No time for breaks, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be going to royal engagements just three days after their royal wedding.
On Tuesday, May 22, will mark the first royal engagement for them as a royal couple, as the wedding will be three days prior. On that day they will celebrate Prince Charles 70th birthday.
There is a garden party planned which will take place at Buckingham Palace, and in it, they will honor Charles’ patronages, military affiliations, and charities, whilst also paying tribute to the first responders to the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert in May 2017.

The palace has already released a statement which tells us that Prince Harry and Meghan will not be setting off on a romantic honeymoon straight away after the wedding on May 19th. Instead, they are returning the favor and celebrating with Prince Charles just days after he throws an evening reception for the couple after they say “I do.”
“The couple will be going on a honeymoon, but not straightaway,” said Kensington Palace spokesman Jason Knauf. “They will have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding.”

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, are reportedly planning to spend their honeymoon somewhere in Africa, at a place which has some significance to both of them.
Charles has invited 200 guests to Harry and Meghan’s private evening reception at Frogmore House on the grounds of Windsor Castle (where the couple took their stunning engagement photos).
