Meghan Markle was just crowned with another honor.

The Duchess of Sussex will be honored at the 48th annual Gracie Awards—which recognizes television and radio shows created by women—on May 23 at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire in Los Angeles, the organization announced March 30. Meghan is a digital media winner, being awarded for her podcast Archetypes.

This year's theme is storytelling, celebrating the winners who "not only inform, inspire, and captivate audiences, but also enrich our collective comprehension of the world," per the foundation's press release.

Along with Meghan, the 48th annual winners include actress Christina Applegate (Dead to me), actress Amanda Seyfried (The Dropout), filmmaker Ava DuVernay (Queen Sugar) and singer Faith Hill (1883).

Also walking away victorious for outstanding programming are shows Abbott Elementary (comedy), The Drew Barrymore Show (Talk Show) and Ziwe (Entertainment).

The president of the alliance for Women in Media Foundation, Becky Brooks explained that this year's recipients all have one thing in common: They "exemplify Gracie Allen's spirit through their exceptional talent, innovation, and vision."

She added, "We eagerly anticipate celebrating their outstanding accomplishments."

This accolade for Archetypes is one of many for the Duchess of Sussex, whose honor comes a little over a year after she accepted a People's Choice Award for her podcast. 


"Thank you to all the supporters and fans of Archetypes who voted for us for this special People's Choice Award," Meghan wrote in a statement in December 2022 on the Archewell Organization's website. "I loved digging my hands into the process, sitting up late at night in bed, working on the writing and creative. And I loved digging deep into meaningful conversation with my diverse and inspiring guests, laughing and learning with them, and with each of you listening."

And if her gracious thank you is any indication of how the Meghan and Harry star will approach her Gracie Award win, we're sure she will be just as honored to be recognized this year.

Needless to say, Meghan's royal status has extended across the pond.
