In preparation for her new role as a member of the British Royal Family, former actress Meghan Markle has taken on more responsibilities.


The couple will exchange wedding vows on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, which has hosted royal weddings for generations. 

As reported by Closer Weekly, the couple was appointed as Commonwealth Youth Ambassadors by Queen Elizabeth at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meetings. 

Prince Harry already has experience in this field and had helped out at the London office before. Harry was also in attendance during the Heads of Government meeting and gave a moving speech. 


He said that 'this generation of adults' are different because they are connected and have the advantages of technology to aid them in their missions to make a world a better place. 

"You care, you want your nations to be cleaner, your planet to be greener, your friends and neighbours to be treated fairly and with respect, no matter their ethnicity, their religion, or their status."

He also announced that his bride-to-be would join him on the new project, and added that she too is excited about the impact and change they hope to facilitate. 


Markle wasn't in attendance at the Heads of Government meeting but attended her first Commonwealth Yount Forum reception on April 18, 2018, where her new role was announced.


The Commonwealth is an intergovernmental organization comprising of more than fifty sovereign states, and Queen Elizabeth II is currently the Head of the Commonwealth. 

According to Telegraph, Prince Charles was announced as the Queen's designated successor at the most recent meeting.

It has to be noted that the position is not passed on as an inheritance, although Queen Elizabeth was announced as the Head after her father, George VI, passed away.
