    Duchess Meghan - Official Engagements 2020

    NOTE:
    As the Sussexes are stepping down from being senior royals, we are going to have to reassess how we handle things, and if we will even continue with this list (especially if things are not announced in advance or reported on the Court Circular). 

    For now, we have decided to continue what we have done in the past, listing things as they are announced/happen. But our count of official engagements will only include things listed on the Court Circular. Things on the Court Circular will be marked (CC)

    Meghan's current count is 0 Official Engagements for 2020.

    (Possible) -  Past annual events. Obviously, with the Sussexes announcement in January, there is a lot of uncertainty about what the rest of 2020 will look like.
