Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Step Out in London Following Birth of Royal Baby

By

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continued their royal duties on Monday after the birth of Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child. 

Just hours after the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a son at St. Mary's Hospital in London, England, Harry and Meghan also stepped out in London to attend a memorial service at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church marking the 25th anniversary of the killing of Stephen Lawrence.

Meghan looked stunning with her hair swept up in her trademark messy bun while wearing a mid-length black-and-white belted dress by Hugo Boss and nude pumps that matched her clutch. As for Harry, he wore dapper black suit and burgundy tie.

The engaged couple met Stephen’s mother, Baroness Lawrence, and her son, Stuart, at the entrance of the church before taking their seats. During the service, Harry is to read a message of support on behalf of his father, Prince Charles.

Stephen was an 18-year-old British black man from London, who was murdered in a racially motivated attack while waiting for a bus. His death marked a cultural shift in the U.K. surrounding racism and the police.

Five years after Stephen’s death, his mother set up the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust to campaign for fairness, justice, and equality for all. The Trust works to help youth from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Earlier in the day, Kensington Palace tweeted that the royal family was made aware that Kate had given birth. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news,” read the statement. 

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, have been keeping a tight schedule lately. In addition to attending events over the weekend, they spent last week making public appearances at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Also at the start of the week, Harry gave a speech at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in praise of his fiancee, declaring, “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.”
