Harry & Meghan Have Priceless Reactions after Man Proposes to Girlfriend in Front of Them at Endeavour Fund Awards
While attending the Endeavour Fund Awards, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had the sweetest response when one of the award recipients proposed to his girlfriend right in front of them.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry looked regal in blue as they arrived at the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, attending the ceremony for the third year in a row.
AN EVENTFUL FIRST JOINT OUTING
It's their first joint outing since relocating to Canada, and the royal couple looked cheerful as they got ready for an evening that celebrates injured veterans who took part in remarkable sporting events and their achievements.
The first award for the evening, Recognising Achievement, went to veteran Danny Holland for his work with the Forces' Motorsport Charity.

The veteran became emotional during his acceptance speech before asking his girlfriend to join him on the stage. With Meghan and Prince Harry in the front row, they had an unencumbered view of what happened next.
As Danny dropped down on one knee to propose, Meghan clasped her hands together with joy as she glanced over at Prince Harry.
The royal pair, along with everyone else in the audience, smiled broadly as Meghan put her hands on Prince Harry's knee in anticipation of the girlfriend's answer.

The moment she said yes, Meghan's hands went to her chest and held them together in excitement, happy for the newly engaged couple as they walked off the stage.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Both Meghan and Prince Harry presented awards during the evening, which is one of their final list of engagements before their royal exit officially kicks in on March 31.
Monday will see the royal couple attend their last engagement as senior members of the royal family when they join the Queen, Kate Middleton, and Prince William for the Commonwealth Service held in Westminster Abbey.
WHERE WILL THEY LIVE?
Returning to Canada next week, it is reportedly unlikely that it will be their only residence, apart from Frogmore cottage, which will remain their UK home.

According to reports, Meghan and Prince Harry "love being in Canada," but due to Meghan's extensive support system in Los Angeles, they are scouting for property there as well.
They will reportedly spend time in Meghan's hometown this summer, during which they look at future possibilities as a source told PEOPLE that they are "likely to have houses in both places."

Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • “The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all - the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges - as if being shot or blown up wasn’t enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury.” • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what’s possible! #EndeavorFundAwards
However, during lunch with Queen Elizabeth on March 1, she reportedly made it clear to Prince Harry during a "heart to heart" that he can always call his family home.
The Queen doesn't want Prince Harry to feel "estranged" for them and reportedly said that she wants her grandson to be "happy."
