Duchess Meghan known to value the importance of education

Meghan and Harry haven't revealed the name of their charity yet, but it's no surprise it's related to education. That's because Meghan has been an active proponent of education before, making it one of the key causes she's chosen to champion! She attended Northwestern University, and selected the ACU (The Association of Commonwealth Universities) as one of her primary royal patronages.
