Supporting young Canadians in the United Kingdom

They also met with young Canadians working in fashion, the arts, business and academia. While no doubt a trip down memory lane for Meghan, who was based in Toronto for more than six years while filming Suits, it was also part of her official duties.

She was also named as vice president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust just a week ago. Prince Harry serves as president of the Trust, while Queen Elizabeth remains a patron.
