Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now stepped down from their roles as ‘senior royals’, they’ve been busy.

The pair most recently visited Stanford University to “brainstorm” with professors about their ongoing work to found a global non-profit organisation.

Prince Harry and Meghan met with the university’s president Marc Tessier-Lavigne, located in Silicon Valley, according to NBC reports.

Both Harry and Meghan flew to California from Canada, where they are currently residing with their son Archie.

When the duke and duchess announced that they would be stepping down, they highlighted how their newly-launched website Sussex Royal would be part of their “new chapter”.

“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” their website explains.

The duchess has already started doing charity work, visiting two local women’s charities last month, including Downton Eastside Women’s Centre and also Justice for Girls.

"The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community," Downton Eastside Women's Centre posted to their Facebook page at the time.

"Yesterday, The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle visited to discuss climate justice for girls and the rights of Indigenous peoples. Was great to talk about the importance of a holistic approach to social justice, and the power of young women’s leadership," Justice for Girls shared on their Twitter last month.
