  • The Duchess of Cambridge stunned in her finery

Meghan's attendance at the meeting of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) was not publicised ahead of time.

In the audience listening to the sell-out speech was the Duchess of Sussex who had slipped in quietly with just a few security staff to listen to Michelle's words without drawing attention to herself.

And I'm crediting Royal Meghan for making it happen. While traveling overseas with Prince Harry on their first official royal tour, the former actress addressed students at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji.

Discussions focused on the role of universities in addressing human trafficking and modern slavery, gender equality and inclusion, peace and reconciliation, and climate change and resilience.

"As a university graduate, I know the personal feeling of pride and excitement that comes with attending university".

It was not clear whether the group would face charges and deportation or if they had requested asylum in the United States. The pictures emerged as it was revealed thousands of desperate families are resorting to crossing the border illegally.

The duchess chose the Lover's Knot, a diamond and pearl encrusted piece that dates back to 1914, previously preferred by her late mother-in-law Princess Diana.

She described the education of women and girls in developing countries as "vital", and called higher education's impact "incredible, impactful and pivotal".

"What I'd say is that there's so much opportunity to do good with a platform like that - and I think Meghan can maximise her impact for others, as well her own happiness, if she's doing something that resonates with her personally", Michelle said. Photos of Meghan leaving the event showed the royal's growing baby bump, which appears to have popped!

While attending the event, which was held at St. Luke's Church in the Kensington neighborhood of London, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made speeches. The service was held in Chelsea in support of the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which was set up in memory of a school friend of both Princes William and Harry, who died in a tragic vehicle crash in 2002 aged just 18.
