It’s back to work for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, apparently. Just three days after their gorgeous royal wedding that captivated millions, the newly anointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex completed their first engagement as a married couple: at a garden party celebrating Prince Charles’ patronages ahead of his 70th birthday.
The event took place at Buckingham Palace, and Prince Harry and Markle looked gorgeous, as per usual. Markle opted for a white and cream-colored dress by British brand Goat with a dramatic peach sunhat by Philip Treacy. Prince Harry kept things simple and classic with a black suit underneath a a gold vest and powder blue tie.
Veteran royals reporter Richard Palmer was on site to capture Markle and Prince Harry making their entrance to the event with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Conrnwall. Check out video footage of that, below:
And here are some candid shots of the royals right before Prince Harry gave his speech.
Prince Harry touched on several topics when he took the podium, including the bombing that happened at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester this time last year. “I’d like for us to take a moment to remember all those affected by all those affected by the tragic events at the Manchester area a year ago,” he said.
Palmer also shared a photo of the entire group to his Twitter account, too:
And now for the up-close shots of Markle’s lewk, because I know you’ve been waiting for it. Here she is alongside Prince Charles and Camilla.
A shot of the group checking out Prince Harry’s speech:
What do you think they’re laughing at? The royal wedding SNL skit, perhaps?
“Ahhh, this is so much better than a 5 A.M. call time for Suits.” – Markle’s thoughts here, in my mind.
We love a car moment.
I need this hat.
And I need to know what they’re laughing at…again!
Besides, of course, this video of Prince Harry getting distracted by a bee during his speech.
Catch me watching these clips on a loop from now until 11 P.M. tonight.
