Meghan Markle makes first UK appearance since Megxit

The Duchess of Sussex has attended her first event in Britain since leaving royal life.

Meghan Markle looked radiant as she and her husband, Prince Harry made their first public appearance in England since deciding to leave the royal family as senior members in January. 

The couple attended the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House, London which celebrates the achievements of wounded and injured servicemen who have taken part in sporting and adventure challenges over the last year - something close to Harry's heart since forming the Invictus Games in 2014.

Meghan Markle was beaming at the cameras as she entered the event, sporting a bright blue dress by Victoria Beckham accompanied with a deep red lip - a far cry from the muted tones she wore whilst being a part of the royal family.

It's reported that the couple met the nominees at a pre-ceremony reception before both presenting awards at the event, where Harry also delivered a short speech. 

Since making the shocking decision to step back from royal life, Meghan has kept a low profile in Canada with their baby son, Archie with the support of her mother, Doria Ragland.

It's expected that the couple will spend the rest of the month in England where they will carry out their final royal engagements before being stripped of their duties on March 31.

Their next engagement will be attending the Mountbatten Music Festival together on Saturday March 7, while Meghan will mark International Women's Day on Sunday March 8.
