The whole ceremony has apparently been rescheduled so the royals can make it

Meghan Markle is set to take home a prestigious award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, reports suggest, in recognition of her widespread charity work.

Speaking to The Sun, an unnamed source said the Duchess of Sussex, 41, is rumoured to scoop “one of the top award of the evening” at the event at London’s Tate Modern on November 16.

The source said: “She already has a close relationship with GQ due to her friendship with Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief Edward Enninful which is also owned by Conde Nast. Edward is very much seen as a friend rather than a business acquaintance.”

They even claimed that the awards, which normally take place in September, were moved to specifically accommodate the royal couple, who were on a tour of Europe visiting charities when the ceremony was initially scheduled.

The couple have shown their passion for charity work since they got together. On their wedding day, they selected seven organisations which “represent[ed] a range of issues that they are passionate about”, including the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA), Crisis, Surfers Against Sewage and The Wilderness Foundation UK.

And after announcing their exit from the Royal Family, the couple launched their own non-profit organisation, Archewell, through which they donate to various charities.

The award rumours come after a royal expert suggested Meghan may finally be ready to consider returning to the UK and will feel “validated” by the warm public reception she received in the days after the Queen died.

Explaining his beliefs on YouTube, expert Neil Sean said Meghan was “ready and willing” to meet the public as the nation mourned the loss of the Queen, despite being “terrified about how the public might perceive her”.

But the public’s reaction, which included a teenager hugging the Duchess at Windsor Castle, will have helped those fears be “pushed away very quickly,” the expert added.

Meanwhile, regarding the couple’s treatment in the US, a royal commentator claimed that Harry and Meghan are being “frozen out” of Hollywood, “one red carpet event at a time”, and that they lack the charm needed to A-list celebrities.
