Meghan Markle dazzles in Victoria Beckham during London visit

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to London this week to complete their final round of royal duties after stepping down as senior members of the royal family

Time outside of royal boundaries seems to wholly agree with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who arrived back in the British capital beaming – despite the dreary weather.

They were there to formally finish the last of the official royal duties, attending the Endeavour Fund Awards.


Established in 2012, the organisation remains a close one for Harry; it supports wounded, injured and sick serving military service people and veterans, encouraging them to use sport and adventurous challenges to “reignite their fighting spirit,” as the prince once said.

The Duchess decided to go out with a bang and opted for colour, and a change from her more neutral-toned wardrobe while a working royal. She looked radiant in a form-fitting crepe turquoise dress by Victoria Beckham, a Stella McCartney clutch and navy suede Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Letting the dress make the statement, she wore her hair in a sleek, low ponytail, and kept makeup simple with glowing, natural skin with a slick of dark plum lipstick.

She told the audience it "was great to be back" attending the event.

Prior to attending the ceremony, she was spotted leaving the Goring hotel in one of her wardrobe staples: a camel coat, via London-based designer of The Store, Alex Eagle, and her eponymous line.

One thing is certain, the couple haven't look this relaxed in years.

Their new adventure as a more carefree family, away from the pressures of royal life, was clearly the right choice.
