HRH Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle will celebrate International Women’s Day at Millennium Point as part of their Royal visit to the city.

The Royal couple – who will wed in May – have announced their visit on 8th March to our iconic building in Birmingham’s Eastside to attend “Meet the STEMettes” hosted in partnership with Millennium Point and STEMettes.

CELEBRATING INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN

“Meet the STEMettes” aims to inspire the next generation of young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths in the West Midlands. The event will explore apprenticeships, A-level choices, university degrees, work experience with a panel of seven fantastic women in STEM.

Kensington Palace revealed: "The visit comes on International Women's Day, and the couple will firstly attend a Stemettes event at Millennium Point which aims to inspire the next generation of young women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Millennium Point CEO, Judith Armstrong comments: “It is an honour and privilege to welcome HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, on a day where we celebrate female role models in STEM and inspire the next generation of young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.”

A ROYAL VISIT

This is not the first time Kensington Palace has visited Eastside’s iconic building. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially opened Millennium Point on 2 July 2002.


Judith further comments, “Her Majesty officially opened Millennium Point back in 2002 as a building and organisation which exists to support STEM and education in the West Midlands, as well as mark a turning point in the regeneration of Birmingham’s Eastside. It’s a delight to see the Royal Family continue their ongoing support of what we are trying to accomplish.”
