Meghan Markle is finishing her Fiji stay in style.

After two spending two days in the country's capital, the Duke and Duchess jetted this morning to Nadi, another city on Fiji's main island. Meghan stepped off the plane sporting a green dress by Jason Wu. She paired the look with statement earrings and black pumps.

Meghan has been on a fashion roll these past few days. Yesterday's stunning ruffled pink dress (accented with pom-poms, no less!) came right after the bold caped blue gown she chose for her first state dinner.

But with Meghan, the style always comes alongside some substance. When visiting the University of the South Pacific yesterday, she took the opportunity to speak out about the importance of women's higher education—and the undue financial burden college often comes with. It's a topic that hits close to home for Meghan.

"Providing [women] with access to education is the key to economic and social development," he said in a speech at the University. "I am also fully aware of the challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling for so many people around the world—myself included. It was through scholarships, financial aid programs and work-study... that I was able to attend university."

The Duchess then announced that two new grants had been awarded to Fiji National University and the University of the South Pacific, which will fund professional development programs for the institutions' female faculty. The empowered women will in turn be able to help students and young professionals up the ladder.

With her moving speech, Meghan was able to make her short trip in Fiji feel meaningful (after just one engagement in Nadi, the royal couple are off to Tonga).

We'll stay tuned for any more moves—fashion-related and otherwise—that Meghan makes on her and Harry's royal tour.
