Meghan Markle took to the stage this evening at the Manchester One Young World summit wearing a £2.3k suit as she told an audience "it is very nice to be back in the UK".

Meghan wore a vivid red high-necked sleek trouser suit by Valentino.

The blouse cost £1,100 and the trousers £1,200.

Meghan’s speech on gender equality is her first in-person address in the UK since quitting as a senior working royal amid the Megxit crisis more than two years ago.

Meghan is a counsellor for the organisation, and the summit brings together more than 2,000 young leaders from more than 190 countries.

The couple were also meeting a group of summit delegates doing “outstanding work on gender equality”, One Young World said.

The trip comes just days after Meghan’s controversial interview with The Cut magazine, in which she said it takes “a lot of effort” to forgive and hinted that she can “say anything”.

She said that “just by existing” she and Harry were “upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy” before they stepped down as senior working royals in 2020.

The couple travelled by train from London to Manchester, and flew commercial from the US to the UK.

Their next public event will take place in Germany tomorrow for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year To Go event.

They are then expected to return to the UK for the WellChild Awards in London, where Harry will deliver a speech on Thursday.
