Months after the royal couple announced their decision of stepping back from being senior members of the British Royal Family, Meghan Markle returned to London for what could be her final royal events.
The Duchess of Sussex made her first official appearance in the United Kingdom on Thursday evening following their controversial royal exit announcement. Her husband Prince Harry joined her in the 2020 Endeavor Fund Awards at the Mansion House. The event was in celebration of the achievements of service personnel who got injured, wounded, or sick.
Prince Harry looked dashing in his classic suit and tie in navy blue while Meghan looked absolutely eye-catching in her matching bright blue fitted dress by Victoria Beckham. Before the event, the couple was spotted having their private lunch at The Goring.
In addition to attending this special event, Prince Harry and Meghan also joined Prince William and Kate Middleton in the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey to be held on Commonwealth Day.
For those who are following the lives of the royals and know about them, Prince Harry and Meghan announced their decisions earlier this year to step away from their royal duties.
According to their statement, they spent months reflecting and having internal discussions regarding the matter. The couple said they have chosen to make the transition this year to take on a progressive new role. They intended to step back as senior members of the British Royal Family and with this they intend to be financially independent. However, they assured that they will continue to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.- Advertisement -
Last February, a spokesperson released some key information regarding the transition of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex out of their royal duties. For example, they will officially drop the “royal” title from their branding. In addition, the Royal Family respect and understand their wish to live more independently as a family specifically by getting rid of the “public interest” justification due to the intrusion of media into the couple’s lives.
In addition, the spokesperson mentioned that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will always be a valued part of Her Majesty’s family.
