While the drama surrounding the Sussexes' decision to step down from their official roles persists, the Duchess continues to live her life and perform her duties.

This week, the mother of one visited the London museum to acquaint herself with emerging storytelling technologies.

Prince Harry's wife was photographed at the "Immersive Storytelling Studio," in London, wearing a £29 organza puff-sleeved Topshop blouse.

Meghan Markle accessorized her ivory Topshop organza sleeve blouse and Roland Mouret chevron skirt with a black Loewe handbag, small gold hoop earrings, and Sophie Lis love pendant. 

The Sussexes' official Instagram account shared pictures from her solo trip with a brief account of the Duchess' itinerary.

At the South Bank theatre, the former American actress interacted with a hologram of jazz singer Nubiya Brandon, which was featured in the National Theatre's exhibition "All Kinds of Limbo." 

The Theatre's artistic director, Rufus Norris, had revealed earlier that the theatre chiefs had not been informed of Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's decision to relocate from England to Canada.

The Duchess and her husband appeared in public for the first time.

Meghan was made a patron early this year, and the Theatre was confident that the Duchess would remain a patron despite her family's move to North America.

Not everyone shared that enthusiasm. Nica Burns, top West End producer, opined in a talk with Daily Mail that Meghan had until Easter to prove if she would remain as the Theatre's patron or not. She said,

'I think we should give Meghan until Easter to be able to say what she thinks is possible with her patronage. If she is not going to be doing any work with The National, then she should step down."

Later that day, the Duchess and her husband, Prince Harry, appeared in public ⁠— a first since their decision to step down as senior royal members.

At the Endeavour Fund Awards held at Mansion House later that evening, the mother of one was radiant in a Victoria Beckham designed fitting bright blue dress. 

The event was organized to celebrate the wounded, injured, and sick in sporting and adventurous challenges. The organizers also had awards for the Sussexes.

The couple's public appearances are not over. Later this week, they are expected to appear at the Mountbatten Music Festival.
