Meghan Markle to appear at first event since skipping Coronation tonight
Meghan Markle has been confirmed to attend her first official public event since missing the King’s Coronation tonight.
The Duchess of Sussex will be appearing at the glitzy Ms Foundation’s gala in New York in order to receive the Women Of Vision award.
She will be presented with the trophy by legendary political activist and close friend, Gloria Steinem.
Joining her at the event will be Black Voters Matter co-founder LaTosha Brown.
It has not been confirmed if Prince Harry will be with her or if she’ll attend the event alone.

The Ms Foundation is a Brooklyn-based organization that works to bring attention to the real challenges facing women, especially women of colour and low-income women who are living in poverty.
Teresa C. Younger, Ms. Foundation president and CEO, said in a statement that the honorees will be celebrated for “their many accomplishments and tireless work on behalf of gender and racial equity across the country and the world.”
In the case of Meghan, she is being acknowledged for “her global advocacy to empower and advocate on behalf of women and girls.”
Tonight’s illustrious event will be held at the Ziegfield Ballroom in Manhattan.
The gala is Meghan’s first major appearance since skipping the coronation of King Charles III in London on May 6.
The former Suits actress opted to remain at home with her and Harry’s two children, Archie and Lilibet, in order to celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday.
Harry attended the event alone, saw his father get crowned at Westminster Abbey, before getting a car back to the airport to return home and join his family in the celebrations.
Since then she has only been seen twice in public since – once on a hike, and another grabbing dinner with celebrity pals including Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden.
