Meghan’s attendance at the meeting of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) was not publicised ahead of time.

The event was publicised after the fact when Laura Hammond, professor of development studies at SOAS University London, tweeted: ‘We had an excellent discussion about how research can tackle the problems of slavery and human trafficking. Thanks to HRH Duchess of Sussex for joining us!’

Her tweet was shared alongside a photo of Meghan, sitting at the head of a table and looking engaged as another attendee spoke.

The ACU said the event was an opportunity to explore how higher education can help build a better world.

Discussions focused on the role of universities in addressing human trafficking and modern slavery, gender equality and inclusion, peace and reconciliation, and climate change and resilience. 

The event follows her speech to students at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji in October.

Meghan spoke at the time of her struggle to finance her higher education and her ‘personal feeling of pride and excitement’ when she studied for her degree.

She described the education of women and girls in developing countries as ‘vital’, and called higher education’s impact ‘incredible, impactful and pivotal’.
