MEGHAN MARKLE APPEALED TO FANS TO UPLOAD HER BIRTHDAY POEM – BUT ONLY 200 PEOPLE HAVE SO FAR
The Duchess of Sussex released a glitzy comedy video to mark her 40th birthday – and in it launched a new initiative called 40×40.
It sees the duchess ask A-listers including Adele and Stella McCartney, as well as members of the public, to donate their time to to “help women reentering the workforce”.
And in a post on her Archewell website she asked for one birthday gift from her fans – for them to share a readymade Instagram post with the hashtags #40×40 and #CompassionInAction.
The artwork for the posts features a poem reading: “For women who give everything, we give our time. Are you in?”
And the website even gave a suggested caption for people to use which says: “To celebrate The Duchess of Sussex’s 40th birthday, I am devoting 40 minutes of mentorship or service to a cause I care about.
“Please join me in donating your time. Together, we can contribute to a global wave of compassion and positive change.”
However, The Sun Online analysed Instagram posts in the 24 hours after the video’s release and found just 217 public posts sharing the acrostic poem designed by Meghan using the 40×40 hashtag.
