Meghan Markle & Pippa Middleton Totally Hung Out Last Night

It was back to school for Meghan Markle!

During the event, which was sponsored by the Association of Commonwealth University (ACU), Markle engaged with professors, scholarship students and leaders in conversations surrounding a number of things Markle is passionate about, like gender equality, ending modern slavery, solutions to human trafficking, peace and reconciliation and climate change. The Duchess of Sussex made an announced solo visit to the King's College London on Wednesday, December 5.

The mom-to-be publicly debuted the navy coat on her first official royal outing in Nottingham. Meghan was photographed sitting during the discussions, taking notes.

Meghan's husband Prince Harry is historically close with former President Barack Obama, hanging out with him and Joe Biden at the 2017 Invictus Games and interviewing him for a BBC radio story that broadcast later that year, with Obama joking that he was a fan of Suits, the drama that famously starred Meghan during her acting days. The Duchess has previously highlighted the importance of education.

Meghan spoke at the time of her struggle to finance her higher education and her "personal feeling of pride and excitement" when she studied for her degree. From the moment you receive your acceptance letter, to the exams you spend countless late nights studying for, the lifelong friendships you make with your fellow alumni, and the moment you receive your diploma. Providing them with access to education is the key to economic and social development. "They also talked about shared experiences of pregnancy and raising children, plus shared causes including girls' education".

Meghan showed off her baby bump in a navy blue dress, while the Duke of Sussex wore the same color coat and trousers. The ceremony was hosted by the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, a charity honoring Prince Harry and Prince William's late friend.
