BACK TO SLIDE

News broke on Friday morning that the royal had boarded a last-minute commercial flight from London to support Williams. Her weekend trip marks the first away from four-month-old baby Archie and her first return to New York City since her baby shower in February. 

The 38-year-old royal dressed down for the occasion, opting for a $118 denim shirtdress from J.Crew (it's still in stock!). She paired the look with a gray cardigan, sunglasses and a simple blowout. 

Next up for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is a 10-day tour of Africa, which will kick off on Sept. 23. Baby Archie will remain in South Africa with Meghan and a nanny while Harry will continue engagements in Botswana, Angola, and Malawi.

For more on the royal's outing this weekend, watch the video above.
