Meghan Markle served as a guest coach at a girls’ entrepreneurship course during her April trip to Amsterdam.
The Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to Project Fearless, a Dutch non-profit organization dedicated to empowering and equipping young women with the skills they need to succeed in all aspects of their lives. Mérida Miller founded the organization with the goal of redefining what it means to be a girl in today’s world.
Meghan was seen getting down to business during her coaching session in photos released by Project Fearless on Monday. The Duchess was photographed sitting in an intimate circle with the girls around her in one photo. Meghan was also seen writing enthusiastically on a whiteboard in another photo.
The photos were shared to commemorate the initiative’s third birthday. “Today is the day!” Project Fearless wrote on the social media platform. Project Fearless has turned three years old!
Meghan gave the girls “inspiring and encouraging feedback on their sustainable business pitches,” according to the Dutch organization, which recognized their milestone achievements.
“Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless allow girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience, and tackle new challenges,” Meghan said in a statement released by Archewell.
“The duchess’ visit was a brilliant way to celebrate the impact Project Fearless has made over the last three years, introducing the girls to an accessible role model who is making a difference and using her voice,” said Mérida Miller, founder of Project Fearless.
The news comes after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry visited the Netherlands in April to promote Prince Harry’s Invictus Games in 2022.
The Games were established by Prince Harry in 2014 to encourage recovery and support rehabilitation for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women.
“These Games have shone a spotlight on the ‘unconquerable’ character of servicemen and women, their families, and the ‘Invictus’ spirit,” Prince Harry said of his brainchild. Guys sprinting for the finish line and then turning around to clap the last man in has been the theme of these Games… These Games have exemplified the best qualities of the human spirit.”
