The Duchess of Sussex has said she is “thrilled” to be back in Hollywood, after appearing on the red carpet at a glitzy industry event.
Former Suits actress Meghan appeared at the Variety Power of Women event in Los Angeles on Thursday evening, which highlights the accomplishments of women in the industry.
She said she was “really proud” of the work she had done with her and her husband’s company, Archewell Productions, which includes the documentary made about their life.
Teasing upcoming projects with Prince Harry, the duchess told Variety she wants to create “things that make people feel” as well as create “a sense of community”.
“We have so many exciting things on the slate,” she said.
“I can’t wait until we can announce them, but I’m just really proud of what we’re creating. My husband is loving it too, which is really fun.”
She was joined on the red carpet by the likes of Barbie star Margot Robbie, British actress Carey Mulligan and singer Billie Eilish.
She said: “I think the more we support each other it just amplifies the work, amplifies our community and I’m just thrilled to be back in it and to be able to sit in this room and be in such good company tonight.”
Her appearance at the event comes hours after the launch of the final series of The Crown, which details the death of her mother-in-law, Diana, Princess Of Wales.
Also at the event was Emily Blunt, who was handed the Power Of Women alumni award for her “dedication to helping children overcome stuttering through education resources”.

October: Meghan talks young people and mental health
During her speech, Blunt said: “It is a disability that lives very often in the shadows alongside its great friends – fear, shame, and humiliation.
“A stutter is like an imposer that is living in your body that doesn’t pay rent, ever.”
Robbie was given the producer of the year gong, alongside husband Tom Ackerley and fellow producer Josey McNamara, for their firm LuckyChap Entertainment.
Robbie said on the red carpet: “I don’t have much of a voice right now but we really believe (in) people with original ideas and original voices, people like Emerald (Fennell) with Saltburn and Greta (Gerwig) with Barbie.
“They are both such visionary directors with such original voices and they had such an original take on the story they wanted to tell and committing to that on the side of it coming out can seem scary, but when you do, amazing things happen.”
Also honoured was Lily Gladstone, who is currently appearing in the latest Martin Scorsese film, Killers Of The Flower Moon.
She won her award for advocating for indigenous women’s rights, with her co-star Leonardo DiCaprio saying: “I fervently hope we’re entering a new era in which actors like Lily, who embody this authenticity and undeniable truth in their own storytelling, take centre stage.
“Because Lily’s not just an actor, she’s also an activist.”
