Meghan Markle makes her first official engagement

NEW The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived for their first public engagement as a married couple, joining the Prince of Wales for a celebration of his 70th birthday in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. Harry and Meghan, who enjoyed only a brief private getaway following their wedding on Saturday, returned to duty today, delaying their honeymoon to honour the Prince.

It is likely be a strange experience for the new Duchess, not just because she will never have seen anything like it.
