Duchess Meghan (41) gave her first major speech in Great Britain since Megxit around two years ago on Monday evening. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the One Young World Summit in Manchester, she said it was "nice" to be "back in the UK".
Meghan and her husband Prince Harry (37) recently started their European trip, which includes a number of appointments. Manchester was the first port of call for the two. The Queen's grandson accompanied his sweetheart to the event on Monday and kept smiling at her as she spoke in front of around 2,000 people. In her speech, Meghan gushed about how "thrilled" she was that Harry was able to accompany her to the event this year, as the organization was an important part of her life before their relationship. It was a "privilege" for Meghan to set foot on "British soil" again with Harry.
That quote was also posted on the One Young World Summit Twitter account with a photo of Meghan.
Meghan and Harry, who have lived in Montecito, California with their two children Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) since their royal retirement, landed in Great Britain last Saturday for their trip to Europe. During their stay in Europe, the two are reportedly staying at their home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage. According to "DailyMail" the two are said to have traveled by train from London to Manchester on Monday.
The two have a tight schedule: after Manchester they are going to Germany. In Düsseldorf they will make an appointment for the Invictus Games 2023 on Tuesday. Then it's back to the United Kingdom: The WellChild Awards will take place in London on Thursday. It is the first time Harry and Meghan have visited the royal home since Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
