Just 3 days after the wedding, Meghan and Harry attended Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration, their first outing as a married couple.

Some 6,000 representatives from Charles’ patronages, charities and military affiliations, as well as Police, Fire, Ambulance, Mountain Rescue, and RNLI and members of the emergency services who were on the scene at the 2017 Manchester terror attack, were also in attendance.

Charles chose to celebrate his birthday with the charities because “He wasn’t comfortable with a big event that was just about him. He felt like this would be a much better option.”

Meghan had a chat with some of the attendees.

Speech time! While giving a sweet speech honoring his “Pa” and the work he done with various charities throughout the UK, Prince Harry was interrupted by a rogue bumblebee that flew too close to him.

After they finished laughing Prince Harry recovered and continued his thoughtful speech.

Harry said:

“His enthusiasm and energy are truly infectious, It has certainly inspired William and I to get involved in issues we care passionately about and to do whatever we can to make a difference. In fact, many of the issues William and I now work on are subjects we were introduced to by our father growing up. His passion and dedication are remarkable and seeing so many of you here today i cannot fail but to be in awe of the drive he has had for so many years to contribute to the enrichment of society both in this country and around the world.”
