Prince Harry‘s new beau Meghan Markle isn’t just an actress starring on the hit show Suits.
Amid the couple making their “serious” relationship public, those who know the starlet are speaking up about her humanitarian work and “compassion”.
Forbes Africa’s “Person of the Year” Thuli Madonsela, who met the 35-year-old through U.K. based charity One Young World, gushed to People:
“What struck me about her was her personality, compassion and her brain. She is extremely bright. I wanted to know why she was involved in helping young people to discover themselves. She encountered some forms of discrimination and awkward moments. When she had this platform, she thought it was her job to make it easier for other young people to discover themselves and lead their fullest life.”
And the South African lawyer continued, adding:
“Apart from being smart, she’s a very balanced, mature, original thinker.”
Sounds like Harry is lucky to be with her!
Another South African lawyer Phiwokuhle Nogwaza even recalled a speech Meghan gave at an organization summit back in 2014:
“She came across and genuine and warm. Her speech still resonates with me today. It was a call to action ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ if someone like her can be involved in the work she is involved in then not a lot of us have any reason not to be active.”
It’s not for show either, as Phiwokuhle added “human rights are close to her heart”, and explained:
“She was mobilizing people to get involved in whatever little way that you can. She is basically saying this is a problem we all have to deal with and we need to put the right voices are put their weight behind it, which she is happy to do.”
As for her personality??
“She is really soft and gentle. She is friendly and very warm and engaging. It didn’t feel like I was speaking to someone from one of the biggest shows on TV. It was like talking to a regular girl. She knew the problems in detail, which I found incredible. She is humble and really down to earth.”
Her fellow humanitarians only have the highest praise for her so, it’s really no surprise Prince Harry and Meghan click!
They’re the new couple goals!
