Meghan Markle has said women do not “need to find their voice”, as she urged the Royals to harness the Time’s Up and Me Too sexual harassment campaigns.

She might not yet be a member of the Royal family, but she has joined Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on stage as they set out their charitable vision for the future.

Using her first official platform to argue the Royals should harness the movements to shine a light on women’s voices, Ms Markle said they “need to feel empowered”.

Lining up with William, Kate and Harry as the trio spoke about their Royal Foundation and how it has developed over the years, Ms Markle said: “Women don’t need to find their voice, they need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.

“Right now with so many campaigns, Me Too and Time’s Up, there is no better time to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that.”
