The Duchess’ speech about gender equality comes on the same day as it was revealed that Liz Truss would be replacing Boris Johnson as the U.K.’s new prime minister.
Meghan Markle is giving a speech about gender inequality in the UK today. It takes a special kind of stupid to claim women are being held back on the SAME DAY they named a Female Prime Minister.

This isn’t the first time Meghan has attended a One Young World summit, with her previously making an appearance in 2014 and 2016 as a counselor and attending the 2019 event with Harry.
Meghan and Harry’s return to the U.K. comes after they attended the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
During their latest trip, the Sussexes will also make a brief stop in Germany to attend the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, before returning to London for the WellChild Awards on September 8.
A spokesperson for the couple previously confirmed they were “delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.”
