One photo shared a rare glimpse into Meghan Markle’s world

Misan Harriman regularly adds candid pictures of Meghan Markle and her family to his Instagram feed. On Feb. 21, his latest upload captured a rare look into Meghan’s world.

Harriman shared the photo while Meghan was still a working member of the royal family. Thus, in 2019, she appeared alongside Prince Harry at the opening ceremony of One Young World at the Royal Albert Hall.

The photo, shot of Meghan’s back, captures her as she readies to take the stage at the opening ceremony of One Young World. Harriman wrote in the caption, “I call this image THE ARRIVAL. The Duchess Of Sussex about to take the stage at the opening ceremony of One Young World at Royal Albert Hall.” He hashtagged the image “light and shadows.”

Meghan Markle’s ‘arrival’ came one year after she married Prince Harry

Meghan Markle’s “arrival” at the One Young World event came one year after she married Prince Harry. The couple wed on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, England.

Harriman photographed Meghan standing atop a stairwell before being announced at the event. Consequently, she arrived in her capacity as Vice President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

All cameras were pointed toward the former Suits star as she readied to descend the stairs. In the foreground was the stage of the Royal Albert Hall, the event’s backdrop, which honored young leaders.

Harriman’s followers shared their thoughts regarding the image. They agreed the photo captured a rare moment.

“Love your continued support of her. I think her friends should now be free to share photos of her. No more embargo,” claimed one follower.

“An absolutely fabulous shot of the beautiful Duchess of Sussex Meghan,” penned a second fan. “Love her or not, this is a stunning shot, Misan Harriman, and let’s not forget the cause,” a third Instagram user deduced.
