The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have expressed their concerns about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on girls’ education with activist Malala Yousafzai.
Harry and Meghan’s video chat with the renowned 23-year-old education campaigner was released on Sunday to mark the International Day Of The Girl.
The trio spoke about how the Covid-19 outbreak has impacted young women’s access to education and the importance of learning.
Meghan and I are on the same page: we both believe that when girls have access to education, everyone wins. Thank you so much to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for sitting down with me to have an important conversation about the future of our world. ♥️ https://t.co/QETaZG8Vsn pic.twitter.com/bfnbt4pCEb
