Megan Markle paid tribute to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by wearing a statement shirt and face mask in honor of the feminist icon during this week’s podcast recording.
The Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, appeared on the Teenager Therapy podcast yesterday, discussing the stigma surrounding mental health and “how we can all contribute to a healthier world: physically, mentally, emotionally and holistically.”
Chosen for a low-key look for the occasion, Megan wore a £ 16 gray shirt embellished with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s initials, with a mask bearing a quote from the feminist icon: “When There Are Nine”.
Last month, the Duchess described Ginsburg as a “judge of courage” in a statement issued shortly after her death.

The Duchess has appeared on the podcast, opting for a comfy outfit, wearing a simple gray T-shirt with RBG written in big blue letters on the front.
She paired the statement T-shirt with a black face mask that had the words “When There Are Nine” in white letters.
This phrase is taken from what is often considered one of Ginsburg’s most famous quote, in which she said, “ He sometimes asks me when there will be enough [women on the Supreme Court] And I would say that when there are nine, people are shocked. But there were nine men, and no one asked any questions about that.
The outfit choice comes weeks after the death of 87-year-old Ginsburg last month after a battle with pancreatic cancer, giving President Donald Trump a chance to expand the conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court at a time of deep divisions in America, as the presidential election looms on the horizon.
The Duchess of Sussex chose a comfy, £ 16 outing gray shirt with the word “Supreme Justice” embossed on the front side.
Meanwhile, Megan paired the shirt with a black face mask adorned with a GInsburg quote at the front.
Ginsburg, the second woman judge ever to be appointed to the Supreme Court, is a widely recognized feminist icon.
Before her appointment to the Supreme Court, Ginsburg filed in six cases for gender equality.
Last month, Megan praised the feminist symbol in a statement released to the media shortly after her death.
The Duchess said: “ With an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be known as an intelligent woman, brave justice and a person of profound conviction.

She has been a true inspiration to me since I was a girl. Honor her, remember her, act for her.
Meghan, who currently lives in Los Angeles with Prince Harry and their son Archie, after the couple stepped down from their royals in March and moved to North America, has become increasingly politically vocal in the past few months.
This comes after a well-known agent claimed that Megan can enter politics and have every right to run for the post of President of the United States.
Talking to Sunday TelegrapLast month, Jonathan Shalit said he had “never heard” that the Duchess was discussing politics, but added that it “does not go beyond the scope of possibilities.”
She is American by birth and has every right to run for president. Ronald Reagan was a B-List actor who wound up in the White House. Never say never, he said.

The perception of spouses in America differs from that of the United Kingdom. The UK has a love and hate relationship with the Sussex family, but it is different in the US.
He continued, “ I think Megan is very ambitious, but in this country this is sometimes considered an unpleasant character trait. Yet it has already achieved a lot.
The Duchess honors the late justice as she appeared in the final episode of The Teens Treatment with Prince Harry.
The episode began yesterday and saw the couple speak with hosts Gail, Kayla, and Thomas about their own experiences in mental health.
Megan said the impact of the pandemic has increasingly pushed people toward the internet, which she claimed has opened a “security hole” and a place for a “disconnect”.
