Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Activist Suhani Jalota, who runs Myna Mahila Foundation, attended the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in an elegant sari by brand Raw Mango.

Sanjay Garg, Textile Designer and Founder, Raw Mango said: "We are excited that we were able to represent and create something more than what meets the eyes - the sari is a symbol that is rooted in culture, heritage and history, which speaks to one's individuality & identity, therefore becoming a medium to express oneself." 

#MynaMahilaFoundation Indian ladies looking glamerours in their #sarees for the #royalwedding !

Myna Mahila foundation empowers women to speak about issues they are most afraid to discuss aloud - they encourage and employ women from urban slums in Mumbai to manufacture and sell affordable sanitary pads back into their communities, improving menstrual hygiene, providing stable employment, and building a trusted network. 

Suhani met Meghan in 2016 when the former went to give an acceptance speech at the Glamour College Women of the Year Awards.

Meghan married Britain's Prince Harry at St George's Chapel in Windsor. Among 600 celebrity guests invited to the wedding were internationally acclaimed Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Elton John, Tom Hardy, James Corden, James Blunt and Carey Mulligan among others.
