Meghan’s surprise engagement during the Invictus Games

Meghan Markle visited a non-profit organization supporting non-binary girls and children during her trip to the Netherlands in April, she revealed today.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, who is now based in California with her two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, and husband Prince Harry, was in the Netherlands to support the Duke at the 2022 Invictus Games.

In photographs shared online, a beaming Meghan wore a stylish £2,570 sand-coloured blazer by Chloe as she was captured talking to children at Project Fearless in Amsterdam.

She made an appearance as a guest coach to give “inspiring and encouraging” feedback on the young people’s sustainable business pitches during the group’s entrepreneurship course.

“Today, Project Fearless – a Dutch non-profit organization serving non-binary girls and children in Amsterdam – celebrates its three-year anniversary by looking back on its major milestones, from launching a major documentary to visiting the Duchess Meghan,” Finding Freedom co-author Omid Scobie wrote on Twitter.

For her outing, the mother-of-two wore a work-ready silk blazer with pockets and rolled up sleeves, which she teamed with a black top and matching trousers.

Adding a touch of glitz to her ensemble, Meghan paired her cream blazer with a dazzling ‘Juste un Clou’ Cartier necklace – which costs £13,100.

The Duchess kept her hair down and added a touch of glamorous makeup to her features for the surprise engagement.

On its website, Project Fearless said it creates “an uplifting and supportive atmosphere, giving children a space to play without the pressure of perfection, learning to celebrate each other’s downfalls and wins, while strengthening their own resilience and self-confidence, experimenting with varied leadership styles from accessible models and discovering who they are on their own terms”.

He added that the group “bridges gender gaps in Amsterdam and beyond with our unique programs for girls and non-binary youth, empowering the generations of today and tomorrow.”

Meghan was in the Netherlands in April to appear alongside Prince Harry at his 2022 Invictus Games, with the couple appearing together at a number of events while attending the international multi-sport event.

The games, founded by the Duke, were first held in 2014, for wounded, injured and ill service members, whether serving or veterans.

Meghan’s visit to the entrepreneurship course was announced by the nonprofit today. The Duchess said of her visit: “Safe and supportive spaces like Project Fearless empower girls to express themselves, build themselves, build resilience and take on new challenges.”

“The Duchess’ visit was a great way to celebrate the impact Project Fearless has had over the past three years, showcasing the truly accessible girl role models who are making a difference and using their voices,” said the founder of Project Fearless, Merida Miller.

One of the youngsters who met Meghan, 12-year-old Meesha, added: “I can’t believe she shared her fears with me. For the rest of my life, if ever I scared or if someone makes me feel small, I’m going to think ‘Never mind, you get it. Meghan said it!”

Upon hearing about 15-year-old Myrtle’s goal of becoming a teen mentor for Project Fearless, the Duchess encouraged her and shared her experience mentoring young children as teenagers.

Myrtle said, “I learned how important it is to be true to who you are and to have faith in that. Be fearless and teach it to others as well.

Meghan has long been an advocate for women’s rights. In 2015, she became a United Nations Advocate for Women’s Political Participation and Leadership.

In April 2021, the Duchess hosted a roundtable with members of Girls Inc. and the National Women’s Law Center.

Meanwhile, this year for Women’s History Month, Meghan and Harry have awarded grants through their Archewell Foundation to four organizations trying to advance gender equality.
