Meghan Markle to appear at ‘Powerful Women’ summit where 1 ticket costs £1,300

Meghan Markle is set to take part in a virtual summit this week, where she will discuss "courageous leadership" and share how she learned to "lead on a global stage".

However, ticket prices for the Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Virtual Summit are a staggering £1341.54 or $1750.

The exclusive event has limited tickets and invited guests only, who must be willing to pay the hefty registration fee.

The former Suits star will be interviewed by the publication's associate editor, Emma Hinchliffe, according to the Fortune agenda.

The Duchess of Sussex will share her thoughts on leadership and "leading with your values", writes The Express.

"How do you lead with your values? We are joined by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, who shares how she’s learned to, in her words, chase her convictions with action," the blurb for the 15-minute event reads.

"The Duchess will tell our Next Gen community how she leads on the global stage."

But royal fans are baffled by her latest move.

One person tweeted: "How does she lead on a global scale? What does that even mean… and $1750".

A second user said: "What action? Photo ops? Merchandising? What values? 14 bathrooms for 3 people, a nanny, and a housekeeper?"

A third fumed: "Leading with values?? On a global level no less?? Seriously?"

The event is the latest in a long line of summit appearances by Meghan over the past six months.

The Duchess had a keynote speaker role at the Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit just two weeks ago.

Meghan and Prince Harry have become increasingly outspoken regarding a range of issues since stepping down from their roles as senior royals, sparking backlash from royal fans.

They recently commented about voting in the countdown to the US Election 2020.

The pair faced backlash amid claims of political interference after the Duke of Sussex urged US voters to "reject hate speech".

He said: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity."

The Duchess also urged Americans to vote in the "most important election of our lifetime".

Piers Morgan spoke out against the political comments the pair posted in an online video.

The GMB host condemned Harry for his remarks, tweeting: "Prince Harry poking his woke nose into the US election & effectively telling Americans to vote against President Trump is completely unacceptable behaviour for a member of the Royal Family."

A source close to Harry insisted the duke was not referring to US President Donald Trump nor any other individual when he made the remarks.
