Just call them the Duke and the Duchess of secrets. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out on Tuesday, July 17, for a special exhibition in London honoring the late Nelson Mandela.
During the official engagement, the newlyweds enjoyed a special performance by the Ubunye Choir, a delivery that was so good, in fact, that Markle got chills while watching the group perform. Her reaction was documented on video, and showed the former Suits star sharing her sentiments about the performance with her husband.
Prince Harry smiled in response as the choir concluded its song.
For their outing on Tuesday, Markle looked buttoned-up—quite literally—in a sleeveless trench dress from Canadian label Nonie. The dusty rose dress, which retails at $895, was cinched at her waist in a bow, and the look itself perfectly complemented Prince Harry’s refreshing cool blue suit jacket.

The pair greeted numerous dignitaries and guests inside, including a 92-year-old man named Andrew Mlangeni, who stood trial in the 1930s and endured nearly three decades of imprisonment after being accused of sabotage against the then-apartheid government.
They also spent quality time with Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela for the opening of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition.
Since their wedding, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex have shared numerous secret moments together at public engagements, including one rather sweet exchange on their wedding day when Harry admired his wife for the first time at Windsor Castle and simply remarked, “You look amazing.”
