The Countess also reconnected with Virginia Khunguni, founder of the Malawi-based 'Girls Arise for Change', who Her Royal Highness met while visiting the country in 2017, to learn about the project's work with girls who have escaped early marriages, sexual exploitation and child labour.

Caitlin and Virginia, who are both Queen's Young Leaders, were joined by Prince's Trust Ambassador, broadcaster and campaigner June Sarpong, co-founder of the 'Women: Inspiration and Enterprise Alliance' - an international conference supporting female excellence and empowerment, which provides a platform for women leaders to network.

During the call, the women discussed the importance of supporting one another to share skills and how better outcomes are achieved when women are equally represented.
