Meghan looked stunning at the event last night, wearing a recycled Aritzia purple dress she sported during her pregnancy with Archie.
She was a guest honour at the opening ceremony of the event, which brings together 2,000 young people from more than 190 countries.

She said: "You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy. And I think I really tried to adopt the British sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I’ve tried but I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging.
