"Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly the education they have the right to receive. And for women and girls in developing countries, this is vital.” — swipe to watch The Duchess of Sussex’s first speech, announcing the award of two new grants to Fiji National University and @UniSouthPacific. These grants will allow them to run workshops which empower their female staff, ensure that women are provided with the training and skills to operate effectively in their roles, and those with leadership potential are given the opportunity to be heard and recognised at the most senior level. #RoyalVisitFiji #Fiji #Suva
Meghan Markle’s recent trip to Australia with Prince Harry has allowed her to put some personal travel hacks to use. Many of which the actress turned Duchess of Sussex shared in her lifestyle blog: The Tig.
One tip that appeared brought extra attention to us is laying dryer sheets between her clothes in the luggage. Markle said,
“Clothes will smell fresh when you arrive—and especially when you return home!”
This smart hack not only makes so much sense, it’s also so cheap that we’re going to run and stock up on softeners so that our clothes never have to stink coming out of the baggage.
In addition to always bringing a hand sanitizer, some other hacks include packing a multi-use stick and facial spray for a fresh look before the plane lands. The duchess explains:
“Pack your favorite multi-use stick and face spritz for a quick touch up on cheeks, lips, face when you land.”
Another good thing to have around, according to Markle, is a probiotic. “Always travel with a high strain probiotic, and hydrate like you’re dying of thirst – because even if you’re not, for your body – the thirst is real,. This dynamic duo of probiotics and agua will keep your gut health in check and honestly stave off jet lag if you’re globetrotting on your travels,” she said.
Once arriving at the destination, Markle suggests signing up for a cooking or dance class to mingle with locals. As we know already, it’s the best way to experience an authentic culture!
