SOME people have been throwing shade on the fact that the Duchess of Sussex chose to celebrate her 40th birthday by announcing a new initiative. 

The idea is to help women back into work after the coronavirus pandemic. 

We all need a mentor and a helping hand, and even those who say it is 'woke' and 'publicity-seeking' surely have to acknowledge that this is a positive initiative

In the short film she released last week, Meghan asked Hollywood star Melissa McCarthy to help in launching her “40×40” campaign, along with several other famous, LA-based friends. 

The duchess – who was looking wonderful and seen for the first time since the birth of Lilibet two months ago – said she wants people around the world to commit to giving 40 minutes of their time to mentor women going back to work. 

This is a great cause, because over two million women in the US and tens of millions around the world lost their jobs during the pandemic.

Among those who have promised 40 minutes of their time to support a woman in their community are singer Adele, poet Amanda Gorman, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and fashion designer Stella McCartney – all of whom are friends of Meghan.

Whatever you think of Meghan, this is such a positive way to mark turning 40 – by inviting women to help other women back into the workplace. 

We all need a mentor and a helping hand, and even those who say it is “woke” and “publicity seeking” surely have to acknowledge that this is a positive initiative.
