Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Heading to New York City

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking another bite out of the Big Apple!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who relocated from the U.K. to Meghan’s home state of California in 2020, are planning another trip to New York City. According to reports, a spokesperson for the United Nations confirmed that the couple will be in New York for the U.N. General Assembly to celebrate Nelson Mandela Day on July 18. Prince Harry, 37, is expected to give an address.

Meghan, 40, appeared at the U.N. Women’s conference on International Women’s Day in 2015. Her mom Doria Ragland was on hand as she gave an inspiring speech on gender equality.

“U.N. Women, as you guys know, has defined the year 2030 as the expiration date for gender inequality,” she said. “And here’s what’s staggering — the studies show that at the current rate, the elimination of gender inequality won’t be possible until 2095. That’s another eighty years from now. And when it comes to women’s political participation and leadership the percentage of female parliamentarians globally has only increased by 11% since 1995. Eleven percent in 20 years? Come on. This has to change. Women make up more than half of the world’s population and potential, so it is neither just nor practical for their voices, for our voices, to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making.”

Members of the royal family, including Harry’s grandparents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip as well as both of his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana, met with Mandela on many occasions before his death in 2013.

During the couple’s tour to Africa in 2019, they met with Graca Machel, Mandela’s widow. Prince Harry and Meghan also visited the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition in London back in July 2018.

Meghan and Prince Harry visited New York City in September 2021, starting with a visit to One World Observatory at the World Trade Center with former Mayor Bill de Blasio, his wife Chirlane McCray, their son Dante de Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochul.

During the trip, they met with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield and Meghan read her children’s book The Bench to second grade students at P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson School in Harlem.

The duo then appeared on stage at Global Citizen Live in Central Park, where they spoke up about the world’s need for COVID-19 vaccine equity.

“Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That’s the point, but that’s not happening,” Meghan said.

Meghan and Harry returned to New York in November, marking Veterans Day in the U.S. and Remembrance Day in the U.K. at the 2021 Salute to Freedom gala at the Intrepid Museum. After hitting the red carpet, Prince Harry, who served in the British army for 10 years, presented the inaugural Intrepid Valor Awards to five service members, veterans and military families living with the invisible wounds of war.

Last month, the couple returned to the U.K. with their two children — Archie Harrison, 3, and Lilibet Diana, 1 — for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. During the trip, they celebrated Lili’s first birthday with a backyard party at their U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

The Duchess of Sussex, and Jessica Yellin on Abortion Rights, the ERA, and Why They Won’t Give Up Hope

On June 26—two days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade—Jessica Yellin, the award-winning journalist and founder of the independent media company News Not Noise, called the two people she knew could put that seismic event into perspective. The first? Gloria Steinem. The second? Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Steinem, the face of American feminism, and Meghan, a vocal advocate for paid leave and fair labor rights for women, have been friends since 2020. After Meghan learned that they were both sheltering in place in Montecito, California, she asked if Steinem wanted to help her make calls thanking voter-registration organizers. Steinem agreed.

That connection soon blossomed into an alliance, and for the past several months, Steinem and Meghan have been formulating a plan to get the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) ratified. (“It would explicitly extend to women the rights granted in the Constitution to men,” Yellin tells Vogue. “The ERA would change the playing field for women’s reproductive rights, women’s workplace rights, and so much more. For decades Steinem has been advocating for its enactment, and now Meghan is joining in.”)

So, when the Supreme Court’s ruling came down, Yellin decided to moderate a conversation between the two advocates about their own reproductive choices, the realities of America pre-Roe and post-Roe, and, most importantly, where the country goes from here. “I entered this conversation feeling disoriented by the new reality—anxious that there is no clear path forward. Opponents of abortion built so much infrastructure over so many years. How can that be answered quickly, and how many lives will be destroyed in the meantime?” Yellin says. “For now, some women will be denied basic life-saving medical care because of a power struggle in a dysfunctional political system. But after this conversation, I was reminded that change starts with simple actions—and deadly setbacks sometimes precede transformational change.”

Read their wide-ranging conversation below.

Meghan Markle Visits Amsterdam Nonprofit Project Fearless

Duchess Meghan brought her most elegant businesswoman style to visit Project Fearless.

The Duchess of Sussex partnered with the Amsterdam-based nonprofit, which works to empower young women and nonbinary students to further their education, be creative, and become the best versions of themselves.

Meghan joined the organization’s first entrepreneurship course as a guest coach to listen to the students’ sustainable business pitches and offer feedback.

She looked chic in a beige blazer, black top, black dress pants, and matching heels. She kept her hair down in loose waves and wore natural makeup and minimal accessories.

“The Duchess’ visit was a brilliant way to celebrate the impact Project Fearless has made over the last three years, introducing the girls to an accessible role model who is making a difference and using her voice,” Project Fearless founder Mérida Miller said.

Meghan has long been an advocate of women’s rights. In 2015, she became a United Nations Women’s Advocate for Women’s Political Participation and Leadership. In 2017, she traveled around India with World Vision to meet girls and women being impacted by the stigmatization of menstrual health. In 2018, she gave a speech about women’s right to education while on a royal tour in Fiji with husband Prince Harry. And in 2019, she wrote empowering messages on bananas to women trying to free themselves of sex work or addiction and spoke on a panel for International Women’s Day at King’s College in London.

In April 2021, the duchess hosted a roundtable discussion with members of Girls Inc. and the National Women’s Law Center that gave young girls a platform to speak about the “breadth of challenges their generation is facing at this moment,” per a statement on Archewell’s website. And this year, to support Women’s History Month, she and Harry offered grants through their Archewell foundation to four leading organizations working to advance gender equity.

Her visit to Project Fearless comes as the nonprofit celebrates its three-year anniversary. “Safe, supportive spaces like Project Fearless allow girls the opportunity to express themselves, build each other up, gain resilience, and tackle new challenges,” she said in a statement.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Share First Birthday Photo of Lilibet

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday with the release of an adorable new photo.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited close friends and family to gather for a “casual, intimate backyard picnic” on Saturday at their Frogmore Cottage home, a spokesperson for the couple shared on Monday.

In the sweet photo, Lili smiles as she plays in the yard of her family’s home. She wears a blue dress and a white lace bow in her red hair — which she inherited from dad Harry!

Close family friend and guest Misan Harriman who attended Lilibet’s party with his wife and children took the “candid, spontaneous photograph that the Duke and Duchess are pleased to share today,” the spokesperson added.

Baker Claire Ptak from East London’s Violet Bakery was tasked with creating a special cake for Lilibet. Ptak also created Meghan and Harry’s wedding cake in 2018.

Harry and Meghan “remain incredibly touched by the countless birthday wishes for their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor,” the couple’s spokesperson said.They were “amazed to learn that people around the world made donations” amounting to over $100K to the World Central Kitchen (WCK) in her honor,” the spokesperson continued, adding that the couple “extended their gratitude to all who have shown support for the organization, which is especially near to their hearts.” WCK is first on the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate and community crisis. They build resilient food systems with locally-led solutions. Most recently, they provided support in Uvalde, TX and Ukraine.

June 3 | Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee 2022 – National Service of Thanksgiving

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out this morning in London to attend the national Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen at St. Paul’s Cathedral with other members of the royal family. Meghan leaned into her royal style and dressed up in all white Dior Haute Couture, pairing a belted coat dress with a chic white hat by Stephen Jones for Dior. She wore her hair up in a bun and had a smoky eye and nude lipstick on for makeup.

Meghan attended Trooping the Colour with Prince Harry yesterday, but the couple did not participate in the carriage procession or balcony flypast viewing due to their status as non-working royal family members. Harry and Meghan stepped back from their senior royal family roles in 2020.

Meghan was photographed in the window of the Major General’s Office in a wide-brimmed Stephen Jones hat and navy off-the-shoulder dress. She and Harry watched the parade with other members of the royal family there.

Meghan and Harry have kept their exact schedule for Platinum Jubilee events private. They arrived in London with Lili and Archie on Wednesday.

Meghan Markle Makes Surprise Visit to Memorial for School Shooting Victims in Texas

Meghan Markle visited Uvalde, Texas, on Thursday to honor the victims of the elementary school shooting that took the lives of 19 young students and two teachers.

Meghan, who lives in California with her husband Prince Harry and their two young children, was spotted laying white flowers with a purple ribbon at a memorial outside Uvalde County Courthouse. She then knelt down and hung her head at the cross for 10-year-old victim Uziyah Garcia.

The Duchess of Sussex crossed her arms as she walked around looking at the memorials to the victims. She was dressed casually in jeans, sneakers and a baseball cap.

Meghan took the trip in a personal capacity as a mother, to offer her condolences and support in person to a community experiencing unimaginable grief, according to a spokesperson for the Duchess of Sussex.

On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman wearing body armor crashed his car in a ditch near the school, then, after getting past law enforcement, entered a classroom and locked himself inside, killing 21 people.

In 2019, Meghan and Harry, who live in Montecito, Calif., with their son Archie and daughter Lilibet, paid tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, where 50 people died and dozens more were injured after a gunman opened fire on two mosques.

They left flowers outside New Zealand House in London along with a note. Meghan wrote: “Our deepest condolences. We are with you.” Harry signed his name with “Arohanui,” which is Maori for “best wishes.”

Through the couple’s Archewell Foundation, which they launched in 2020, Harry and Meghan have supported efforts to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and focused their attention on the Black Lives Matter movement and fighting for racial justice.

Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, are expected to travel to the U.K. with their children next week to take part in Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Which Platinum Jubilee Event Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Attend with the Royal Family?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won’t join the royal family on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping the Colour, but they will reunite with Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royals for another Platinum Jubilee event.

The couple, who will travel from their California home to the U.K. with their two children for the weekend of festivities marking the monarch’s 70 years on the throne, is expected to attend the service of thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, June 3, according to The Telegraph.

Many members of the royal family are expected to attend the event, including Prince Andrew, the Queen’s son who is no longer a working royal following his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Some of the Queen’s older great-grandchildren, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, may also attend the Friday ceremony, although Meghan and Harry’s two children — Archie Harrison, 3, and Lilibet Diana, who will turn 1 on June 4 — are believed to be too young for the outing.

News that Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, would travel to the U.K. for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations came shortly after Queen Elizabeth, 96, announced that only working members of the royal family will appear for the traditional Buckingham Palace balcony appearance as part of Trooping the Colour, the monarch’s annual public birthday celebration.

“After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd of June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen,” a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

This change in tradition does not include Meghan and Harry, who stepped back as senior members of the royal family in 2020, and Prince Andrew following his recent lawsuits. However, it’s possible that Meghan and Prince Harry will appear at Trooping the Colour in another capacity, such as taking part in a carriage ride as part of the parade.

It’s likely that Meghan and Prince Harry will attend other events throughout the weekend as well.

On Saturday, June 4, members of the royal family will attend the Derby at Epsom, followed by the Platinum Party at the Palace in the evening, with performances by Queen + Adam Lambert, Diana Ross and more.

The four-day celebration will wrap with the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday, June 5, featuring a parade down The Mall to the Palace in London.

May 22 | Polo tournament

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for a star-studded polo tournament in Santa Barbara yesterday. Harry recently joined polo team Los Padres. The team took home the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy at yesterday’s event, which was open to the public and attracted stars including Rebel Wilson and Meghan’s actress BFF Abigail Spencer. Meghan was on hand to present the prize.

Embracing the beautiful sunny weather, Meghan opted for a pair of high-waisted, loose-fitting, tailored shorts by New York label Khaite, a brand she has worn on a number of occasions, including recently during the Invictus Games, where she teamed one of the label’s bodysuits with a pair of black trousers.
The duchess added a chunky black Khaite belt to her polo-match look – and paired them with her trusty black Aquazzura court shoes and a long-sleeved polka-dot blouse. She finished the look off with a pair of statement sunglasses and a wide-brimmed black straw hat.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Will Attend Queen’s Jubilee in U.K.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are heading to the U.K. next month — with son Archie Harrison and daughter Lilibet Diana!

“Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honored to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children,” according to a spokesperson for the couple.

The trip will be the first time Lili, who was born in California last year, will visit her dad’s homeland. She’ll likely even celebrate her first birthday on June 4 during the trip.

The news comes shortly after Queen Elizabeth announced that only working members of the royal family will appear for the traditional Buckingham Palace balcony appearance as part of Trooping the Colour, the monarch’s annual public birthday celebration.

Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, will not be part of the appearance. Harry’s uncle Prince Andrew, who is no longer a working royal following his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, will also not be included on the balcony.

“After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd of June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen,” a Buckingham Palace spokesman says.

The family members who will appear on the palace balcony during Trooping the Colour will be the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. The Queen’s cousins, the Duke of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra will also be in attendance.

William and Kate’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are expected to be there along with Edward and Sophie’s kids, Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn. Princess Anne’s husband Sir Tim Laurence may also appear as he’s a frequent supporter of his wife during her public duties.

The birthday parade, which will take place on June 2, kicks off a long weekend of commemorations for the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. The long weekend ends with a special parade through central London on Sunday, June 5.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may appear at another event, such as the Service of Thanksgiving on June 3. Traditionally, members of the extended family have attended the Thanksgiving Service at the Jubilees — most recently of 10 and 20 years ago.

Harry and his wife Meghan stopped in the U.K. for a visit with the monarch at Windsor Castle in April as the couple made their way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

“It was great, it was really nice to see her. To see her in an element of privacy was nice,” Harry said.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Arrive at Invictus Games Opening Ceremony Hand-in-Hand

After two years of delays, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are finally kicking off the Invictus Games in The Hague!

Although the Invictus Games hosted in the Netherlands was originally scheduled for 2020, the Paralympic-style event was delayed until 2021 and then again to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were beaming at the opening ceremony on Saturday night.

For their arrival on the yellow carpet, Prince Harry wore a grey suit sans ties for the event, while Meghan sported an off-the-shoulder white top and black trousers.

Prince Harry and Meghan attended a welcome reception for athletes on Friday night before watching the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge on Saturday ahead of the opening ceremony. The couple even got in on the action, with Prince Harry joining a team to take on a driving obstacle course.

Later, Meghan and Harry jumped in mini kiddie cars, taking the passenger seats as young drivers took the wheel around a course.

Meghan previously joined Prince Harry at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto (her adopted hometown, where she lived while starring on Suits), where they made their official public debut as a couple. She was by his side again in 2018 for the Sydney Games, shortly after the couple announced they were expecting their first child, son Archie Harrison.

April 15 – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Attend First Event of the Invictus Games

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in the Netherlands and getting ready for the Invictus Games.

On Friday, the couple made their first appearance at a welcome reception for teams as well as their family and friends in The Hague. Meghan sported an all white ensemble featuring wide-leg trousers with a matching oversized blazer, while Harry opted for a suit sans tie.

This evening, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also attend a second reception for dignitaries hosted by the City of The Hague and Dutch Ministry of Defence.

On their way to the Invictus Games, Meghan and Prince Harry made a stop in the U.K. to visit with Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

Duchess Meghan Will Join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands This Weekend

As founder, Prince Harry considers the Invictus Games to be one of, if not the most, important event on his working calendar. And this week, he will make his trip to the sporting event in the Netherlands even more special by bringing along his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes confirms to BAZAAR.com that Meghan will join Harry in The Hague this weekend, marking their first joint visit to Europe since stepping back from their working royal roles in 2020.

The duchess is expected to spend the first few days of the games alongside the Duke of Sussex, who will remain in the country for the duration of the international competition, which runs from April 16 to 22.

This is the fifth Invictus Games and will see teams from 20 different countries—including South Korea, Estonia, Canada, Australia, Poland, Iraq, and the United States—compete in events such as athletics, archery, wheelchair basketball, cycling, powerlifting, swimming, sitting volleyball, and indoor rowing. The Netherlands was originally due to host the games in 2020, but the event had to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The games—one of the largest sporting events, akin to the Paralympics—were launched by Harry in 2014 and provide a chance for sick or injured military personnel and veterans to compete.

Harry and Meghan made their first public appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017, where they were seen walking hand in hand. And in 2018, the pair watched the games in Sydney, Australia.

Last week, Harry surprised Team UK athletes at their final training camp before they travel this week to The Hague. The duke made a video call to members, including 33-year-old team captain and British Royal Air Force veteran Rachel Williamson, wishing them luck.

“For a lot of you, you’ve already, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve already won gold by just getting to this point,” he told them via Zoom. “The fact that you are sitting there now wearing that strip and you are able to wear the Union Jack on your arm again, that means so much to every single one of you.”

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex Sets Up First Spotify Podcast

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex is to host a podcast series about the common stereotypes that have historically generalized women as the first project from her and Prince Harry’s Archewell Audio after striking a multi-million dollar deal with Spotify.

The audio streaming service has set Archetypes to launch later this year.

The series will see Meghan Markle investigate the labels that try to hold women back. She will speak with historians and experts to uncover the origin of these stereotypes and have uncensored conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape narratives.

It comes after Spotify was quick to dampen tabloid speculation that it was growing frustrated by the fact that only one episode of a podcast has so far emerged from the royal deal since it was announced in December 2020.

“This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us . . . but where do these stereotypes come from? And how do they keep showing up and defining our lives,” Markle said in the teaser. “This is Archetypes — the podcast where we dissect, explore, and subvert the labels that try to hold women back. I’ll have conversations with women who know all too well how these typecasts shape our narratives. And I’ll talk to historians to understand how we even got here in the first place.”

Archetypes will be produced by Archewell Audio in partnership with Gimlet Media for Spotify. Markle, Ben Browning, Archewell’s Head of Content, and Rebecca Sananes, Archewell’s Head of Audio, will serve as executive producers alongside Dawn Ostroff, Courtney Holt, and Julie McNamara for Spotify. The teaser was produced in partnership with Little Everywhere, a podcast production house led by Jane Marie.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Receive President’s Award at NAACP Image Awards

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will receive the President’s Award at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards, the NAACP announced Thursday.

The honor, recognizing notable achievement and valued public service, will be handed out at the ceremony airing live on Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. on BET. Previous honorees include Muhammad Ali, Colin Powell, Soledad O’Brien, Condoleezza Rice, LeBron James, Rihanna and Jay-Z.

“We’re thrilled to present this award to Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who together have heeded the call to social justice and have joined the struggle for equity both in the U.S. and around the world,” said NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson in a statement. “Not only do they continue to lead by example, The Duke and Duchess have also decided to inspire the next generation of activists through the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, ensuring the support and recognition of generations of civil rights leaders to come.”

The NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award is a newly established annual award that is supported by the couple’s global nonprofit, Archewell Foundation, and administered by the NAACP. The award will honor individuals who are not only leaders of transformational change in progressing civil and human rights, but who also seek advancements in the digital rights space and work to expand equity.

This year’s recipient is author and scholar Safiya Noble, Ph.D., an internet studies scholar and professor of Gender Studies and African American Studies at UCLA. Additionally, she is co-founder and faculty director of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2), which works with the Archewell Foundation.

“It’s a true honor to be recognized by President Derrick Johnson and the NAACP, whose efforts to propel racial justice and civil rights are as vital today as they were nearly 115 years ago,” said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in a statement. “We’re proud to support the NAACP’s work and to also partner with the organization on the newly created annual NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, which will be bestowed to Dr. Safiya Noble as part of the 53rd NAACP Image Awards.”
