PICS: Meghan Markle makes schoolgirl's day during public outing

Cape Town – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spent International Women’s Day visiting Birmingham, meeting the community and learning about its initiatives to help young people.

Upon their arrival the couple did a walkabout waving and shaking hands with the crowd.

One young girl, however, stood out from the rest as she is an aspiring young actress who was eager to meet Meghan – for obvious reason.

After hearing about 10-year-old Sophia Richards' aspirations, Prince Harry directed her to his fiancée in an instant, and of course, Meghan was only too happy to offer advice as well as a warm hug.

“Meghan told me that I can achieve whatever I want to achieve and Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress.

“It was a dream come true. I will never forget this day,” Sophia told journalists after the meeting E! News reported.
