Harry and Meghan in conversation with Malala Yousefzai

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recorded a conversation with Malala Yousafzai highlighting the issues girls still face accessing education.

The conversation marks International Day of the Girl, which is on Sunday, 11 October.

A source close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said the couple spoke to Yousafzai about how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting how women and girls access education.

They also spoke about how the global situation has disproportionately affected women and how everyone can contribute to a more equal future for women and girls.

According to the Malala Fund, there were 129 million girls globally not going to school before the pandemic even began, and their calculations indicate that number is set to rise by a further 20 million secondary-school aged girlsĀ even when the situation improves.
