The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Attend Their First Royal Engagement As A Married Couple

Before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married on May 19, 2018, they announced that they’d be putting off their honeymoon for a little while. Because of their delayed honeymoon, they were able to make appearances at royal events before leaving to travel.

Today, May 22 (just three days after their wedding!), the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their first appearance since tying the knot. Harry and Meghan attended The Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration. The party, which took place at the Buckingham Palace Gardens, was to celebrate Prince Charles’ (Harry’s father’s) 70th birthday.


Of course, all eyes were on the newlyweds as they stepped out for the first time since their wedding. Harry wore a classic suit, while Meghan wore a beautiful (and modest) dress.

She classed up her outfit with a stunning hat and some simple, sparkly jewelry.


During the celebration, Prince Harry made a speech about his father. At some point, Meghan shared a laugh with her in-laws.

The Duke and Duchess also took some time during the celebration to shake hands and meet other people attending the garden party.

For her first appearance as an official part of the royal family, Meghan seemed to handle it like a pro. Not only did she look beautiful, she also seemed like she was having a great time.

Some people pointed out that the “newlywed glow” hadn’t worn off, as Harry and Meghan couldn’t seem to keep their hands off each other at the celebration.

Of course, they didn’t break royal protocol or anything, and mostly just held hands (they didn’t even kiss).

Although it’s only been a few days, Meghan looks like she’s fitting right in with her new royal family. If you think the Duke and Duchess looked great at their first event as a married couple, don’t forget to share this article with your friends!
