The Royals aren't the only famous Brits taking over Canada today. Emma Watson is in the country as well to keep fighting the gender equality fight, meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss the issue and her HeForShe campaign yesterday.

Today, the actress took to Instagram to show off her self-defense skills, thanks to a class held by entrepreneur Lina Khalifeh. "Ready for anything after @SheFighter training with Lina Khalifeh," she captioned the action shot. "She opened the first self defense studio for women in the Middle East. I’ll be chatting with her and 8 other activists about challenging gender stereotypes at @OneYoungWorld Ottawa later today."

Watson gave a speech at the UN General Assembly in New York City last week discussing gender equality, specifically how we can prevent sexual violence in universities. There's clearly no stopping the dedicated actress and activist, as she has been attending various events at the One Young World Summit, along with other young leaders from across the globe, to discuss issues that are relevant to today's teens and young adults.

As the founder of HeForShe and an avid gender equality activist, Watson looks fierce and truly "ready for anything" in the photo. Hermione would be proud.
