The Sussex Team

The first game of the Major League Baseball (MLB) London Series at London Stadium.

Meghan surprised us all that day with her appearance at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where she joined Harry for a Major League Baseball match between Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. They attended the first of a two-game series, which was being held to promote American baseball in the U.K. and organized in support of Prince Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation with “former Invictus competitors from both the U.S.A. and U.K. set to take part as the ceremonial first pitch is thrown on the ballpark.”
