She may have just gone on her much deserved maternity leave, but don't expect Duchess Meghan to be slowing down for long.
Due to give birth to her first child with Prince Harry any week now, the 37-year-old has reportedly taken her maternity leave, but it seems, if everything is as it should be after Baby Sussex's birth, the Duchess will be going back to work as early as the British Autumn (Spring in New Zealand).
According to a Palace insider who spoke to Vanity Fair's royal correspondent Katie Nicoll, it has been revealed Meghan will be making her first public appearance in October with Prince Harry for the annual One Young World summit in London.
The global forum supports 10,000 young leaders from around the world.
"Harry is keen to support Meghan in developing her own role and the opportunity to partner with a cause so close to her heart is an ideal stepping stone," the source revealed to Vanity Fair.
"All being well with the baby, the timing is perfect for her to expand her Commonwealth work through this new One Young World partnership with the Queen's Commonwealth Trust."
Meghan has already worked closely with the organisation since 2014. According to Vanity Fair, the former actress worked as a counselor and addressed the delegates at both the 2014 and 2016 summits.
And after being announced as the newly appointed vice-president of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust on International Women's Day, it makes sense that the Duchess of Sussex would be making an early return to attend the forum.
Meghan's last public appearance before taking maternity leave was early this month for the Commonwealth Day service and celebrations, before making an unannounced visit to New Zealand House last Tuesday with Prince Harry to sign the book of condolence following the Christchurch terror attacks on March 15.
And now the countdown is on for the birth of Baby Sussex, who is due in late April or early May.
