La duquesa de Sussex pidió a una corte británica evitar que un diario publique los nombres de cinco amigas que la defendieron al hablar con una revista estadounidense bajo anonimato. La duquesa, conocida previamente como Meghan Markle hizo la solicitud en una declaración como testigo en su demanda contra el diario Daily Mail y su empresa matriz por fragmentos de una carta “privada y confidencial″ que escribió a su padre y que el diario publicó el año pasado.

Meghan will join her friend Priyanka Chopra as well as former First Lady Michelle Obama in speaking at the Girl Up Global Leadership Summit virtual event which will take place between 13-15 July.

“The present is female! But don't take our word for it,” Girl Up announced on Twitter.

“Hear Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex's advice for global girls leaders when she takes the stage at the 2020 @GirlUp Leadership Summit, happening virtually July 13-15!”

Meghan will give the keynote speech, Michelle will offer a special message, and Priyanka will take part in a Q&A session.

Sheryl Sandberg is also giving a talk on equality and female empowerment, while other stars who will also be involved in the summit include Chloe x Halle, Storm Reid, Jameela Jamil and Bebe Rexha.

Organisers of the conference previously admitted they were "honoured" to have Michelle involved with the event on behalf of the Obama Foundation's Girls Opportunity Alliance, a scheme which seeks to use education to empower adolescent girls around the world.

“The impact she has made in this country, and around the world, is deeply inspiring and motivating to our girl leaders -she's a role model for using your voice,” Girl Up's executive director, Melissa Kilby, said last month.

Girl Up was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2010 and works with a global community of partners to achieve gender equality worldwide.
