Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) congratulate Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle on their engagement.

Ms Markle has been campaigning for women’s rights and gender equality for several years, and is a UN Women Advocate.  This is at the heart of the work that Soroptimists do, so we are delighted that she will be joining the Royal Family and will be able to bring these issues to the fore.

We wish the happy couple every happiness for the future.
