As it turns out, Meghan Markle coached girls in an entrepreneurship class during the Invictus Games.
The Duchess of Sussex took on the role of guest coach on the program while she was in the Netherlands for her husband Prince Harry’s sporting event in April.
The Project Fearless initiative in Amsterdam aims to give girls and non-binary youth aged nine to 14 the tools to be successful in after-school classes.
Photos shared by the Dutch non-profit organization on Monday showed Meghan hugging an enthusiastic young participant and also cheering with a hand raised in a team photo with the teenagers.
In another picture, the Duchess sits cross-legged in a discussion circle and stands at a whiteboard.
Meghan said: “Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless give girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience and embrace new challenges.”
Courses include activities such as skateboarding and kickboxing, as well as classes in climate science and entrepreneurship.
The project announced the Duchess’ visit for her third birthday.
It described how the former actress helped students with their business pitches and “enthusiastically” participated in a group exercise on dealing with anxiety.
“Earlier this year, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, attended our first entrepreneurship course as a guest coach,” the organization said.
“During her visit, she provided the girls with inspirational and encouraging feedback on their sustainable business presentations and enthusiastically participated in a group exercise on dealing with anxiety.”
Project Fearless Founder Merida Miller added: “The Duchess’ visit was an excellent way to celebrate the impact Project Fearless has made over the past three years by introducing the girls to an accessible role model that makes a difference and use her voice.”
