Meghan, Harry beam during royal reception for young leaders: Pics
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Your Commonwealth Youth Challenge reception at Marlborough House on Thursday, July 5, to celebrate youth throughout the Commonwealth. The pair were photographed grinning and exchanging a few looks during the royal outing.
The Commonwealth Youth Forum preceded the reception. Those workshops helped the young participants brainstorm about how they want the world to be by 2040. Harry and Meghan received briefings on how the youth are collaborating to make change and mold the future.
The Suits alum wore a big grin as she stood alongside her husband. The two wed in a breathtaking ceremony at Windsor Castle on May 19.
The prince is settling into his new role as Youth Ambassador to the Commonwealth nicely after being appointed in April. The royal duo talked to a group of young people from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga — countries they will visit during their first royal tour in the fall — at Thursday’s event.
Harry and Meghan chatted it up like no one was watching. The 36-year-old was spotted cheering on her 33-year-old husband with friend Serena Williams by her side at a polo match on June 30. The duke competed with Prince William to raise money for Sentebale and the Royal Foundation.
The former actress glowed in a bright yellow Brandon Maxwell sheath dress. She paired nude heels and a pulled back hairstyle with the frock for a demure yet classic look.
The duke and duchess appeared to be in good spirits despite the fact that a palace insider told Us Weekly earlier this week that the royal family is “frustrated” that her father, Thomas Markle, keeps talking to the press. “Thomas is walking a fine line,” a source explained. “This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”
