If you were looking for more evidence that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in love, then we think we’ve found it. As the Royal Tour draws to a close Meghan shared her first official photo of the trip via the Kensington Palace account. The photo in question? A picture of her husband, of course.

Meghan snapped the pic of Harry as he rehearsed his speech for for the Invictus Games closing ceremony. This isn’t the first time Meghan has supported Harry with his speech rehearsal with the Duchess also pictured front row prior to the opening ceremony last week.
During Harry’s emotional speech, he commended the athletes who had taken part in this year’s games. “In a world where negativity is given too much of a platform, our Invictus competitors — many of whom have been given a second chance at life — are achieving extraordinary things,” he said.
He also addressed a topic close to his heart: mental health. “By simply being here and fighting back from some of the darkest experiences known to anyone, you have become role models for everyone at home or in the stands who might be struggling with their emotions or with a mental illness… You are showing it’s OK not to be OK. And most importantly, you are showing us all that it’s OK to ask for help.”
Meghan also took to the stage to give a speech. “I’m not sure if many of you know this, but a few years ago, before I had met my husband, I had the incredible honor of visiting troops deployed all over the world, from the UK to Italy and Afghanistan, and several other countries,” Meghan recalled.
"The support system on the ground here at @InvictusSydney is something unlike any other. Because it’s not just cheering on your own, but realising that by the end of this week, ‘your own’ becomes everyone in the Invictus family." — The Duchess of Sussex #IG2018 pic.twitter.com/F958H2YpQ1— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) October 27, 2018
