But most importantly, the star opened up about her own experience as an immigrant, saying: "When my parents decided to move to England from Kosovo it was hard. I remember I had to see and witness certain things just so I could fit in, just so the refugee girl can cooperate with the girls in the skipping rope game in the playground (that’s what I used to call it!), but when I was in that park I was free."

She then reminded her followers: "We can’t be justified by the colour of our skin or where we are from, we are one race. The human race." Rita signed off her post lovingly, writing: "Anyway, I love you guys, that’s just my two cents. I hope you smile today. Give kids a place to feel free in. Thank you. Yours forever, Rita."

Fans were quick to praise Rita for her inspiring post, with one writing: "Beautiful caption. Well said." Another added: "Thank you for spreading love and kindness! The world needs more of it."
