“I hear a lot of people speaking about girls’ empowerment and women’s empowerment; you will hear people saying they are helping women find their voices. I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find their voices; they need to be empowered to use it and people need to be urged to listen,” the former actor said.

She also suggested she would have to wait until after her wedding on 19th May before committing to the upcoming projects: “I guess we wait a couple of months and then we can hit the ground running,” she laughed. “We can hold tight until that’s done.”
Harry agreed: “We’re pretty tied up with planning a wedding at the moment but we’re hoping to make as much of a difference as we can.”
During her speech at the forum, the Duchess of Cambridge also asserted the Foundation’s commitment to social change. “The work we do can, and should, have a long-lasting resonance. For this reason, we are able to support causes which we’re passionate about for decades into the future. Rather than just for a few months or years.”
The Prince of Wales echoed this message: “When we work together, we are greater than the sum of our parts. When we work together, we bring unlimited creativity, passion, and expertise to the table. When we work together, we can achieve incredible things.”
