Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first appearance since their controversial ‘Megxit’ from the Royal Family. The couple attended the Endeavour Fund Awards in London for wounded service personnel. Harry previously served as the Captain of Wales. The event is set to be one of their last engagements before ending their work as members of the Royal Family.
The couple is aiming to carve out a progressive new role in North America, where they aim to finance themselves while continuing their philanthropic efforts. A crowd of about 50 people, standing behind barriers, braved the rain under umbrellas to catch a glimpse of the duke and duchess. There were cheers and applause as they walked by, but also one loud boo.
The couple were there to honour the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. All eyes were on Meghan, 38, who has not been seen in this country since she and Harry made the dramatic announcement that they were quitting public life in early January, much to the distress of the Queen.
She presented the Celebrating Excellence Award during the event and said: ‘It’s very nice to be back. Its the third year I’ve had the incredible fortune of joining my husband here. It’s just the most inspiring space.
‘When we were watching the [nomination] videos all the way in Canada we had the same moment of “how are you going to choose?” Well, we’ve done our best. The evening event was the couple’s first joint official appearance since announcing their decision to step down as senior royals, which takes effect on March 31.
