Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s visit to the Queen wasn’t the only secret trip the Duchess of Sussex took during the couple’s April voyage to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.
In a new post shared on June 13, the Amsterdam organization Project Fearless revealed that Markle stopped by in April to act as a guest coach for one of their after-school programs for girls and nonbinary children from the ages of 9 to 14. For the occasion, Meghan Markle wore a nude blazer over a black shirt and pants. Though the designer of the blazer is unconfirmed, one Markle fan account believes it to be by Chloé. Markle’s hair was let down in loose waves.
“Earlier this year, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, joined our first Entrepreneurship course as a guest coach,” Project Fearless shared on Instagram. “During her visit, she gave the girls inspiring and encouraging feedback on their sustainable business pitches, and enthusiastically joined in with a group exercise on facing fears.” (See the photos below.)
Meghan Markle praised the after-school programs in a statement shared by the organization. “Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless allow girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience, and tackle new challenges,” the Duchess said.
Following the couple’s private visit with Queen Elizabeth in April, which happened to mark Meghan Markle’s first time in the U.K. since their move to the states in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex brought their children to London to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
Though the couple reportedly introduced their one-year-old daughter, Lilibet Diana, to her great-grandmother, the family mostly remained out of the spotlight. Based on photographs from the festivities and reports from royal experts, the couple did not spend time with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
“For [Meghan and Harry], being here is all about honoring and celebrating the life and legacy of the queen, someone they have continued a close relationship with,” royal expert Omid Scobie said during an appearance on BBC Breakfast. “We know that is not the same with the other royal family members.”
