Meghan Markle sparked a lot of outrage across social media after it was revealed that anyone who wanted to attend Meghan's latest summit would have to pay $1,750 (£1341.54) per ticket. Meghan, who will be taking part in the Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Virtual Summit this week, left social media users feeling upset and angry at being charged an exorbitant amount should they wish to watch the virtual summit, Express reports.

During the online conference, Meghan will be discussing "courageous leadership" and speak about how she had learned to "lead on a global stage". The only problem is that the mother of one's latest online appearance will cost a bomb to watch. The tickets are limited to exclusive guests only and the guests must be willing to fork out the hefty fee. While it is invite-only, the website has a section where you can apply for an invitation or nominate someone else, The Sun states. "The $US1,750 price tag allows ticket holders access to two days’ worth of events, including appearances from Chelsea Clinton, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, and actress Yara Shahidi," the website reveals.

It is reported that the Duchess of Sussex will be interviewed by Fortune's associate editor Emma Hinchliffe. A small excerpt for the 15-minute event reveals, "How do you lead with your values? We are joined by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, who shares how she’s learned to, in her words, chase her convictions with action." "The Duchess will tell our Next Gen community how she leads on the global stage." The ticket prices have caused quite a stir across social media with many users pointing out that it was way too overpriced. One such user shared, "The royal family is really sitting here letting her fleece and play them out in front of the whole world. Wow! I am really starting to lose respect smh."

Another outraged social media pointed out, "Just remember this woman was a two job actress. Who would listen to anything she says if she hadn’t married Harry." Yet another user chimed in, "MEGHAN IS TALKING ABOUT LEADERSHIP? Is this her field of study? Because even if, she doesn't seem to have a lot of life experience or work to even start talking about it! So who on earth thought "let us ask Meghan to explain us something about Leadership". MSMedia sucks."



 

 



 

 



 

 

Yet another social media user who echoed similar sentiments had commented and shared, "Really milking that title. She knew it was the only way she could be vocal and for anyone to listen to her." An outraged Twitter user added, "Here we go another event, for Meghan to moan about her life or tell us what we are not doing right! I would like to know how many are actually interested in what she has to say?"



 

 



 

 

We had earlier reported that recently Prince Harry and Meghan joined Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai from their $14 million Santa Barbara home for a video that was shared on the Oxford graduate's social media accounts in celebration of International Day of the Girl. During the event, Harry and Meghan discussed the importance of a girl's right to a fair education and addressed how the Covid-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on young women's access to education.
