On Tuesday night, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex was named as one of Ms. Foundation’s 2023 Woman of Vision Awards honorees. 

Joining her at the event were her husband, Prince Harry and mother Doria Ragland. This is the couple’s first public appearance since Prince Harry attended King Charles’ coronation. The event was also a mini-reunion for the Duchess and journalist Gloria Steinem, as Steinem presented her with the reward onstage. 


Markle’s acceptance speech acknowledged Steinem for her inspiration and friendship. They have been friends since 2020 after working together to make calls thanking voter registration organizers.

Ms. Foundation for Women is one of the country’s oldest women’s foundations and focuses on building “women’s collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all.”

Prince Harry and Markle have their own foundation, Archewell.
