Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Meghan Markle recently penned an essay for Elle UK while Prince Harry is busy visiting the Caribbean.

Prince Harry is visiting the area in place of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and was offered by the Prime Minister of Antigua that he and girlfriend Markle could have their honeymoon in the area if they get married. More on Prince Harry and the comments of Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda, the leader told Prince Harry that he believes a new Princess is expected soon. Browne went on to say, "I want you to know that you are very welcome to come on your honeymoon here.”

Prince Harry reportedly seemed embarrassed over the comments of the Prime Minister and avoided eye contact with the leader. He did not talk about his girlfriend Markle at any point during his visit in the area.

As for the actress’ essay with Elle UK, she talked about the side that a lot of people do not know about her, which is her humanitarian work specifically supporting gender equality. On her essay, she said that her mother raised her to be a global citizen that is why her eyes are open even if it is about harsh realities.

She is an advocate for UN Women added that her parents came from poor families so they made a choice to give a lot such as buying turkeys for homeless shelters, delivering meals to people in hospitals, and giving spare change to those asking. She pointed out that those acts of her parents made her a young adult with a social consciousness to do what she could and speak up when she believes something is wrong.

She began to speak out against gender inequality when she was only 11 years old. She said that back in school, a dish-washing liquid commercial came on TV and the tagline says that women all over American are fighting greasy pots and pans. Markle went on to say that her male classmates began to yell that women belong in the kitchen.

Markle got mad and went home to write feminist civil rights layer Gloria Allred and Hillary Clinton. Months after, the commercial’s tagline reads: “People all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans.”

It is unclear if Markle will be following Prince Harry at the Caribbean.
