Meghan helps the girls with business pitches as a guest coach for an entrepreneur session

The Duchess of Sussex has taken on the role of guest coach for an entrepreneurship course for girls.

Meghan visited the Project Fearless initiative in Amsterdam in April while in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

Photos shared by the Dutch nonprofit on Monday showed Meghan hugging a delighted young participant and also clapping with her hand in the air in a team photo with the teenagers.

The Fearless Project aims to give girls and non-binary youth aged 9-14 the tools to succeed through after-school classes, including but not limited to climate science, skateboarding, kickboxing and entrepreneurship.

He announced the Duchess’ visit to mark her third birthday.

He describes how former actress Meghan helped students with their business presentations and “enthusiastic” took part in a group exercise on dealing with fears.
