Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to visit Birmingham on International Women’s Day

Kensington Palace has announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will visit Birmingham on 8th March which is International Women’s Day.

The couple will be in the city to learn about the work of two projects which support young people from the local community.

To mark International Women’s Day, the couple will attend an event at Millennium Point which hopes to inspire the next generation of young women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

According to the Palace, the event will bring together female students from local secondary schools to discuss future careers in STEM areas.

Prince Harry and his soon-to-be-bride will then visit Nechells Wellbeing Centre to join Birmingham’s Coach Core apprentices as they take part in a training masterclass led by Create Development.

This scheme is close to the young royal’s heart and was designed by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to train young to become sports coaches and mentors in their communities.

Harry and Meghan will meet some of the apprentices to talk about their experiences of the scheme – which launched in Birmingham last year.

They will then observe as practice training sessions are delivered in the sports hall.
