    This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

    According to the summit’s website “The 19th was founded to shine a light on the unfinished business of the 19th Amendment and empower women — particularly those underserved by and underrepresented in American media — with the information, community and tools they need to be equal participants in our democracy.”

    The website blurb continues: “This August, we commemorate the suffrage centennial with The 19th Represents, presented by Goldman Sachs and Intuit, a week of virtual events that raises the voices of women — past and present — who are reshaping the American story.

    “Join us August 10 to 14 for a series of conversations with prominent women in politics, civic engagement, journalism and the arts.”

    Meghan is expected to speak on matters of race and gender – which is the is the topic of the final day of the event.

    A summary of Meghan’s appearance on the summit’s website reads: “Behind The 19th. Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, asks Emily Ramshaw, The 19th’s Co-Founder and CEO, about creating a transformative newsroom centered on gender equity.”
