The royals have arrived. Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended their third official event in one week on Thursday, September 6, with their sweet hand-holding tendencies reaching a feverish pitch at the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London.

The couple stepped out for the occasion at Central Hall Westminster holding hands as they made their way indoors. Markle chose an airy blue bespoke dress by Jason Wu, while her husband opted for a navy suit. The Duchess matched her outfit with a pair of embellished slingback pointed toe pumps by Aquazzura.

While greeting their hosts, the couple briefly dropped the hand-holding as they slowly ascended up the winding staircase. Prince Harry’s hand eventually found his wife’s again as they made their way up the stairs, and the couple continued to remain linked as they walked into the concert venue to take their seats.

The 100 Days to Peace officially marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Multiple organizations benefited from the charity gala including Combat Stress, Help for Heroes and Heads Together.

The couple also attended a Hamilton charity gala with Lin-Manuel Miranda last week, and just two days ago, they stepped out for the WellChild Awards in London.
