“We know it’s not easy for you guys to be here, so thank you very much.”
Meanwhile, Meghan admitted she was left in tears by some of the stories told by her parents when they first met.

Meghan, 42, was spotted in a glamorous strapless white trouser suit as she arrived at the Hudson Yards venue for the summit, where the couple will discuss the dangers of social media.
“You can hear these stories over and over and over, and it will still have the same emotional impact because it’s just so devastating.”
Meghan went on to share her fears for her children, who are growing up in an age where social media plays such a big role in everyone’s lives.
“As parents, even though our kids are really young, they’re two-and-a-half and four-and-a-half… but social media isn’t going away,” she continued.

“But I will say, I feel lucky that our kids are at an age, again, young enough, so that’s not in our immediate future, but I also feel scared about how it’s continuing to change.
And this will be before us. As they say, “Being a parent, the days are long, but the years are short.” So it worries me, but it also gives me a lot of hope and a lot of energy from the progress we’ve made in the last year.’
Another video taken inside the event, which was posted on Twitter, shows Meghan hugging some of the speakers as they left the stage after addressing the gathered crowd.

For the occasion, the pair appeared to have taken pretty strict steps to ensure their safety – with a marked NYPD escort escorting their fleet of SUVs to the venue at Hudson Yards.
Questions still remain over Harry and Meghan’s account of the car chase, which a statement from the couple’s spokesman described as “near catastrophic”.
The spokesman said the couple, as well as Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, were the victims of a ‘relentless pursuit lasting over two hours’ at the hands of ‘very aggressive paparazzi’.

However, the New York police later told NBC that they did not believe the chase was ‘close to catastrophic’, instead describing it as ‘a bit of a chaotic scene.’
Julian Phillips, New York’s deputy public information commissioner, also revealed that the NYPD ‘assisted’ the couple’s private security team.
Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Eric Adams expressed sympathy – describing the paparazzi’s actions as ‘reckless’ and ‘irresponsible’ – but said he would find it ‘hard to believe’ there was a two-hour high-speed chase high.
For the event, Harry and Meghan apparently took every precaution, arriving at Hudson Yards in a fleet of locked vehicles, which were pulled directly into an underground garage, where they were quickly surrounded by several security guards.
