Meghan Markle showed off her “solo power” at a glitzy Hollywood event, without Prince Harry by her side. The Duchess was the star of the show at Variety magazine’s Power of Women gala in Los Angeles.
She looked stunning in a long beige dress and had all eyes on her as she owned the red carpet.
After posing for photos, Meghan said she was “thrilled” to be back in the entertainment world and hinted at “so many exciting things” she and Harry are planning.

Body language expert Judi James analysed Meghan’s solo appearance for The Mirror.
She said the Duchess showed “confidence and resilience”, even without her husband and kids with her. Judi added: “Meghan’s red carpet body language here and her deceptively simple styling suggest maturity, confidence and resilience.
“Her chin is raised and her eyes hit the camera with a knowing look rather than her signature expression of youthful excitement.”
“She looks on top of her game posing alone too. Her body positions are well chosen to suggest solo power in what looks very much like a hint that she’s back in the show business she loves.”
Judi added that although Meghan might have left the entertainment world behind when she married Harry and became a royal, “this subtle impression of a return (she even refers to a ‘meeting of entertainment and philanthropy’) makes it look as though if she does take acting roles she will be coming back as an A-list star this time around”.
Concluding her analysis, Judi added: “When she is interviewed there is a placing of her fingertips to her neck to enhance this status look, along with a beatific smile and a closing of the eyes as she accepts the interviewer’s compliments.”
