What happens when two fierce, passionate feminists come together for a greater good? Great, great things - that's what.
Well, at least that was certainly the case when Duchess Meghan met feminist writer and activist Gloria Steinhem - at her brand new home in the United States, no less.
The influential pair have filmed a Q&A clip ahead of Women's Equality Day in the United States with the pair engaging in a relaxed, uplifting conversation encouraging women to vote ahead of the US election.
Their words struck an undeniable chord as they hosted the important conversation from the backyard of Meghan's residence - with a few extra details that made for some seriously glorious viewing.
"Welcome home, I'm so glad that you're home," Gloria begins.
You can hear the genuinity in Meghan's voice as she says: "Me too, for so many reasons."

The pair continue their conversation in what looks to be a sunny backyard, with Meghan telling Gloria: "People forget how hard people like you fought for us."
The female activist tells Meghan, "If you don't vote, you don't exist, it is the only place where we're all equal".

In a quick recess between their conversation, two other important guests come on-screen for a moment - the Duchess' two dogs, her beloved beagle Guy, as well as the much-talked about though never-before seen black lab, Pula.
The furry pair run onto the screen with the Duchess smiling and petting them as they excitedly approach her.
Looking chic as always in a pair of loose fitting stripy trousers, a white tee, and, at one point, a stylist wide brimmed hat, Meghan was in her ultimate element.

It was revealed back in August 2018 that Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry had adopted a new pup - believed at the time to be a black lab.
Little more was known about him until earlier this year when it was revealed in the new biography Finding Freedom that the pair had named him Pula.
The name translates to "rain" in Setswana - and it's also the currency in Botswana, a place close to the hearts of both royals.

The Duchess has taken part in several important promotional activities encouraging people to vote ahead of the US election.
Last week, she joined the panel of empowering voices via the organisation When We All Vote, which hosted a virtual "couch party" for US citizens to watch and listen to.
In the video, she shared a portion of her new home in the background, located in California's Santa Barbara.

During the event, she told watchers: "When I think about voting and why this is so exceptionally important for all of us, I would frame it as: we vote to honour those who came before us and protect those who will come after us, because that's what community is all about.
"That's specifically what this election is all about.
"We're only 75 days away from election day, that is so very close and yet there is so much work to be done in that amount of time, because we all know what's at stake this year."
