Prince Harry: “I’m a feminist”



Yesterday, while on a visit to a flower arranging session at Tomorrow’s Women Wirral in Birkenhead, Prince Harry admitted that he was a feminist.

Tomorrow’s Women Wirral was described by Kensington Palace as “an organisation that supports women in vulnerable circumstances.”

The Prince was visiting Birkenhead with his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex when His Royal Highness said, “I am a feminist.”

The CEO of Tomorrow’s Women, Angela Murphy, told Hello!, “Harry said, ‘I’m a feminist’. Harry said it’s really important that men are involved. It’s true, you’ve got to be working together. There’s no divide between men and women with regard to these issues.”

She added about Meghan, “Meghan was very clear about the fact that she really wanted to promote empowering women and our strapline is women supporting women. She said (putting a hand on her heart) ‘Oh this is true to my heart’. She’s lovely, really lovely. Very considerate to the women as well, very interested.”

The Duke and Duchess also visited Hamilton Square to unveil a new statue, Number 7 supermarket in association with Feeding Birkenhead, and Hive Wirral Youth Zone.

The Duke of Sussex’s wife, the Duchess of Sussex has made no secret of her feminist beliefs. In the past, Meghan has proudly stated, “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.”

She also delivered a speech last year in New Zealand on the topic and women’s suffrage, reminding everyone that feminism “is about fairness.”

“Because yes, women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness. Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents: the basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future and that of your community, the involvement and voice that allows you to be a part of the very world that you are a part of,” she said.
