On Wednesday, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were quite busy with engagements, with Meghan getting the harder one. She visited her new patronage, an animal welfare charity Mayhew in north-west London, and got the chance to meet and cuddle with some very cute puppies, while Harry had a private engagement at their home in Kensington Palace.
Harry attended a creative workshop about mental fitness in the Ministry of Defense. Harry, himself being part of the British army for ten years and holding the rank of captain, started the partnership between the Ministry of Defense and the Royal Foundation back in October. The primary goal is to improve education and training around mental health for armed forces personnel.
Harry has always supported military-related causes. Since leaving the army, he has launched the Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style tournament for wounded and injured servicemen and women. Harry has also championed the issue of mental health, a trait that he shares with his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton. All three have a certain group they focus, with William focusing on mental health in men, and Kate in children and young people, Harry concentrates on mental health in army personnel.
While the couple was separated during the day, the two reunited for a glamorous evening out at the theatre on Wednesday. Harry and Meghan were guests of honour at Cirque du Soleil show Totem at the Royal Albert Hall. All the money raised from the event was used for Harry’s charity Sentebale, as well as raising awareness.
Meghan looked ultra-glam in a full-length navy sequined gown by Roland Mouret that highlighted her growing baby bump to perfection. The Duchess, who had her hair tied up in her signature sleek bun, recently revealed that she is six months pregnant and is due in April.
