In the short video, former actress Meghan Markle and wife of Prince Harry can be seen joking with actress Melissa McCarthy, two months after giving birth to her second child, Lilibet.
“Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help guide a woman who is preparing to return to the workforce,” the Duchess said afterwards.
“I think if we all do it, and we spend 40 minutes doing something like this, it will have a ripple effect,” she added.
Millions of people around the world have lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meghan Markle appears with Prince Harry juggling
In the video, Prince Harry can be seen at one point juggling. The couple now live in an upscale area of California, near some of America’s richest celebrities.
After announcing that they were leaving the British royal family, Harry and Meghan gave a shock interview to television host Oprah Winfrey in March this year.
Among other explosive revelations, they reported that a member of the royal family, whom they did not name, had worried about the color of skin their son Archie would have, before he was born, his mother being mixed race.
Since then, Prince Harry has announced that he will publish memoirs at the end of 2022 retracing his “mistakes” and the “lessons he has learned”, according to his publishing house.
And the Archewell Foundation, managed by Harry and Meghan Markle, announced that the latter would produce an animated series for Netflix to encourage young girls to emancipate themselves, inspired by female characters who have made history.
They have also signed lucrative partnerships with the Netflix and Spotify platforms.
