? simply a wild guess.

They will be visiting Auz for Invictus Games 2018 and its said they will visit New Zealand and Fiji on the way there/back turning it into a Commonwealth tour. A Dublin and/or Netherlands tour would only be a day or two, Kate did her visit to Netherlands in hours.

Has anything actually been confirmed by KP? I've seen reports of a Netherlands/Nordic trip and a big tour this fall (Oz, NZ etc etc).

I fear I forgot all the other countries the BBC reporter mentioned but there were quite a few. She did not mention any dates. It was towards the end of the live broadcast, after they left the chapel IIRC. I can't find the entire BBC report online as they cut it up in xx pieces.

A detail but i'm surprised that her divorce is not mentioned. Not a big deal if you ask me but , for exemple, it's the case for the Duchess of Cornwall.

I think it’s the same logic as her wedding. With Camilla, there was no way of avoiding it and it was significant given her kids and the situation caused them not to be married in the Church. In Meghan’s case, it’s insignificant and treated as a nonissue in terms of getting married in church and wearing white (meghan’s Dress really couldn’t be any whiter).

Likely because of the obvious difference: kids.

Camilla's previous marriage is mentioned, because her kids are. Andrew is only mentioned briefly. The inclusion is just to include her children and grandkids.

Since Meghan and Trevor had no children, really no reason to include him.

How many countries? I can’t imagine it being THAT much more. There is already an Australian trip for IG at the minimum. There has been rumors about extending that. I’d be surprised if they don’t visit Canada next year though. I’ve heard some hopes from Canadians that they’d visit soon bc the bride lived there for so long.

Exactly. And while Camilla was Mrs. Parker Bowles when she married Charles, Meghan was Ms. Markle (not Mrs. Engelson) when she married Harry.

Another detail: her previous wedding had been only performed civilly, and the Church doesn't acknowledges it.

Beautiful site for Meghan and it says a great deal about the young girl learning about social responsibility and the strong intelligent woman she became today. I think she will be a perfect match for the BRF and most of all she and Harry share a deep love between them and that will provide the basis for their commitment to doing great things in the future.

I can't wait for their first official visit to Meghan's homeland! It'll be so exciting.

The discussion about the wedding coverage and ratings have been moved to the 'Wedding of Harry and Meghan' thread.
