The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly been invited to the star-studded Met Gala this year, a source has claimed.
Former Suits actress Meghan, 38, is thought to be attending the New York event alongside Vogue editor Edward Enninful on May 4, according to The Sun.
It is supposedly set to be the mother-of-one’s first Hollywood appearance after officially stepping back from her royal duties on March 31.
The source said Meghan is expected to adopt a ‘glamorous androgynous’ look for the prestigious fashion bash, with this year’s theme based on Virginia Woolfe’s Orlando – which sees its main character change sex.

They added: ‘The Met Gala is for the Who’s Who of showbusiness. Naturally Meghan was one of the first names on the guest list, and Edward’s team are excited that the two will go together.
‘Meghan is keen to step out occasionally without Harry so that she can establish herself once more in Hollywood.’
MailOnline has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
The celebrity-filled event has played host to many of the mother-of-one’s Hollywood pals in the past, including Serena Williams, Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé.
