Just days after tying the knot in a beautiful ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in London, Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, have re-emerged in the public eye to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.

As the Inquisitr reported earlier today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their first public appearance after the Royal Wedding today. The newlyweds came together with other members of the royal family at Buckingham Palace. While Prince Charles’ birthday is actually in November, they decided to postpone the festivities until May as they had hoped for better weather to celebrate outside.

Photographs from the Daily Mail show Meghan and Harry walking up a set of stairs to enter the party. In the pictures, Meghan can be seen rubbing Prince Harry’s back and placing a protective hand on him as they walk together side by side. For much of his life, many thought that Prince Harry would marry someone motherly after having lost his own mother at such a young age. Twitter users have even weighed in on the subject, comparing Markle’s love to that of the late Prince Diana.
