Meghan Markle pays a repeat visit to feminist climate change group in Vancouver

Meghan Markle made a surprise visit to a feminist climate change group on Tuesday.

The Duchess of Sussex, 42,  visited the Justice for Girls group to discuss ‘girls’ and young women’s leadership’ and have a ‘heartfelt conversation’ about ‘justice and equality for teen girls living in poverty in Canada‘.

She first visited the group in January 2020, just days after she and Prince Harry sensationally announced their plans to leave the royal family.

Opting for £1,349 Ralph Lauren Charmain Silk Wide-Leg trousers, which she previously wore to Wimbledon, a white jumper, and £46 Edge of Ember ‘Wave’ Earrings, the royal looked at ease as she chatted to women at the charity.

She added her favourite Cartier ‘Love’ yellow gold bracelet priced at £7,050, Princess Diana‘s Gold Tank Française Watch, and her £15,000 Lorraine Schwartz ‘Against Evil Eye’ bracelet.

‘Together with our teen interns, staff, directors, and board members, we talked about Justice for Girls’ decades of work advocating for girls’ access to education, freedom from violence, Indigenous rights, and environmental justice.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in Canada for work to promote the next Invictus Games, which will be held in Vancouver and Whistler in February 2025

Her appearance comes as the Duchess cheered Prince Harry on as he dropped the first puck at the NHL hockey game.

The California-based couple watched the Vancouver Canucks beat the San Jose Sharks 3-1 from a VIP box at the Rogers Arena, at one point watching the action while cuddling and later jumping in the air to cheer a goal.

When the Canucks won the match, Harry leapt up and Meghan put down her wine glass so they could both dance to celebrate the victory as Simple Minds’ hit Don’t You Forget About Me.

Also with them was Markus Anderson, a friend of Meghan’s from Toronto when they she was filming Suits who helped organise her first date with Harry in London.

Harry’s ceremonial puck drop came 21 years after the late Queen did the same when the same teams played each in 2002. She was on an 11-day tour in Canada in honour of her Golden Jubilee.

Their visit came a week after a whistleblower told MailOnline that the Games is in ‘turmoil’ after two of its most senior executives were ‘dismissed for no apparent reason’ with just over a year to go.

Meghan has long been associated with the Soho House properties due to her long-standing friendship with Markus Anderson, the lifestyle club chain’s Chief Membership Officer.

Mr Anderson was also at the Canucks game, at one point standing with the Duchess of Sussex to cheer the team.

It was Anderson who arranged a private room at Soho House in London for the Montecito-based couple’s first date, while Meghan threw a low-key hen night ahead of her 2018 wedding at Soho Farmhouse in Chipping Norton, UK.

Originally, he invited her to join Soho House when she was still a TV soap actress in Toronto, and it was Markus who facilitated all of Harry and Meghan’s early dates in London and Oxfordshire.

Markus is very good friends with New York-based fashion designer Misha Nonoo, who is said to have introduced Meghan and Harry to each other.

Both Markus and Misha spent time with the royal newlyweds, staying for extended stretches with them in the UK, before Megxit.

Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, made the ceremonial puck drop at a 2002 match, also between the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks, during her two-week Golden Jubilee tour of Canada.

It was the first NHL game the Queen had attended since 1951 when, still a princess, she and Prince Philip watched the Montreal Canadiens take on the New York Rangers.

The Sussexes’ sporting outing comes a few days after Meghan’s surprise arrival at the Variety Power Of Women event in Los Angeles to celebrate the accomplishments of women in entertainment.

The former Suits actress said she was ‘thrilled’ to have returned to the entertainment industry with Archewell Productions and is ‘really proud’ of the projects they have has created so far, including docu-series Harry & Meghan and Heart Of Invictus.

She also teased future projects, saying: ‘We have so many exciting things on the slate… I can’t wait until we can announce them, but I’m just really proud of what we’re creating. My husband is loving it too which is really fun.’

Experts told MailOnline that they believe the flurry of A-list appearances is a PR ‘tactic’ to pitch for lucrative work and create a new buzz around Meghan, and her husband.

The Invictus Games will be held in Vancouver and Whistler in February 2025 and will feature winter sports for the first time.
