Duchess Meghan Markle Makes Inspiring Speech To Students For International Women's Day 2020

Meghan Markle is greeted by a ton of school children while arriving at the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham on Friday (March 6) in London, England.

The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex attended the school’s special assembly in honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), where she gave an inspiring speech to the students.

“Your school mantra, as you all know, is ‘Excellence for All, Excellence from All,’” Meghan began. “So, how does that apply in your minds to International Women’s Day? I think in many ways, it’s very much the same thing: this idea of excellence for all and from all, equality for all and from all.”

“In many societies, it doesn’t matter where you are, it’s very easy to sometimes compartmentalize or silo this idea of International Women’s Day solely being about women. But it’s not; it’s about all of us.”

She continued, “I encourage and empower each of you to really stand in your truth, to stand for what is right—to continue to respect each other…. Let’s all rally together to make International Women’s Day something that is not just on Sunday, but frankly, feels like every day of the year.”

During her visit, Meghan was seen was gifted a jacket from the ‘Senior Debate Squad’, and posed with the 700 students holding their forearms parallel for the Each for Equal Campaign (#eachforequal) to signify the International Women’s Day symbol for equality.

Later in the night, Meghan joined husband Prince Harry for the Mountbatten Music Festival in matching red looks.
