From the moment Meghan Markle said “yes!” to now-fiance Prince Harry, her life has become a whirlwind of excitement. In a couple of months, she will become a wife and has a lot of preparation to do before she’s officially a member of the British royal family.
One of the duties involved in her new role is to make frequent trips and visits to various cities and countries. On International Women’s Day (March 8), the lovely couple traveled to Birmingham, England, to meet with young females who dream of careers in math, science, engineering, and technology.
During this visit, the crowds went wild with excitement as the Royals took time to greet the crowds. As they passed by, one young girl, in particular, caught Prince Harry’s attention. Young Sophia Richards told Harry that she aspired to be an actress. As soon as he heard this, a smile broke across his face, and he knew just what he had to do.
He immediately ushered her out of the crowd and toward his fiance. The young girl was completely speechless as she neared Markle. The encounter ended in a warm embrace between the two, leaving a lasting impact. It was a moment that will forever be in her memory.
One source met with Sophia afterward, noting her statement about the encounter:
“I will never forget this day. Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve. And Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress.”
This one simple act helped brighten the life of a young dreamer, spurring her own toward a goal that some might think inconceivable. This further goes on to prove that Markle is well on her way to being a wonderful member of the royal family.
