Not that we needed another reason to love Prince Harry, but Meghan Markle just confirmed that her fiancé is also a feminist. On Thursday, Harry and Meghan travelled to Cardiff, Wales for another royal engagement, and as she was greeting the crowd, a fan named Jessica Phillips told Meghan how happy she was to have a feminist in the royal family. "Oh, thank you," Meghan happily replied. "He's [Harry] a feminist, too."
Meghan has been outspoken about women's rights and feminism for years now. Not only has she worked with organisations like One World Vision to shed light on the issues and challenges the women and girls who live in India face, but she also penned an incredibly powerful essay for Elle in November 2016 about why she takes being a public female figure so seriously. Oh, and let's not forget that she protested against a sexist TV commercial with a segment on Nickelodeon's Nick News at just 11 years old! Watch the moment above now — and is it just us, or is Harry's accent rubbing off on Meghan?
