The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Penultimate Royal Engagement
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have returned to the United Kingdom for a final week of engagements before they officially step down as senior members of the Royal Family on March 31st. The couple attended the Mountbatten Festival of Music at Royal Albert Hall which brings together musicians, composers and conductors of the Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines.
Harry and Meghan were matching for the occasion with Harry wearing his Royal Marine officers Mess Jacket while Meghan wore a striking red dress by Safiyaa. The couple were the guests of Honour for the occasion which marked the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the 80th Anniversary of the formation of the British Commandos. They received a standing ovation from the crowd at Royal Albert Hall before the show as they took their seats.
Prince Harry currently serves as Captain General of the Royal Marines, a position passed down to him from his Grandfather, Prince Philip. The annual music festival raises funds on behalf of the Royal Marines charity which aims to help serving and retired marines and their immediate families.
The Festival marks the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's penultimate royal engagement as it is believed they will be returning to Canada following Commonwealth Day on Monday 9th March. They will join the rest of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey for the annual commonwealth day service tomorrow afternoon. xx
