Meghan Markle’s “introduction trip” to the UK continued today with the couple visiting Birmingham, about 2 hours north of London, to learn more about local initiatives happening in the community and to mark International Women’s Day.
Meghan and Harry first visited Millennium Point to take part in a celebration marking International Women’s Day at an event hosted by the Stemmettes, a local social enterprise which encourages girls aged between 5–22 years old to pursue careers in the STEM industries – science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Meghan and Harry met with women who had benefited from the organization’s work and a personal highlight for bloggers like us being Meghan and Harry joining women building apps!
Following the visit to Millennium Point, Meghan and Harry ventured to Nechells Wellbeing Centre to join the Royal Foundation’s Coach Core apprentices take part in a training masterclass. Through the program, apprentices learn sport skills alongside employability and mentoring skills to help participants. Meghan and Harry chatted with participants to see how they have benefited from the program which launched in Birmingham in 2017.
