James noted that Meghan has often used her voice to protest specific issues and causes important to her, but the Duchess also knows how to convey her messages non-verbally.

But here Meghan shows she’s just as adept at making a non-verbal message that endorses the words written on her t-shirt,” James said. “It should bring it in line with women-led protests and could even be an introduction to Meghan’s more active appearances or speaking for this cause.”
