Meghan Markle is standing with the women of Iran.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, was included in a photo posted by Archewell president Mandana Dayani at a [email protected] event, and the royal wore a tee with a special message amid the protests in Iran following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini for breaking hijab laws.

Markle was pictured with Dayani and Archewell’s executive vice president of global communications Ashley Hansen, both of whom are Iranian, in a black T-shirt from Etsy seller K&R World Design (from $28) that reads, “Women, Life, Freedom” written in Farsi.

The lettering on her shirt has a significant meaning, as women and girls in Iran have been chanting the words while removing — and in some cases setting fire to — their hijabs and cutting off their hair.

Pairing the casual tee with black Valentino trousers ($1,890), the mom of two beamed at the camera with her Archewell colleagues as she attended the event at Spotify’s headquarters in Los Angeles.

Dayani wrote how she was “so grateful to work with incredible women like Meghan and my fellow Iranian colleague and friend, Ashley Momtaheni, as we continue to highlight the bravery and courage of the women and young girls on the frontlines of one of the most important feminist movements of our lives.”

She went on to share that Markle gave a speech at the event discussing “the revolution being led by women and young girls in Iran, the courage and bravery they show every day, and their leadership and advocacy of basic human rights.”
