Meghan Markle Suits Up for First Awards Ceremony With Fiance Prince Harry
By Jackie Willis
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry braved the London rain for yet another public appearance.
On Thursday night, the newly engaged couple were seen arriving to the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in sporting and adventure challenges over the last year.
While a lot of awards ceremonies call for formal attire, Meghan kept her look simple and a chic, stepping out in an Alexander McQueen black suit, a crisp white button-down shirt and black heels. As for Harry, he looked dapper in a blue suit and dark tie.
The 33-year-old royal was quite chivalrous as the couple walked up to the event, offering up his umbrella to his fiancee while he opted to walk in the rain.
This is the first awards ceremony Meghan and Harry have attended together since getting engaged in December.
In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, the Suits star's friend, Priyanka Chopra, was asked if she'll be a bridesmaid in the couple's May wedding. "If you see me there, you'll know," she teased.
While Priyanka didn't offer up any details into the royal wedding, she did praise Meghan for how she's handled all the attention.
"I don't think anybody else would be able to do it the way she will. She’s just right for it," the Quantico star gushed. "She's an icon, truly, that girls can look up to, that women can look up to. She's normal, she's sweet, she's nice, she thinks about the world, wants to change it and this was even before any of this happened."
