Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appeared to enjoy a private joke as they stepped out on their latest royal engagement.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex looked as loved up as ever as they arrived together for the Commonwealth Youth Reception at Marlborough House on Thursday 5 July, both failing to hide a grin from their faces as they chatted while waiting for the prestigious event to begin.
The newly-weds stood side-by-side as they greeted several “exceptional” young people from across the Commonwealth, and hear about the hard work they had been doing to shape the future in their respective nations.
Meghan looked the picture of elegance as she stepped out in a summery yellow dress which clung to her slender physique, sweeping her brunette tresses into her trademark low bun.
The Duchess opted for a minimal makeup look, with just a sweep of blusher on her cheeks as she supported her husband, who was recently given the title of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by his grandmother, The Queen.
Meanwhile, Prince William’s younger brother dressed smartly for the occasion, opting to wear a navy suit teamed with a crisp white shirt and a grey tie.

Former Suits actress Meghan looked at ease as she joined her husband for the royal commitment, clearly comfortable in her new role as a royal.
As they stood outside the impressive building, Meghan affectionately touched Harry’s hand, as the pair appeared to share a joke.
Harry was then seen laughing as he responded to his wife, while Meghan did her best to conceal a smirk from her face.
As they arrived at the event, the royal couple – who have stepped out together on several occasions since the Royal Wedding – were greeted by The Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, who led them to the venue.
They were joined by as many as 120 young people from across the commonwealth, who will take part in a workshop over the next few days, as they’re encouraged to think about their roles in shaping their countries.
The royal couple were able to meet young leaders from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji at the event, before touring the countries this autumn.
