Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just surprised one very lucky girl with a private mentoring session.

In honor of Women's History Month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are encouraging individuals to “unleash a groundswell of real acts of compassion” on their Archewell website. The site also provides a handful of resources for ways people can get involved, including an option to tutor young women in virtual counseling sessions.

And it seems like the couple is taking their own advice because, according to People, the duo recently signed up to mentor a teenage girl looking to pursue higher education. Oh, and did we mention it was a surprise?

“She had this moment of surprise and excitement when she got on the phone with the Duke and Duchess,” L.A. Works Executive Director Deborah Brutchey told the outlet in an exclusive. “She knew of them, she knew a lot—she had been following Meghan's story quite a bit, so she was very excited that she had the opportunity to speak with them.”

Brutchey also opened up about the effect the surprise meeting had on the young girl. She continued, “It was really significant for her because they saw her potential in a few short minutes, which actually really undid some damage that had been previously caused by a former teacher's doubt," she explained. "It was just amazing how they were able to connect and how their compassion, in just a short conversation, really made an impact and is going to forever inspire her.”

“The conversation that they had was really about how do you overcome challenges in your life? And how do you stay true to your values? Things that are so relatable to young girls but also so public in what the Duke and Duchess have gone through.”

After the session was over, the duke and duchess even sent the young woman a bouquet of sunflowers (after they noticed the flower in the background of her room).

Very sweet, you two.
