So cool! Duchess Meghan has made a new friend! The 38-year-old royal reportedly spent the afternoon with her new pal, Hillary Clinton, at her Frogmore Cottage residence — this after the politician came to her defense in regards to all the public backlash she’s been receiving.
“Both women have a lot of admiration for each other and it was a very sweet, warm meeting,” a source recently revealed to the Daily Mail. “They are mutual fangirls!”
While spending the day together, Meghan and Hillary discussed many interesting topics, like the letter the Duchess of Sussex wrote her when she was just a little girl. At the time, Meghan was very concerned about a “sexist” ad she saw on TV, so she wrote a note to the former first lady asking her for her help — and Hillary actually responded.
The company who made the ad ended up changing the content in it’s commercial. By doing that, they showed Meghan just how important it is to have a voice. “If you see something that you don’t like or are offended by on television or any other place, write letters and send them to the right people and you can really make a difference not just for yourself but for a lot of other people,” her younger self said in a video she shared to Instagram for International Day of the Girl.
Hillary has also shown just how much she is inspired by Meghan in a previous interview that she did with the BBC. The Chicago native stood up for her friend after she heard Prince Harry‘s wife publicly talking about her struggles in the British royal family.
“She has made her own way in the world,” Hillary said. “Then she falls in love, and he falls in love with her, and everybody should be celebrating that because it is a true love story. You can just look at them and see that.”
“You know, it’s not easy. And there are some techniques that can be learned along the way, some humor, some deflection, whatever, which I’m sure she will come to,” she added. “But it is tough what she is going through. And I think she deserves a lot better.”
