Meghan Markle and Prince Harry beam as they arrive at music festival for one of their last royal engagements – The Sun

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry beamed tonight as they arrived at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the Royal Marines.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex held hands as they made their entrance at the Mountbatten Festival of Music for one of their last royal engagements.

It is the last event Prince Harry will attend as Captain General of the Royal Marines after he quit the Royal Family and moved to Canada.

The 35-year-old won't use the military rank as part of his new life from March 31, with the deal to be reviewed by the Queen in 12 months.

But Harry still appeared to be in good spirits as he headed to one of his last events as a royal.

Tonight, him and Meghan, 38, will listen to world-class musicians, composers and conductors of the Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines.

This year, the performance will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the 80th anniversary of the formation of Britain’s Commandos.

Prince Harry was made Captain General of the Royal Marines in 2017, taking on the position from his grandfather Prince Philip.

But going forward under his Megxit deal, Harry will not wear his military uniform but he will be permitted to wear his medals.

The royal had first entered the Armed Forces in 2006, going on to perform two tours in Afghanistan.


It comes after a tumultuous few weeks that saw Meghan and Prince Harry move to Canada after their dramatic announcement they would become "financially independent" in January.

And amid his final engagements, Prince Harry sat down with his grandmother the Queen for a heart to heart talk earlier this week.

It is believed the 93-year-old monarch assured her grandson that he and Meghan would always have a place with the Royal Family if they changed their minds.

And insiders said Prince Harry was feeling "emotional" as he approached his final round of royal engagements.

At his first engagement back in the UK, the duke insisted "just call me Harry" as he appeared at an eco-tourism conference in Scotland.

Meghan and Harry were last in the UK together in January before the terms of their Megxit were agreed.

Part of the Megxit deal means Harry and Meghan won't be using the term Royal, meaning they will have to rename their SussexRoyal website and Instagram account.

However, Harry will remain sixth-in-line to the throne and retain his HRH status – although he won't use it.

Meghan will also see the Queen, Charles and Camilla and William and Kate for the first time since the split at Monday’s Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

It will be the Sussexes’ final event as senior royals.
