The mother-of-two received the 2023 Women of Vision Award in tribute to her advocacy work for women.
Addressing the audience, the Duchess said: “It's just never too late to start. You can be the visionary of your own life.
"You can charter a path in which what you repeat in your daily acts of service, in kindness, in advocacy, in grace and in fairness, that those become the very things that are recognised by the next wave of women, both young and old, who will also choose this moment to join the movement and make our vision for an equitable world reality."
The actress-turned-royal also paid tribute to the Ms Foundation for Women organisation.

She continued: "I am a woman who remains inspired and driven by this organisation.
"It allowed me to recognise that part of my greater value and purpose in life was to advocate for those who felt unheard, to stand up to injustice, and to not be afraid of saying what is true and what is just and what is right."
Prince Harry accompanied his wife to the event in the Big Apple.
The couple were also recently pictured entering a Sushi Bar restaurant in Santa Barbara with Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuk.
