On March 11th, The United Kingdom and the Commonwealth celebrated Commonwealth Day. The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attended two engagements to celebrate this special day.

The couple learned more about Canadian traditions, such as making maple taffy (candy made of maple syrup on a stick or in the snow in some Canadian regions), they met Canadians working in different areas such as fashion, business or arts. Harry & Meghan were given some gifts for Baby Sussex – a onesie and some baby shoes – before they left. The Duchess celebrated Canada by wearing a Canadian brand, Erdem. VIDEOVIDEO

Some quotes of the Duchess of Sussex – Source : The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust

The Duchess, newly appointed Vice-President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, said: “Inequality is a global issue, so we’re all experiencing the same issues in different ways. As a united force, we have to tackle this. We have to see it as a global challenge that we’re all looking to solve. When women miss out on careers, education or opportunities because of the system that they live in, we all suffer. It affects everything.”

The Duchess of Sussex also discussed what first motivated her to become a passionate advocate for women’s rights, stating “at age 11, I saw a commercial on television that struck me as wrong and I complained to the station. I didn’t know why, but I knew something wasn’t right. Someone had to say something, so I thought ‘why not me?’ Since then, I’ve always believed that you have to speak up when you see injustice. I’m thrilled that my role in the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust allows me to do this.”
