Meghan Markle urges schoolkids to ‘stand up for your rights’ in first speech since Megxit – The Sun

THE Duchess of Sussex delivered her first speech since Megxit — and urged an audience of schoolkids to “stand up for your rights”.

In a clear signal to the Palace, Meghan, 38, told the pupils to fight for what they believe in — an echo of her battle to quit the Royal Family.

She was given a standing ovation for her talk, which marked International Women’s Day.

Meghan told them during a visit to their school on Friday: “No matter how small you might feel, no matter what colour you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.”

She added: “I encourage and empower each of you to really stand in your truth, to stand for what is right.”

Meghan also urged the boys at Robert Clack School in Dagenham, East London, to “value, appreciate and protect” the women in their lives.

They were also asked to set a good example for “some men who are not seeing it the same way”.

Meghan and Harry, 35, are on their final round of engagements before quitting royal life with ten-month-old Archie.

Expert Phil Dampier, who wrote a book on Harry and Meghan, said: “This is a clear signal that she felt she was standing up for herself when she quit the Royal Family.”
