Meghan Markle Won Over Crowds With Her First Ever Royal Speech

Insiders at the palace are telling us that Meghan thinks it's a huge honor and Prince Harry is 'thrilled!'

Meghan Markle didn't have the smoothest experience at her first awards ceremony appearance after a mix-up in notes.

Clearly, Meghan's acting chops came in handy here as she stayed calm and collected under pressure - even as the audience grumbled around her.

At the time, a 19-year-old Diana was attending an event in aid of the Royal Opera House.

However, her first moment to take on an official royal didn't come without its mishaps and this awkward moment lasted almost a minute.

"I think with Meghan she's clearly comfortable on stage", explained Judi. She presented the award to Daniel Claricoates, who served in Afghanistan and is recovering from PTSD. As for Harry, he looked dapper in a blue suit and dark tie.

While a lot of awards ceremonies call for formal attire, Meghan kept her look simple and a chic, stepping out in an Alexander McQueen black suit, a crisp white button-down shirt and black heels.

After Markle thanked the crowd saying "I'm truly privileged to be here", she announced the second prize of the evening.

This is the fourth official royal engagement Meghan has attended with her fiance Prince Harry.

Despite the fact that his PTSD "is probably the toughest we've seen", according to colleagues, he has climbed to the summits of the highest mountains in Africa and Antarctica, Kilimanjaro and Vinson.

It's Heigl's first big TV role since she left Grey's Anatomy in 2010 amid rumours she was "difficult" to work with. Watch the clip below for more details on her edgy look!

Patrick J. Adams, who plays Markle's love interest Mike Ross, is also leaving the hit show.
