Research by the Malala Fund suggests 20million more secondary-age girls may never return to class following the crisis.

The video will be released online on Sunday to mark International Day Of The Girl.

Malala, now 23, was just 15 when shot in the head by a Taliban gunman after campaigning for girls to be educated in her native Pakistan.

Meanwhile, a fake “Meghan for President” website has been set up featuring images of the Duchess with mottos including: “A brighter tomorrow begins today.”

The former senior working royal has been vocal about encouraging people to vote in the US.

A source close to the couple said: "It's obviously fake.

"I would encourage people not to give it more attention than it deserves – especially as it's collecting people's email addresses and encouraging people to spoil ballots."

Bookmakers have already been offering odds of 50/1 for Meghan to become the US president in four years' time.
