During the National Rugby League’s League in Harmony project at the Macarthur Girls High School today, October 20th, Meghan Markle revealed an interesting element from her past.
Today, young people gathered at the event to meet the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry in the midst of their royal tour of the former British colony, Australia.
A source who spoke with US Weekly explained that a young boy talked with the 37-year-old actress about his part-time job, and it reminded the Suits alum of some of her former duties.
Fans of Meghan know she came from a middle-class life, becoming a successful actress, and then joining the royal family of Britain. If anyone knows about climbing through the echelons of society, it’s Meghan.
Markle said to the young teen, “My first job was when I was 14, I remember taking out the trash, all sorts,” and the purpose of such, according to the Suits star, was to instill a solid work ethic.
Regarding the initiative, the star explained it’s important for people to understand their neighborhood, to know they’re all united, and to be proud of where they come from.
According to Prince Harry, the new generation of young people have more optimism, empathy, and kindness. It’s quite a bit different from the past, the royal family member remarked.
Meghan went on to become emotional when the students admitted they wanted to change the world for the better. And Prince Harry urged the boys to bring men into the fight for gender equality.
The Prince and his wife have traveled all over Australia for the past few days, visiting a farm in Dubbo, hanging out in Melbourne, and speaking with people about mental health while in Bondi Beach. They also stopped at the Anzac Memorial in Sydney.
