'A dream come true': Meghan's advice for aspiring actress

  • Meghan Markle

During a walkabout before their royal duties, Harry - sporting a camel sweater, navy slacks and a matching overcoat - met an Oasis Academy school student, Sophia Richards, 10, who told him she wanted to be an actress when she grew up.

"Meghan said that she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress", Sophia said.

Richards told People, "Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve".

With Prince Harry in a fawn coloured cashmere jumper and navy pants, the pair, who are set to marry on May 19, looked subtly synchronised without being too matchy-matchy, and their relaxed outfits felt appropriate for an event meant to encourage young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.

The crowds were smaller than Cardiff and Edinburgh, but clearly people are curious about Ms Markle, as the royal PR machine refers to her. Richards called the conversation "a dream come true". "I will never forget this day". "You're using your brain in a really challenging way".

Meghan was speaking to Tasneem Chihani, 14, who picked Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, the founder of the social enterprise "Stemettes", as her inspiring woman.

"The one who dares to fly in the face of all these stereotypes is the best kind of role model a young female can have". Harry reportedly told the teenagers: "You must have brains the size of a planet".

Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement, they've been thrust into the public limelight and all eyes are on them for every single appearance.

Now that the royal couple's upcoming nuptials are just 10 weeks away, Markle appears to be quite busy with wedding festivities.
