Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, who is in news for her pregnancy and welcoming the royal baby into the family is breaking the internet with her throwback saree picture. The never-seen-before footage is from the trip to India that she made back in January 2017. The pictures have surfaced around the social media and her fans just cannot stop gushing over her Indian look. In the photo, she can be seen donning a sari with shades of blue and green and sporting a traditional tilak on her forehead.
The 37-year-old travelled to New Delhi and Mumbai shortly after her romance with Prince Harry went public as part of her work with the charity World Vision, reports dailymail.co.uk. During the trip, Markle visited schools and helped to paint a mural and plant a flower in the gardens.
While on a visit to the school, Markle said: “What we found is that the enrolment at this school went up three times once the latrines were built so that girls had access to clean hygiene and bathroom facilities while they’re at school.”
She said some girls are forced to drop out of school because they don’t have “bathrooms available to care for themselves”.

During her trip, Markle took part in high-level meetings with various NGOs, including an audience with Shamina Shafiq, a former member of the National Commission for Women.
She was also introduced to the Myna Mahila Foundation, which works with women and girls who live in Mumbai’s urban slums. She was keen to highlight issues of gender equality and girls’ limited access to education in the country.
For the uninitiated, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married on May 19, 2018. From cake cutting ceremony to desserts, the royal couple has broken many royal protocols on their wedding day.
