Today Relate Bracelets’ founder, Lauren Gillis met with the Duchess of Sussex as Meghan continued her tour of Cape Town with a ‘Ladies who Launch' round table discussion that she held for female entrepreneurs.
This was Meghan Markle first solo engagement of the tour, the attending business innovators shared their passion for ideas, technology and making a positive social impact in an intimate setting at the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town. As a closure to the day, Lauren Gillis presented the Duchess with a Relate bracelet in support of woman entrepreneurs.
Female empowerment and championing women’s rights is a key focus for the Duchess. Throughout the afternoon, Meghan Markle was introduced to the amazing stories by the woman participants; how they started in business, their journey’s so far and future ambitions.
After the ‘Ladies who Launch’ event Meghan’s next stop was Mothers2Mothers, a NGO for mothers with HIV and also a partner of Relate Bracelets. Meghan was photographed interacting with the children wearing the Relate bracelet that Lauren Gillis had presented her earlier in the day.
In fact, this is not the first time Meghan Markle has worn a bracelet for a Relate cause; early in their relationship the two Royals were seen wearing Grassroots Soccer Bracelets, just one of the South African charities Prince Harry supports.
Prince Harry was spotted earlier today wearing his South African Parks bracelet when the Royal family met with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The Relate African Parks bracelet raised funds for the relocation of over 500 South African Elephants into Malawi.
