Meghan Markle fans have praised the Duchess as “incredible” and a “force for good” after a charity shared memories of a previous visit. Myna Mahila Foundation posted details of a visit the Duchess undertook in 2017, before she married Prince Harry.

The charity, which has close links to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, shared an article previously written by Meghan to their Twitter followers.

They shared a Time article, which was written in March 2017, and is titled ‘Meghan Markle: How Periods Affect Potential’.

Accompanying the throwback article, the foundation said it reminded them of the Duchess’ visit to them in Mumbai.

They wrote: “This takes us back to our wonderful memories of #MeghanMarkle visiting us in Mumbai.

“Please read the article to learn more about what Meghan had to say about #periods.”

Royal fans were quick to praise Meghan for her role in the historic visit, where she raised awareness of period poverty in India and other developing countries.

One person wrote: “Meghan Markle is incredible”.

Another said: “She is a force for good. #SussexSquad.”

Meghan then called for change, and said girls need to have access to toilets at school, as only about 50 percent of secondary schools in India have them, as well as sanitary pads.

The Myna Mahila Foundation is a charity that empowers women in Mumbai’s urban slums by providing them with a trusted network, where they are supported professionally and personally to help them grow as individuals and businesswomen.

The charity also offers women stable employment near their homes and aims to break taboos around menstrual hygiene by offering women access to low cost sanitary pads and accurate information.

Providing women with these products help ensure young women and girls stay in school.

The charity also empowers its staff through training in women’s health, English, Math, and life skills such as self-defence.

Myna Mahila Foundation was also one of the seven charities nominated by Meghan and Harry to benefit from donations in lieu of wedding presents when the couple married in May 2018.
