Meghan Markle {:rel=nofollow}enjoyed her first public appearance since ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, in which she admitted some of the pressures she's faced since marrying into the royal family. Last night, Meghan, attended the One Young World Summit Opening Ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall, an event which was described as a 'global forum for young leaders' and brought together 2,000 people from more than 190 countries.

A video of Meghan walking onto the stage at the event was later shared on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, where they shared that it was 'her third time in attendance as a counsellor for these extraordinary young leaders from around the world, and her first time attending as a member of The Royal Family and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust.'

She looked stunning in a £29 purple dress, which she last wore when she was pregnant with Archie. The Aritzia dress - which initially cost £81 but has now been reduced to £29 - was first seen on Meghan while she was pregnant with Archie in January. (The dress from the Canadian brand has since sold out in every size, but you can still get hold of the black version.) She styled the look with a pair of navy £540 Manolo Blahnik heeled pumps.

In the documentary which was aired on Sunday, viewers heard how Meghan was warned by a British friend not to marry Harry, due to the UK's tabloid culture. The mother-of-one admitted, ‘When I first met my now husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy. But my British friends said to me: "I’m sure he’s great. But you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life."
