The Duchess of Sussex joined the Vancouver-based group Justice for Girls to discuss climate change and other progressive causes, the group announced on Wednesday.
“The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle visited to discuss climate justice for girls and the rights of Indigenous peoples,” the group wrote on Twitter.
“Was great to talk about the importance of a holistic approach to social justice, and the power of young womens leadership.”
Justice for Girls said the Markle’s visit took place Tuesday, the same day she had tea at a womens center in a down-trodden neighborhood in Vancouver.
The Downtown Eastside Womens Centre posted a Facebook photo of their staff posing with the duchess after Markles visit.
Look who we had tea with today! they wrote. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community.
The visits mark the Duchess’ first public appearances since she and her husband Prince Harry announced in a surprise Instagram post that they intended to step back form their senior roles in the Royal Family.
