Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined forces with Princess Eugenie at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in London on Wednesday morning. The trio met with delegates at a reception in the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre as part of the high-profile Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) week. Harry and Meghan, who will marry in Windsor in just one month's time, were also introduced to around 40 of the 500 young leaders taking part in the Forum's sessions.
The Commonwealth is to be a key focus of their royal duties together. Harry, who opened the Youth Forum on Monday, has been appointed a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by the Queen.
Earlier this week, Harry said his fiancée Meghan is "hugely excited" to be joining him in his Commonwealth duties. The Prince said: "In my new role, I will work to support the Queen, my father the Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today." He added: "I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in."
The US actress and Harry have already expressed their interest in the Commonwealth and it is widely anticipated they will go on a Commonwealth tour after their May 19 wedding. Meghan, 36, looked stylish as ever in a stunning striped cream dress by Altuzarra, a black blazer by Camilla and Marc and a black and white striped bag by Oroton which retails at £171 and coordinating black high heel shoes. Harry looked smart in a tailored grey jacket and crisp white shirt combination.
Princess Eugenie opted for a cute floral dress, which she teamed with a pair of black suede boots. Like Harry and Meghan, Eugenie will marry Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel in Windsor castle five months later on 12 October.
The couple appeared to be in great spirits as they mingled with delegates at the Commonwealth Youth Forum.
