Meghan Markle launches her 40th Birthday volunteering initiative in a comedy skit with Melissa McCarthy
To celebrate her 40th Birthday Meghan Markle teamed up with Melissa McCarthy in a comedy skit during which Meghan explains her 40x40 volunteering / mentoring project.
In an accompanying story posted on Meghan's and Prince Harry's website, Meghan explains why she launched this initiative that sees her asking 40 of her friends to commit 40 minutes of their time to mentor women as they re-enter the workforce.
Meghan explains that she is conscious of the millions of women around the world who left the work force in the last 2 years, largely due to COVID-19 issues. Meghan reminds us that women were disproportionately effected by changes to the work place as a result of the pandemic.
You will see Meghan blow out a candle on a (small) birthday cake in the video, a cameo appearance from Prince Harry, and Melissa McCarthy doing what she does best - making us all smile!
