Markle's comments championing a future generation of feminists future generation of feminists followed up Friday morning's Kensington Palace announcement that the Queen named Markle Vice President of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust (QCT).

Meghan Markle is losing her trusted aide Amy Pickerill.

Despite earlier reports that some key staff had given up their role working with Markle, according to the Daily Telegraph Pickerill is leaving her on good terms. The aide helped Meghan with various projects, including the cookbook the Duchess published to help families affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Likewise, Samantha Cohen is also leaving her post in the royal household, after nearly 20 years of service.

In another first for the royal family, however, the Duchess of Sussex last week spoke out about "period poverty", referring to girls in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world who are forced to miss school because they can not afford to buy sanitary products.

Meghan also bid farewell to her PA Melissa Touabti who quit after just six months in the job and Meghan's bodyguard also quit in January.

Meghan and Amy are reportedly quite close and will keep in touch. She put up with quite a lot.

The reason is that the Duchess never checks Twitter, nor does she read any headlines about her!

Meghan Markle's newest role has been announced. Back in 2014, when she was a mere famous actress, she gave a city guide to My Domaine where she mentioned being a fan of the drinks at Cocktail Bar, recommended visiting Americans try poutine (obviously), and said she was a fan of the eclectic Kensington Market neighbourhood.

The 37-year-old also opened up about her hopes for her baby, saying she felt "the embryonic kicking of feminism".

There's been huge chatter that Meghan has become a diva after marrying Harry.

Although online abuse isn't new to the royal couple-Prince Harry released a statement in 2016 condemning "the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls" towards his then-girlfriend-there is a separate, insidious nature to recent attacks.
