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.

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

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.”
