Prince Harry “crashed the party” Friday as Meghan Markle attended a roundtable discussion on gender equality at Windsor Castle.
Meghan continued her work with One Young World and the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and was due to attend the engagement herself. However, Harry, who drove her to the event in his electric Audi E-Tron, decided to stick around.
The Duchess of Sussex, who donned a Hugo Boss red leather pencil skirt for the occasion, said in her speech, according to the Daily Mail: “In terms of gender equality, which is something I have championed for a long time, I think that conversation can’t happen without men being a part of it.
“So for this reason it made complete sense to let him (Harry) join today so thank you for letting him crash the party.”
The royal was joined by leaders from around the world at Friday’s engagement and talked to people supporting gender equality and inclusion in countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, Iraq, Malawi, and Bangladesh.
Meghan’s latest appearance comes after she attended her first solo engagement since her and Harry’s south Africa royal tour Tuesday: the One Young World summit’s opening ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
