MEGHAN Markle was all smiles as she appeared on a solo Hollywood night out just hours after bombshell claims about the royals.
The Duchess of Sussex, 42, even hinted at a comeback as she arrived at last night's Variety's Power of Women event in LA.
She stunned in a camel, one-shoulder, floor-length dress – which was paired with a black clutch and heels.
The Duchess posed for photographers ahead of the event, and mouthed "thank you" after compliments were shouted at her.
When Entertainment Tonight asked Meghan if it was "Mum's night out", the mother-of-two laughed and said: "Exactly."
Speaking to reporters, the Duchess said he was in the process of making some "exciting" plans.

Variety asked what was now "driving the things you put out in the business".
Meghan said: "Things that make people feel… I was going to say things that make people feel good, but it's more than that.
"Things that make people feel something, right? And a sense of community.
"But we have so many exciting things on the slate, I can't wait until we can announce them. I'm just really proud of what we're creating."

Her glam appearance comes after she and Prince Harry's pal Omid Scobie lobbed bombs at their relationship with the Firm.
The writer made the shock new claims in his latest book Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival.
In it, Scobie wrote that Meghan was kept away from the Queen's bedside as she took her final breaths.
Harry was also said to be kept in the dark about his grandmother's health until he "received a call from an unknown number" – which turned out to be from his father.
And it's claimed Charles told Harry to travel to Scotland without Meghan, to which he agreed after it was confirmed Kate would also not be in attendance.
Scobie wrote: "Charles had cited 'protocol', but the reality was that Kate chose to stay back to pick up the children from their first day at a new school.
"'They just didn’t want Meghan there,' said a former Palace aide. Meghan, a friend added, 'could sense she wasn’t wanted.'"
It was also claimed Prince William ignored his brother's messages as the Queen died.
Scobie claimed Harry sent text messages to William asking how he planned on travelling to Scotland – with the intentions of them going together.
But he was said to have heard nothing back – despite there being seats on the private plane used to travel to the Queen's bedside.
The author claims William "clearly didn't want to see his brother" and Harry was left having to find his own way to Balmoral.
Scobie writes: "With no further information from other family members or Palace aides, the Sussexes and their team had to operate in the dark.
"Harry was informed that William had already secured a flight with his uncles Andrew and Edward (and Edward’s wife, Sophie), but he couldn’t get in touch with anyone about joining that flight.
We have so many exciting things on the slate, I can't wait until we can announce them.
"'It was upsetting to witness,' said a source close to the Sussexes. '[Harry] was completely by himself on this.'"
Royal insiders yesterday fumed over the claims.
An insider told the Mirror: “It appears no matter what happens behind closed doors, even in a time of such pain and grief, that where the Royal Family are concerned it will one day emerge.
"Nothing is off limits with William and Kate appearing to be this author’s number one target. It only takes a few months for the knives to come out again and the wounds to be opened up.”
Scobie also wrote of William: “He feels he has lost Harry and doesn’t want to know this version of him.”
An initial serialisation of the book was published in People magazine yesterday afternoon.
In the hours that followed, the latest and final season of The Crown hit screens – causing fresh chaos.
The series notably features the event that shook the British monarchy to its core — the death of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997.
The new season will reenact the last few months of Princess Diana's troubled life while exploring Prince Charles at the time as a man who wants her replaced in the public's opinion with Camilla, played by Olivia Williams.
Experts were quick to spot the inconsistencies – where the lines of truth appeared to blur with reality.
