On Thursday, March 5, 2020, Duchess Meghan was seen in the UK with her husband Prince Harry. Meghan came back to London to perform some royal duties alongside her husband.


Duchess Meghan joined Prince Harry for their first official joint outing since she returned to the UK. The couple was in the country to perform their last royal engagements.

On March 31, 2020, Meghan and Harry are expected to officially step down from their senior royal roles. This week, the pair were seen smiling as they attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards in London.

Attending an award ceremony together

The event honors veterans, servicemen, and women who have achieved extraordinary milestones in their recovery from injury. Over the past year, the honorees took part in sporting and adventure challenges.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex first attended the event together in 2018. Arriving at the event in rainy weather, Meghan wore a fitted teal dress by Victoria Beckham.


Meghan’s first spotting on Thursday

She added BB pumps by Manolo Blahnik to her look and styled her hair into a low ponytail. The cute couple entered the venue arm-in-arm.


According to “The Sun” Meghan was spotted before the event they attended that evening. She was seen outside The Goring Hotel in London.


What Meghan wore for lunch

For that occasion, she wore a camel-colored wrap coat and black strappy stilettos. Harry was seen leaving before her wearing a navy blue suit and white shirt.


Attending Commonwealth Day

The couple was at the hotel, which is located near Buckingham Palace, for a private lunch. On Monday, the pair is set to join Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William, and Duchess Kate at a service to mark Commonwealth Day in London.


Stepping down as senior royals

Part of Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down included them no longer holding an office at Buckingham Palace. Instead, the pair will be represented by their UK charity foundation team.


Establishing a new NPO

According to their spokesperson, they will split their time between the UK and North America. The Duke and Duchess were said to be attending meetings to establish a new non-profit organization.

Despite stepping down, the couple will still work with the “Commonwealth, community, youth empowerment and mental health, collectively.”
