"Thanks to HRH Duchess of Sussex for joining us!"
As Meghan has come under fire for her lavish wardrobe choices, it could be fairly argued that her sister-in-law has been strategically recycling almost every outfit in recent weeks, not only positioning herself as the more thrifty royal, but also ensuring the wow factor when she debuts something new, as she did last night. Meghan was photographed sitting during the discussions, taking notes.
During the event, Markle and guests discussed human trafficking and modern slavery, gender equality and inclusion, peace and reconciliation, and climate change and resilience, according to the ACU's website. The Duchess had previously made a powerful speech about education during her first royal tour to students at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji in October.
Her reading was about the importance of "letting our own light shine" containing the lines: "There's nothing enlightened about shrinking / So that other people won't feel insecure around you".
"As a university graduate, I know the personal feeling of pride and excitement that comes with attending university".
Meghan noted, "Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly the education they have the right to receive". The pair continued to chat about their charitable endeavours with a focus on educational programmes for women in less economically developed countries.
A woman, believed to be a protection officer, entered the pub first to ask bar staff if a little girl could use the bathroom.
Meghan showed off her baby bump in a navy blue dress, while the Duke of Sussex wore the same color coat and trousers.
The Duchess' unannounced outing came the day after she and Harry attended a charity carol service that was held in support of the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund.
