Nothing says “public” like polo. After quietly dating for a year, actress Meghan Markle stepped out this weekend to cheer on boyfriend, Prince Harry, at the Audi Polo Challenge.

The royal—also the fifth in line to the royal throne—rode on behalf of his charities of choice, Well Child and Sentebale, starting Saturday, May 6. His girlfriend, in a clean white blazer over her shoulders with a pair of shades, fit in perfectly with other attendees.

Other A-listers included Eddie Redmayne and his wife, Hannah Magshawe, as well as Emma Stone and Tom Hardy.

Harry, 32, and Markle, 35, were later photographed kissing after the match.

On Sunday, Prince William joined Harry and rode on behalf of Tusk Trust. “Their Royal Highnesses have taken part in polo fixtures in support of their charities since 2007 and have continued each year since, raising over £10 million for charitable causes to date,” Kensington Palace said in its statement.

Markle and Harry were first linked together last summer. It is believed that Markle will attend Pippa Middleton’s upcoming wedding reception as Harry’s date.

His Invictus Games will be held next in Toronto, where Markle’s TBS show is shot.
