London: After finding international fame since being shot by the Taliban last year, education campaigner Malala Yousafzai has been meeting eminent personalities. After meeting US President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama last week, Malala on Friday met with another icon, Britain`s Queen Elizabeth II.
Malala was invited to the Buckingham Palace by the Queen and her husband Prince Philip where they met and chatted for a while.
Accompanied by her father, she presented Queen with a copy of her memoir which is titled ‘I am Malala’.
After the meeting the young activist hoped that the two could work together to provide education to all the children not only in Pakistan but in Britain too.
Malala is based in Britain since she was rushed there for major surgery after she was shot by the Taliban for promoting girls` education in Pakistan.
She has also won Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought but missed out on being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Malala’s memoir which recounts her horror and experience will be released on October 8.
