The only thing better than marrying a prince? Marrying the kind of partner and best friend who believes in gender equality.

While visiting Cardiff today, on her first official royal engagement in Wales, Meghan Markle officially confirmed that her groom-to-be is a feminist.

As you can hear in the video clip below from The Sun reporter Jake Royston, a well-wisher stopped Markle to tell her how great it is to have a feminist in the royal family. To which the soon-to-be royal replied, "Thank you," and then quickly added, "well, he's a feminist too," gesturing to Prince Harry.


While Harry has made thoughtful statements in the past about closing the international education gap and the devastating effects of patriarchal practices such as child marriage, as well as denouncing the trolls who made sexist and racist comments about Markle in the early days of his relationship, we have yet to hear him describe himself as a feminist. We're looking forward to this use of the F-word.

While in Cardiff, the engaged couple not only visited the historic castle but also met with members of the organizations UsGirls and Street Games, which encourage young people to stay active and participate in sports.
