The Sun: Meghan Markle May Attend Star-Studded Met Gala in May Following Royal Exit
Meghan Markle is presumed to make her first arrival in Hollywood at the Met Gala, which holds in New York City, since her unexpected exit from the Royal family.
The Met Gala has reportedly sent an invitation to Meghan Markle and she will attend the event together with Vogue editor Edward Enninful, on May 4, according to The Sun.
Meghan is expected to sport a "glamorous androgynous" look based on this year's Met Gala's theme that focuses on Virginia Woolfe's Orlando, which sees its main character change sex.
Met Gala is a yearly charity event for the "Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art," and it sees celebrities adopt bold, glamorous outfits that break the internet every year.
This year;s theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration" and is partly inspired by Virginia Woolfe, as stated earlier, and the theories of the French philosopher, Henri Bergson.
Andrew Boltonspoke, the curator of this year's event, spoke about its theme:
"Fashion is persistently connected to time. It not only reflects and represents the spirit of the times, but it also changes and improves with time."

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Sources, however, claimed that the Duchess might not be attending the event with Prince Harry as she looks to restore her figure as a Hollywood celebrity.
Word of Meghan's invitation comes a month after she and Prince Harry announced that they were officially putting a halt to their royal obligations.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.
