Now that the royal wedding is over, the world has moved on to the next big thing: following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s newlywed life. On Monday, just two days after their royal nuptials, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were photographed for the first time in public since they got married. The photo in question was first shared by the UK’s Daily Mirror, which caught them “beaming” as they drove back to Kensington Palace.
In the photo, they’re both wearing large sunglasses and are dressed much more casually than the tux and Stella McCartney gown they changed into for the reception (which was the last time most of the world got to see them).
Take a look:
You’ll notice Meghan’s also wearing her signature messy bun—and are those the same Cartier earrings she wore at the wedding? To be fair, if we had those earrings we’d never take them off either. (Ditto with that stunning tiara.) Here’s a closer look for comparison:
Despite the newlyweds’ laid-back looks, they are not, in fact, on their way to Namibia for their honeymoon. As Kensington Palace announced earlier this month, they will not be jetting off immediately to their post-wedding vacation. Instead, they’ll be staying around the Palace for another week or so, catching up on royal engagements.
It’s not clear what those might be (the Royal Diary has yet to publish any upcoming events for the Duke or Duchess of Sussex), but whatever’s in store, we hope they’re well-rested after the wild, pizza-filled festivities at Frogmore House.
