Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met with the UK’s future leaders in Birmingham, England, today! The couple, who just celebrated Meghan’s baptism on Tuesday, visited the city to meet with Stemettes, a group of girls committed to learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skills. The visit fell on International Women’s Day, and while there, Meg even met a girl with dreams of being an actress just like her!
Meghan and Harry were all smiles as they arrived at Millennium Point in Birmingham, where they were greeted by hundreds of fans!
Meghan bundled up in a J. Crew coat, an All Saints wool and cashmere sweater, and Alexander Wang cropped pants. She had no problem getting down on the same level as her tiniest fans — even in stiletto heels!
Harry met one young girl, Sophia Richards, who told the prince she wanted to be an actress just like Meghan some day. Harry took the girl by the hand and brought her over to meet his fiancée!
“Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve. And Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress,” Sophia, who even got a hug from Meghan, told People. “It was a dream come true. I will never forget this day.”
Inside the center, Meghan and Harry met with Stemettes to learn about the work they do to inspire young girls to pursue STEM-focused careers. During today’s trip, 90 girls learned about HTML coding and how to build apps and touchpads.
