Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Make Their First Public Appearance Together During a Polo Match

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just went public! The gorgeous couple made their first public appearance together (sort of) on Saturday during the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park Polo Club in Ascot, England. Markle was spotted cheering on her royal beau from the sidelines; Harry is participating in the games this year to support his charities, Sentebale and WellChild.

Of course, the 35-year-old appeared proud — and, of course, gorgeous as ever — as she cheered from the sidelines. The actress and political activist donned a high-cut, sleeveless navy Antonia Berardi dress that featured an asymmetrical hem. She finished the look with a pair of white sunglasses, Aritzia blazer, and Aquazurra shoes.

The appearance served as the first time the couple made their first public debut. We know, finally! Fans should expect another spotting veryyyy soon, as Markle is set to attend Pippa Middleton's wedding. But, there's a catch. While the actress won't be able to attend the ceremony, she will be at her beau's side during the reception, which is usually a bit less formal.

Under Pippa's strict attendance policy, unmarried and un-engaged couple's aren't able to attend the ceremony, but are invited to attend the reception soon after. Unfortunately, Pippa decided to enforce this policy after Harry's friend Tom Inskip's wedding, which Markle attended. According to guests, there was so much craziness surrounding Harry and his brunette beauty, the attention was on Markle — not the bride.

"She saw how all eyes were on Meghan rather than Lara last week," a friend of Middleton previously told the Daily Mail. "The situation was also stressful for Harry. Pippa and her mother, Carole, wonder whether Meghan’s presence could cause a great deal of unnecessary chaos."

The countdown to the royal wedding has officially begun! We're already dreaming of Markle and Harry's wedding-day look.
