Meghan Markle says ‘it’s very nice to be back’ in first appearance with Prince Harry since returning from Canada

Meghan Markle said it was “very nice to be back” as she arrived back in the UK after she and Prince Harry announced they would be stepping back from royal life earlier this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Mansion House in London on Thursday night for the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which is supporting the recovery of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women in one of their last engagements as senior royals.

Meghan spoke to a crowd of attendees as she presented the Celebrating Excellence Award at the event, where she said the room was full of “inspiring” people.

According to MailOnline, the Duchess said while on stage: “Its very nice to be back. Its the third year I’ve had the incredible fortune of joining my husband here. It’s just the most inspiring space.

“When we were watching the videos all the way in Canada we had the same moment of ‘how are you going to choose?’ Well, we’ve done our best.”

Meghan wore a stunning vibrant blue short-sleeved Victoria Beckham dress paired with a Stella McCartney navy clutch as she linked her arm onto her husband Harry, wearing her hair scraped back into a stylish long ponytail for the event.
