Meghan Markle may be making a grand debut at the 2020 Met Gala—says a source— but fans shouldn’t expect to see her doting husband, Prince Harry escorting her up the paparazzi-filled stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“The Met Gala is for the Who’s Who of showbusiness. Naturally Meghan was one of the first names on the guest list, and Edward’s team are excited that the two will go together,” a source told The Sun.

The source goes on to share that the Duchess of Sussex will dress accordingly to the event’s theme "About Time: Fashion and Duration"—that was partly inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Orlando film, where it’s main character changes sex from man to woman—and is expected to rock a “glamorous androgynous” look.

If it is indeed true, this will make the first big Hollywood appearance for the mother-of-one since the couple publically announced their decision to step back from their “senior” royal duties in March.
