Meghan Markle Had to Take Part in a Kidnapping Training Before Joining the Royal Family

Royal etiquette wasn't the only thing she had to master.

It's not just any backyard chat. Tomorrow, Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem are sitting down for a conversation about representation, the importance of voting, and how women should support one another for MAKERS, a platform that highlights the women's movement through intimate talks and sharing stories. Harper's Bazaar's royals editor, Omid Scobie, made the announcement on his Twitter feed, sharing a short preview of the clip.

In the black-and-white video, which looks like it was filmed at an idyllic Idyllwild retreat (there are dogs, old trees, flowy clothes, and sunglasses), Meghan and Steinem joke before they get down to business, talking about how women should be "linked" to one another and not "ranked" against each other, how every single vote counts during the election, and how young people — and young voters — can often feel marginalized or ignored when it comes to politics.

Throughout it all, Meghan's got on a relaxed white outfit, which contrasts with Steinem's all-black outfit, and viewers can even spot a wide-brim hat that steals the show during its brief cameo.

"Duchess Meghan and @GloriaSteinem have filmed a conversation on representation, the importance of each vote and how all women 'are linked, not ranked' for @MAKERSwomen (a platform accelerating the women's movement through stories of real life experiences)," he wrote. "It'll be out tomorrow."

According to Yahoo!, a Q&A session will follow the interview, which the site is calling a "historic backyard chat." Steinem's been hosting conversations all summer long, including talks with Dr. Kirstin Ferguson and Ronan Farrow.
