Meghan Markle Wears J.Crew Coat With Prince Harry in Birmingham

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have kicked off International Women’s Day together with their seventh royal engagement, a visit to Birmingham, England. Markle, who stepped out in J.Crew’s sold-out tipped topcoat, was the most excited. “It’s International Women’s Day. It’s perfect,” Markle was heard telling a fan during the couple’s walkabout.

Markle spoke at her last engagement, the Royal Foundation Forum, about how she wants to make women’s rights the focus of her activist work.

“I hear a lot of people speaking about girls’ empowerment and women’s’ empowerment,” Markle started. “You’ll often hear people say well, you’re helping women find their voices. And I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find their voices, they have a voice. They need to be empowered to use it, and people need to be encouraged to listen. And I think right now in the climate that we’re seeing so many campaigns—I mean, #MeToo and TimesUp—there’s no better time than [now] to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them…It [the spotlight] makes such a tremendous difference.”
