Meghan Markle Is Attending the Met Gala This Year

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was an independent woman long before she stepped into the Britsh Royal Family and shook things up. Though she did her best to abide by the rules and traditions of royal life, as a career woman with her own dreams and aspirations, she found the firm very confining.

Now that the duchess and Prince Harry have decided to step away from the royal family with Megxit — the duchess is regaining a great deal of her freedom and the ability to navigate her own career.

In September 2019 — Meghan delighted everyone when she guest edited British Vogue. Now, it appears that she will be attending the biggest night in fashion when the 2020 Met Gala dazzles New York City in May.

Meghan Markle has several secret meetings lined up in the U.K.

The Duchess of Sussex is already trying to determine what her post-royal life is going to look like. Since she’s only been a senior member of the royal family for just over two years, the duchess has some idea of what her new post-Megxit life will look like, and she’s already begun preparing.

In addition to attending several high profile events during her last weeks as a working royal — the Duchess of Sussex also as other things up her sleeve. An insider told BAZAAR.com, “Meghan will be conducting something private and patronage-related meetings during her time in London.”

The Duchess of Sussex wants to return to her acting roots

Before getting engaged to Prince Harry in November 2017 — the duchess has a starring role on the hit USA drama series, Suits. Now, post-Megxit it appears that she is looking to return to her roots.

She has begun outreach,” a source tells Us Weekly. “It can be a manager or an agent, but she’s reaching out to people to find someone to represent her for future professional projects. “[Meghan] has no plans to do another show like Suits, but Harry’s been encouraging her to do more voice-over work, writing, producing and directing in her free time.”

The duchess has already lined up a voiceover gig with Disney, and there are rumors that she would even cossinder an ensemble role in a massive Marvel film, but we’re just going to have to wait and see.
