Queen Elizabeth has given Meghan Markle a new role on International Women’s Day.

The British monarch has appointed the Duchess of Sussex as Vice-President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

Meghan’s new role will see her supporting young people, especially women and girls, throughout the Commonwealth.

Announcing the new appointment, The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust tweeted, “We are delighted to announce that as of today The Duchess of Sussex will take on the role of Vice-President for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. Please join us is welcoming Her Royal Highness to #TeamQCT.”

The CEO of the trust, Nicola Brentnall, released a statement which said: “We are particularly delighted that the first opportunity of formally working together with Her Royal Highness comes on International Women’s Day.”

“This squares perfectly with our focus on amplifying the work and contribution of those furthest away from power. Women across the Commonwealth and the globe often face the biggest impediments to success.”

“So we are delighted to have our Vice-President’s support in helping others to overcome those obstacles.”

Not long after the announcement, Meghan took part in a panel hosted at King’s College London, alongside Annie Lennox, Adwoa Aboah, Chrisann Jarrett, Julia Gillard, and Angie Murimirwa.

The mum-to-be looked stunning as always in a Reiss mini dress, which she paired with a black McQueen blazer, and her favourite Manolo Blahnik pumps.
