The Duke and Duchess’ trip to New York will be the couple’s first public event since they relinquished their roles as senior royals. The couple will appear at the global TV event Global Citizen Live on Saturday, a 24-hour live event featuring stars and starlets in Central Park.
The Duchess was asked by a reporter during her visit to New York, “Madame Duchess Are you enjoying your time in New York?”
Meghan responded by saying, “It’s wonderful to be back, thank you.”
The Sussex Squad Podcast tweeted her admiration for the new nickname, saying, “Look, from now on it’s Madame Duchess with #MeghanMarkle for me.
“This is why I love this city!
Twitter user @RAnnie2021 tweeted, “Who really likes the title Madame Duchess Meghan besides me?
“I do not like the photographer who named her that, but I do like the name.”
The new nickname was given to the Duchess at the top of the city’s tallest building, One World Trade Center.
Kyle Nazza, part of National Press in America, tweeted an update regarding Meghan and Harry‘s visit to the country.
“Mayor de Blasio shares his admiration, saying they are fantastic guests and the work they do is so important to our whole country and our whole world.”
