The Duchess and Duke of Sussex made a surprise appearance during a Zoom mentoring session call and stunned a student who had no idea they would pop up on her screen.


According to People, when a student signed on a virtual mentoring session, she was staggered to see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on her screen. The royal couple was celebrating International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.

According to the outlet, they encouraged people to “unleash a groundswell of real acts of compassion,” with suggestions on their Archewell Foundation website.

One idea was to “tutor a teenage girl who is navigating high school on her computer,” which the pair took on firsthand. The Sussexes were set up with a teenage girl through volunteer organization L.A. Works and the “I Have A Dream” Foundation.

The system works to ensure that children have the opportunity to further their studies. The L.A. Works Executive Director Deborah Brutchey shared how the teenager reacted to seeing the couple.

“She had this moment of surprise and excitement when she got on the phone with the Duke and Duchess. She knew of them; she knew a lot – she had been following Meghan's story quite a bit, so she was excited that she had the opportunity to speak with them," said Brutchey.

According to the outlet, she said the young woman was "moved" by the Duke and Duchess' "compassion, humility, and wisdom.” Brutchey added it was significant for her because they saw her potential in a matter of minutes within the call.


According to Harper’s Bazaar, Markle and Prince Harry shared more than twenty “real acts of compassion” that will benefit women in communities everywhere. The duo has supported safe spaces for women and even helped them to look for employment.

They have also expressed support for military spouses and ordered from female-led restaurant businesses. The campaign mentioned earlier came as a result of in-depth planning with leaders and organizations that focus on women and women’s advocacy. 


The Duke and Duchess are also soaring in terms of business as they recently hired an Oscar-nominated producer to lead their multimillion-dollar deals with Spotify and Netflix.

According to The Sun, Ben Browning will take on a new role as head of content for the creative arm of charity Archewell. He is the former production president of FilmNation and was recently nominated for five Academy Awards, including best picture.


Things are going well for the couple as Prince Harry has recently secured two jobs since moving to the States. According to E! Online, Aspen Institute announced that the Duke joined their team as a commissioner.

The 36-year-old's role will assist the institute in its battle to stop the spread of misinformation. Speaking on his new role, he said he looks forward to working on a solution-orientated approach to the information disorder crisis.


Meanwhile, in England, the Cambridges teamed up for a virtual call with nursing students in Northern Island in February. Middleton has been a patron of the Nursing Now initiative, aiming to raise nurses' profile globally since 2018.

According to People, one student named Abigail McGarvey shared her story about a typical first shift for a first-year training nurse during the pandemic. McGarvey shared the challenges she faced in her working experience.

Across all of Ulster University's nursing training courses, students were asked to join the frontlines since the COVID-19 pandemic hit last year in March. The student's placements materialized to meet the needs and demands of the health service.
