After a two-month break from their official royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first official public appearance of the year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Canada House in London yesterday morning to meet with Janice Charette, the High Commissioner in Canada to the United Kingdom, to thank her and her staff for their “warm hospitality” during their restful holiday period, which they spent with their son Archie and Meghan's mother on Vancouver Island. 

For her first engagement of 2020, Meghan stepped out in a beautifully chic camel coat from Reiss, co-ordinated with a brown Massimo Dutti slip skirt and a matching chashmere turtleneck. The Duchess completed her one-tone ensemble with a dainty pair of velvet Jimmy Choo court heels.

The royal couple also visited the Canada Gallery to view a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist, Skawennati, who is the first Indigenous artist to be featured at Canada House.

Harry and Meghan's last public appearance together was at the Remembrance Day services in November last year. The Duke and Duchess have since had the Queen's blessing to take an extended break from their royal duties for "some much needed family time," which included spending Christmas in Canada, away from the rest of the royal family, who spent the festive period at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
