  • The Duchess of Sussex the latest royal to feature in an op-ed

Meghan Markle recently lent her voice to a special op-ed piece in honour of Black History Month! As Hello! shares, the Duchess of Sussex contributed to university professor Anita Hill's article about the significance of the Supreme Court's decision to nominate a Black woman, reflecting on what it means in a historical context.

Meghan says Supreme Court "opened new ground"

Meghan specifically mentioned Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson by name, saying that her nomination "has opened new ground for women's representation at the highest level of a judicial system that for too long has tilted against the very community she hails from." She then went on to address how this event can inspire both generations of young girls, as well as a reflection on Black history within a broader cultural context. 

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex arrives with her mother Doria Ragland and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex to host a launch event for a special cookbook on September 20, 2018.

The Duchess of Sussex urged people to "remind ourselves that Black achievement is something that exists not just today or yesterday, and not just in moments of celebration, but as a fabric woven into the entire chronicle of the American story." Hill, who works at Brandeis University, explained why she wanted to have Meghan involved in her article.

She said that Meghan's own "experience navigating uncharted territory as a Black woman" was something she saw as parallel to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's experience. Meghan recently stepped out to attend the NAACP Image Awards, where she received a special honour along with Prince Harry. Her mother Doria Ragland was also in attendance, and both she and Meghan looked incredible!
