Meghan Markle urged women “to be the visionary of your own life” in her impassioned acceptance speech in New York on Tuesday.
Meghan’s husband Prince Harry and mother Doria Ragland beamed with pride as the Duchess of Sussex took home Ms Foundation’s Women of Vision Award, which recognises women who have had a significant positive impact in their respective fields.
Speaking to the audience as she accepted the award in New York on Tuesday, Meghan said: “It’s just never too late to start. You can be the visionary of your own life.
“You can charter a path in which what you repeat in your daily acts of service, in kindness, in advocacy, in grace and in fairness, that those become the very things that are recognised by the next wave of women, both young and old who will also choose this moment to join the movement, and make our vision for an equitable world, reality.”
The Duchess also regaled the audience with a childhood anecdote during her acceptance speech, which captured how much the award meant to her.
The actress also told the audience how when she was younger, she would come home from school and see Ms Foundation’s Ms Magazine on the coffee table every day.

“And I would glance at the coffee table, where I would see an array of things.
