Meghan Markle Tours Museum During First Solo Royal Engagement

The Duchess of Sussex was guided through the new Oceania exhibit at London's Royal Academy of Arts.

Meghan Markle is taking a bigger step into the public eye, and what better way to do it than with an afternoon at the museum?

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out on her first solo engagement as a royal with a private tour of London’s Royal Academy of Arts.

Guides introduced Markle to the new Oceania exhibit, which features art, ornaments and religious objects from the Asia-Pacific region, including places like Australia, New Zealand, Polynesia and Hawaii, where England once held colonies.

Wearing a black Givenchy dress and matching clutch, her tour of the museum was just another demonstration that she isn’t shy about being in the public eye.

Last week, Markle participated in a live cooking demonstration in support of "Together: Our Community Cookbook," her recently published charity cookbook that is already a bestseller, according to People.
