·1 min read

Duchess Meghan made her first appearance since her bombshell interview with Oprah this past weekend.

In a pre-taped video that aired during Global Citizen's Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World event, she wore a floral print red and pink shirtdress by Carolina Herrera accompanied by a "Woman Power Charm" necklace by Awe.

The 14K gold necklace combines the female Venus symbol with a protesting fist. It also features a purple amethyst stone at the center -- symbolizing protection as well as abundance and enlightenment.

Additionally, 20% of each necklace purchase is being donated to help women in need.

Meghan's necklace symbolized her speech on women's empowerment. She spoke about being "thrilled" to be welcoming a daughter with Prince Harry.

"When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and the support to lead us forward," she said.

She continued, "Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable and compassionate tomorrow."

The royal couple's baby girl is due to arrive this summer.
