After making her first public appearance since her royal exit, Meghan Markle had additional plans for her time in Vancouver. 

The Duchess took to the area's Downtown Eastside Women's Centre, where she met with a group of women at the shelter to discuss some of the most important issues affecting women in the community.

The Women's Centre shared a snapshot of Meghan posing amid some of the women she enjoyed tea with on its Facebook page.

"Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community," the post read. 

The Women's Centre has been a mainstay in the area since 1978, offering a "safe space for women and children." Attendees can get support, important necessities like clothing, and meals and work toward making positive changes in their lives there. The organization offers wellness, recreation, housing, and skills development options to help women in the community as well.

Women's rights advocacy as well as empowering girls and women is a topic that Meghan has championed ever since she took on her royal role. It looks like she's going to continue this work as she explores her life post-royal responsibilities. 

In late 2019, Meghan gave a powerful speech on October 11, the International Day of the Girl. She also spent time out from her royal tour of South Africa alongside Prince Harry to discuss important issues facing girls and women throughout the world through a "meeting of the minds."

Outside of her philanthropic efforts during this visit, some observant fans pointed out that Markle might be wearing a sweater from back in her Suits days. "Wonder if Meghan could be wearing her The Row ‘Bea’ sweater from “Suits!” Twitter user @Solidmoonlight wrote.

From the looks of it, she might right about the outfit identification but unfortunately for royal fashion fans, its currently sold out.
