Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who are yet to set a date for their honeymoon, made their first appearance today as a married couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who got married in a ground breaking ceremony on Saturday which saw a record 28 milliom tune in to watch the wedding in the U.S, joined the Prince of Wales for a celebration of his 70th birthday in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
It was also gathered that more than 6,000 people, all from the charities and military associations most closely linked with the Prince, descend on the grounds of Buckingham Palace for music, speeches, and, a customary cup of tea and cucumber sandwich.
Meghan Markle was first spotted in the car en route to the event, wearing a pale-pink dress by Goat with a sheer top and sleeves, a matching hat by Philip Treacy, and her hair in a slick low bun. She also wore a silky silver clutch, and opted for a diamond bracelet and rose-inspired earrings for jewelry. Both her engagement and wedding rings were on full display.
Charles will actually turn 70 on November 14, but this is the first public celebration of the milestone. He is expected to have a private party for family and friends closer to his real birthday.
The duo made their entrance at Buckingham Palace following Markle’s new in-laws, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Of course, this isn’t the couple’s first royal engagement together. Since announcing their plans to marry, they’ve participated in official events from various charity events to Commonwealth Day celebrations.
Prince Charles walked Meghan down the aisle at the wedding after her father couldn’t attend due to heart surgery. The Prince of Wales also hosted the evening reception after the wedding at Frogmore House, a short distance from Windsor Castle. At the 200-guest fête, the couple had their first dance to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” Markle gave an unprecedented speech and there was reportedly a game of beer pong.
