The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were present at an event honoring the Prince of Wales


The newlywed Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan of Essex make their first official appearance three days after their wedding on the 19th of May 2018 reported Harper Bazaar.

The couple has delayed their honeymoon I order to take up their joint public duties, revealed NewsSky. Their first public appearance was at a garden party at Buckingham Palace, the Prince of Wales’s 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a pale-pink dress with a sheer top and sleeves by Goat and accessorized with a delicate diamond bracelet and rose-inspired earrings, as well as her engagement and wedding rings.

The Prince and the Duchess entered Buckingham Palace in the wake of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the moment was posted on Twitter.


The garden party honored Prince Charles and all the charities and foundations he supports as a Royal Patron. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were two of the over 6,000 guests, including the first responders of the Manchester Bombing which took place on  22 May 2017. The garden party marks the tragedy's one year anniversary.

This isn't the couple's first royal engagement together, during their engagement they represented the Royal Family in official charity events and the Commonwealth Day celebrations.


Duchess Meghan was walked down the aisle at her wedding by Prince Charles as her own father could not be present as he had been submitted to heart surgery.

The 200-guest evening reception after the wedding at Frogmore House was hosted by the Prince of Wales. The newlywed's first dance was to the sound of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” 


The two spent their first night as a married couple at Windsor Castle. The next day they drove back to their official residence at Kensington Palace. The Prince and the Duchess looked relaxed and happy as they drove in, with the Prince eschewing a chauffeur and driving his own car.

Kensington Palace has not confirmed the venue for the Royal honeymoon, but it is rumored that a Namibian safari is a probable destination.
