Following which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be free to lead their lives their way. As per the latest report, the former "Suits" star has chosen to appear at this year's star-studded Met Gala for her first non-royal engagement after quitting the British royal family.

According to The Sun, the royal mother received an invite to Hollywood's biggest fashion events that is organised annually and attended by the A-listers of showbusiness who choose to dress in the most fashionable way. She has been invited alongside British Vogue Editor Edward Enninful.
