The only thing we love more than a royal family get-together? A royal family get-together that encourages, empowers, and inspires women. On Wednesday, February 28th, the royal dream team — consisting of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle — attended the first annual Royal Foundation Forum.

During the forum, Markle was asked how she will help empower women once she begins working with the Royal Foundation, aka after her epic royal wedding to Prince Harry. And her response will have you cheering. First, Markle shared that she’s already started doing some charity work behind the scenes. Then, she made an excellent point about female empowerment.

“What’s interesting is, I hear a lot of people saying — when speaking about girls’ empowerment, finding and knowing their worth, or women’s empowerment as well — you’ll often hear people say, ‘Well, you’re helping women finding their voices.’ And I fundamentally disagree with that,” Markle said. “Women don’t need to find a voice. They have a voice. They need to feel empowered to use it, and people need to be encouraged to listen.”

Markle also mentioned the importance of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.

"And I think right now in the climate that we're seeing so many campaigns — Me Too and Time's Up — there's no better time than to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered, and people really helping support them. Men included in that. It makes such a tremendous difference."
