On Thursday, Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan together visited at an official engagement for the first time since January when they stepped away from their royal duties. The royal couple were seen arriving at Mansion House in London for the annual Endeavour Fund Awards. The award ceremony will honour wounded or injured military personnel who use sports or athletes to aid recovery.
Harry and Meghan decided to step back as senior members of the royal family at the end of the month. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the couple tweeted. They also revealed that they are planning to balance their time between the UK and North America.
In the event, Prince Harry chose to wear a blue suit and tie, while Meghan looked stunning wearing a simple turquoise dress with cap sleeves by Victoria Beckham, paired with navy heels.
Before arriving at the awards, the couple was captured leaving The Goring, a hotel near Buckingham Palace. They are presently in the UK to fulfil their remaining royal duties before finally stepping back at the end of the month.
However, as of now, they plan to stay at Frogmore Cottage as their official residence in the UK despite stepping back from their duties. “Frogmore Cottage will continue to be the property of Her Majesty the Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to use Frogmore Cottage – with the permission of Her Majesty The Queen – as their official residence as they continue to support the Monarchy. So that their family will always have a place to call home in the United Kingdom,” a website read.
Next, the duke and duchess are expected to make an appearance at the Mountbatten Music Festival on 7 March. Just after the day, on March, 8 Meghan will take part in a special event arranged on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
