Meghan Markle’s not the only feminist royal! Lady Amelia Windsor joins the cause
MEGHAN MARKLE, Prince Harry’s fiancee, has impressed a legion of fans with her women’s rights advocacy. Now Lady Amelia Windsor has joined in the cause with this Instagram post.
Meghan Markle, 36, is a staunch women’s rights advocate.
She will have her royal wedding to Prince Harry on May 19, and revealed that Prince Harry is a feminist to crowds in Scotland.
Now it seems Meghan is not the only royal with political leanings.
Lady Amelia Windsor, whose father George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews, is the Queen’s nephew, is also a feminist.
The 22-year-old royal who is a student at the University of Edinburgh posted an image of the “woman power” symbol, a fist in the venus symbol.
The image is associated with “radical feminism” of the 60s and 70s.
Around the outside of the image are the phrases “women unite” and “solidarity with womens struggles all over the world”.
Amelia’s own captions said: “Everyday Everywhere #internationalwomensday #womensrights #genderequality”.
One of her followers seemed surprised to see the sentiment from a member of the Royal Family.
They wrote: “Radical Feminism from a smart Aristocratic girl?!…”
Meghan Markle has been an advocate for women’s rights since a young age.
She revealed at the UN Women’s 20th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference of Women in Beijing: “When I was just 11 years old, I unknowingly and somehow accidentally became a female advocate.”
She revealed that she wrote to a soap company Procter & Gamble and women’s rights advocates Hillary Clinton and Linda Ellerbee, to highlight the company’s tagline: “Women all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans.”
The company changed this tagline to read: “People all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans.”
In fact, Meghan was voted to be more “in tune” with the British public than Kate Middleton thanks to these feminist views.
The survey asked 2,311 Britons aged over 18 their thoughts on the British Royal Family.
Meghan Markle was preferred to Kate Middleton because “she’s a feminist.”
The majority of respondents stated it was because “she was an actress in the public eye before the engagement” (31 per cent), whilst others stated it was because “she seems so down to earth” (14 per cent).
Meghan Markle’s wedding may also have feminist elements to the big day.
It was revealed by the Sunday Times earlier this month that the royal-to-be is planning to make her own speech.
