Meghan Markle, multitalented actress, activist, and duchess, is apparently also an apt royal photographer.
On Saturday, Kensington Palace posted a black and white photo to its official Twitter account of Prince Harry rehearsing for the Invictus Games’ closing ceremony. In the accompanying caption, the Palace wrote “📷 The Duchess of Sussex,” indicating that Meghan was likely the one playing proud wife behind the lens.
Meghan used to be an avid Instagram and Twitter user, but deactivated her social media accounts in 2017 when she and Prince Harry became engaged. This recent shot is the first time that we've seen her flex her photography muscles since becoming a royal, and her skills are nothing short of impressive.
The Invictus Games' closing ceremony is a significant milestone for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as last year's event was the first time they were spotted showing off their iconic PDA. And this year, they delivered an equally awww-worthy moment.
The duke delivered his heartfelt speech on Saturday night, commending the Invictus Games' athletes for all of their hard and inspiring work throughout the week. "Your example goes beyond the military community. It is about more than just your inspiring stories of recovery from injury and illness," he said to the crowd. "It is about your example of determination, of optimism, of strength, honor, and friendship, or as the Aussies call it ‘mateship,’ as a core value that has the power to inspire the world."
He went on to discuss the importance of destigmatizing mental health, a cause that's always been close to his heart. "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," he said.
Meghan Markle gave a speech of her own at the ceremony, telling the crowd, "The support system on the ground here at [the Invictus Games] is something unlike any other. Because it’s not just cheering on your own, but realizing that by the end of this week, ‘your own’ becomes everyone in the Invictus family."
