The Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry were in New York on Monday as the Duke delivered a keynote speech on Nelson Nelson Mandela International Day at the United Nations. However, following the Prince’s UN performance, the couple explored the Big Apple separately and even met up with friends.
Meghan, who wore navy blue shorts and a white shirt, even reportedly headed for lunch with feminist activist Gloria Steinem.
The Duchess was snapped holding hands with Ms Steinem as the pair left Crosby Street Hotel in Soho.
Meghan also took a photo with a fan after helping the 88-year-old activist into her car.
Instagram user @kathylynn904 could barely contain her excitement as she posted the selfie on social media.

However, it was not just a fan of Ms Markle who was left thanking the Duchess.

“That’s what activism is. It’s about how we show up.
“I always look at things with the undercurrent of hope.

“You can sit there and be complacent and watch it, or you can say, ‘What can I do to get us to the other side of this?'”
