The Duchess of Sussex left Michael Johnson, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County, “blown away” after ringing him for a second time. He revealed the phone call in a post on Twitter describing Meghan as the “real deal”.

It comes after the pair previously spoke in June and Mr Johnson put Meghan in touch with 18-year-old Althea Bernstein, who was the victim of an alleged hate crime.

Mr Johnson said: “I am blown away by Meghan Markle!! She called me again today while my wife and kids were in the car and said, ‘Hey Michael this is Meghan I am just checking in.’

“We talked for about 10 minutes about a lot of things including Althea and her well being.

“We also talked about some plans she supports but I can’t share yet… so stay tuned.

“I love how poised and down to earth she is, her passion, her commitment to children and how she is following up with genuine love and support.

“Meghan you are amazing and if you ever wanted to work for Boys & Girls Clubs in Wisconsin we would hire you in a minute.”

In a Twitter post last month, Mr Johnson announced his first chat with Meghan and Prince Harry.

He said: “On the phone with Prince Harry and Meghan Markel the Duchess of Sussex.

“Prince Harry shared that young people voices matter and Meghan has agreed to talk with girls in Wisconsin and we will be scheduling that soon.

“Thank you for caring!”

Mr Johnson told Wisconsin news outlet Channel 3000 that he put Meghan in contact with Ms Bernstein.

He said: “Her and Meghan talked about the importance of self care and allowing herself to heal.

“And she applauded her for the way that she responded and pretty much said ‘Hey Michael, give me her cellphone number. I want to stay in touch.

“‘And let me know when you want me to come back and talk to people in Wisconsin’.”

Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, have been keeping busy during the coronavirus lockdown.

The couple are living in Los Angeles with their one-year-old son Archie after quitting royal duties earlier this year.

The Sussexes volunteered with youth organisation Homebody Industries in June.

Meghan and Harry made pastries and prepared food parcels for the Feed Hope programme.

The programme provides food to those in need amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And in April they delivered meals for charity Project Angel Food.
