Meghan admits she ‘didn’t know’ about Commonwealth until she joined Royal Family

Meghan Markle has admitted she "didn’t know" anything about the Commonwealth until she joined the Royal Family then gushed that it was an "honour" to be continuing the Queen’s legacy.

The former Suits star, 39, made the comment during a video call with young leaders from Her Majesty’s Commonwealth Trust.

She was joined by Prince Harry, 35, from their new multi-mansion in Santa Barbara, California, on Monday, with the meeting being shared on YouTube yesterday.

Both Meghan and Prince Harry spoke about the Queen, 94, with great affection and referred to her as "grandmother" during the video call.

During the call, the couple gushed about the Commonwealth with Meghan claiming to feel "incredible pride" at being able to work with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT).

She added: "Young people from across the Commonwealth come with a question, they always offered a solution, and that’s what I think is so inspiring and why I’m incredibly proud to be able to work with the QCT."

It comes after the couple appeared to criticise the history of the British Empire by saying the history of the Commonwealth "must be acknowledged", even if it was "uncomfortable".

The Duchess continued to speak about the impact of social media and said: "When you look at what these platforms are capable of with that reach and what that propels in terms of trolling…You can either train people to be cruel, or you can train people to be kind.

"It’s really that simple."

Prince Harry then chipped in: "How can you shut down hate without sharing it, without feeling it?"

He then echoed his wife’s sentiments and said it was vital to not just "come to the table with a problem without a solution".

Meanwhile, it has emerged Prince Harry might have to cut his US stay short.

Despite living in LA since the beginning of the Covid pandemic the original intention was to split their time between London and North American – now it looks likely Harry may have to return sooner than anticipated.

Royal expert Angela Levin appeared on talkRADIO, claiming although Meghan is unlikely to return to Britain full time due to frictions within the Royal Family Prince Harry may well return for his family's sake.

But more pressingly she told host Mike Graham Prince Harry may well be forced to return to the UK to sort out some VISA issues because he still technically a Brit abroad.
