"Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash, and she's finding the whole situation incredibly stressful", a royal insider explained. "Her Royal Highness feels she can use her position to focus attention on, and make a particular difference to these organizations and, more widely, the sectors they each represent".

Meghan Markle is applying her passions to her work with the royal family! She also served as an ambassador for United Nations Women.
