Meghan Markle is reportedly set to attend the Met Gala after stepping back from life as a senior royal.
The annual, star-studded celebration is due to take place on May 4 this year. The theme is About Time: Fashion and Duration, with those in attendance asked to “explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate past, present and future”. Virginia Woolf will serve as the ‘ghost narrator’ of the exhibition, according to The Met.
the Duchess of Sussex has been invited alongside British Vogue editor Edward Enninful.
The former actress grew close to Edward last year when she famously guest-edited the September issue of the magazine.
A source said: “The Met Gala is for the Who’s Who of showbusiness.”
“Naturally Meghan was one of the first names on the guest list, and Edward’s team are excited that the two will go together.”
“Meghan is keen to step out occasionally without Harry so that she can establish herself once more in Hollywood.”
Attending the Met Gala on May 4th will mark Meghan’s return to Hollywood – just one month after she officially quits her role as a senior member of the Royal family alongside Prince Harry on March 31st, which will mark the start of their transition period.
