AN OFFICIAL royal profile of Meghan Markle has been added to the British monarchy’s website.

The web page details the new royal’s philanthropic past, a brief description of her new role and her interest in social justice.

“From a young age, The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work. Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid,” the web page says.

“I am proud to be a woman and a feminist” – a quote from a speech she made in 2015 at the United Nations conference in New York is highlighted on the page.

The profile also lists some of Meghan’s charitable work.

“The Duchess witnessed the work of the Myna Mahila Foundation who empower women through access to menstrual hygiene products and employment opportunities.”

The palace website confirms Prince Harry and Meghan’s official residence as Kensington Palace.

Breaking from tradition
Markle broke from tradition and gave a speech at the reception of her wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday.

The 36-year-old, who has been given the title Duchess of Sussex, is believed to have thanked the royal family for welcoming her into the family.

According to The Sun, she said: “I have found my Prince” and took the opportunity to thank friends for their support during the lead up to the wedding.

The former actress is also believed to have specially thanked Prince Charles who walked her part way down the aisle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Harry also spoke at the reception and is reported to have said that Meghan “navigated everything with such grace”.

The Duchess’s new father-in-law, Prince Charles, hosted the couple’s evening celebrations, to which around 200 guests were invited.

The newlyweds were watched by millions across the globe as they tied the knot at the weekend.
