Prince Harry helped celebrate excellence at the 2019 London Marathon!

On Sunday, after Eliud Chipoge of Kenya won the prestigious race for the fourth time, the 34-year-old prince proudly posed with him for photos alongside Brigid Kosgei, the women's champion and youngest ever to win at 25.

"The Duke has been Patron of the Trust since 2012 because he believes that mental fitness is absolutely crucial to our wellbeing. These runners not only set a goal for themselves personally and emotionally, but the majority of runners choose to raise money for charity," the caption on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Instagram post reads, alongside a photo of Harry with competitors Derek Rae of Great Britain, Michael Roger of Australia and Eli Harti of Morocco states.

"It's the perfect fusion of doing something good for yourself while doing good for others," the caption continues. "The joyful atmosphere created by locals, tourists, families and friends speaks to the spirit of what community is all about -- supporting one another, even complete strangers. The @LondonMarathon is the biggest one-day fundraising event on the planet. This year's Marathon will see the total raised for charity surpass a record-breaking £1 billion. So for every runner, volunteer, sponsor and member of the public that has played a part in making today a success -- thanks a billion!"

Harry also posed for photos with a number of other competitors in the 25.2-mile race around the city.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth - a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different - but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queens_commonwealth_trust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.

Recently, Meghan and Harry made the move into their new home at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle, after previously living at Kensington Palace, where Will and Kate reside. 

Our source says that one of the reasons for the move to Windsor was the opportunity to bring their baby up away from the "prying eyes of the paparazzi." But according to the source, Meghan and Harry have already been welcoming family as guests in their new home, which will continue when the baby comes. The source says a series of Meghan's closest friends have recently been to London to visit, and she has more visits scheduled after the baby.

Earlier this month, Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan and Harry are breaking with protocol regarding their child's arrival and won't be immediately announcing the birth of the baby.

Additionally, unlike Prince William and Kate Middleton, who posed for photos outside St. Mary's Hospital following the arrival of their three children, Meghan and Harry will have a photo op with their newborn on the grounds of Windsor Castle when they are ready.
