Pregnant Meghan Markle makes surprise solo appearance


Details of the outfit worn by the Duchess of Sussex yesterday have emerged - some 24 hours after the surprise solo engagement.

The meeting between the two iconic women was private, but a source confirmed to People that they spoke for a while about women's empowerment - a cause to which they've both dedicated years of their lives.

Obama also congratulated Harry and Meghan on getting engaged past year - with the couple recently spending the anniversary of their engagement apart - and wrote in a tweet: "Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement".

Prince Harry has met the Obamas on a number of occasions.

Meghan first wore the Mackage coat in Nottingham.

Praise for the newest royal was near unanimous, with one member of the congregation saying she had spoken "very clearly" during a powerful performance.

Mohammad Hadi Marashi, deputy governor for security affairs, told state TV that two police officers were killed in the attack. An Iranian ethnic Arab separatist Sunni militant group and Islamic State both claimed responsibility for that attack.

Coincidentally, Michelle had just recently spoken to Good Housekeeping about what advice she would offer Meghan if given the chance.

After the talk, Meghan was taken backstage to meet privately with Michelle where the pair had a private chat together for fifteen minutes.

Professor Laura Hammond, who attended the meeting, described the discussion as "excellent".

During the event, Kate told the invited wives, partners, grandparents and children: "Not only are we grateful for you coming here to join our party, but also for the sacrifices you make on a daily basis on behalf of the nation".

Meghan adds: "Togetherness at its finest", while the crowd chuckle through the awkward conversation. The Duchess had previously made a powerful speech about education during her first royal tour to students at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji in October. "The journey of higher education is an incredible, impactful, and pivotal one", she said.

Michelle continued by highlighting the importance of picking a project you're truly passionate about and dedicating yourself to it.
