Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are supporting girls around the globe. The couple met with representatives from charities that promote gender equality through girls' education at a Women’s Empowerment reception in London, England, on Thursday, as part of the week-long event for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

The lovebirds looked adorable for the occasion, with Harry in a classy blue tuxedo and tie, and Meghan in Black Halo's Jackie O. drape knee-length dress ($375, saksfifthavenue.com) with her hair pulled back into a bun.

Meghan's updo appeared to be a tad more styled than her signature messy bun. She left two pieces of hair down to frame her face, keeping her makeup light and fresh for spring.

Following the reception, Harry and his brother, Prince William, will attend a State Dinner at Buckingham Palace together without Meghan or Kate Middleton, who is currently awaiting the arrival of her third child.

Meghan and Harry previously attended a youth forum reception on Wednesday after Harry kicked off the week of events at the Commonwealth Youth Forum on Monday. He was named Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

In his speech at the forum, Harry gave his new fiancée a sweet shout out, saying, "I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will join me in this work, of which she is hugely excited to take part in."

Thursday’s event marks exactly one month until the couple ties the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
