Just two days after welcoming his third child with Kate Middleton, Prince William has already expertly reconfigured his work-life balance. Since taking their newborn son home from the hospital just hours after his birth on Monday, Will has only been spotted driving off the Kensington Palace grounds once, presumably to take Prince George to kindergarten. But on Wednesday, it was back to business for the Duke of Cambridge: Alongside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, he attended a midday event in London in honor of the fallen members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).

According to the official royal Twitter account, the event was a "Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving," as part of the annual Anzac Day. For the event, both Will and Harry opted for dark navy suits with matching striped ties, their own army medals on their jackets, and red remembrance poppies pinned to their lapels. Markle also had a red poppy pinned to her jacket, which was a cropped black piece by Emilia Wickstead worn over a matching black tea-length skirt, also by the designer. To complete the look, Markle carried a small black clutch by Jimmy Choo, and accessorized with classic black pumps and a very Jackie O black beret by Philip Treacy (which is sadly already sold out on Neiman Marcus).

As Will arrived at the event, he gave reporters an update about his two-day-old son (whose name could be revealed any minute now!). "Sleeping's going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself, which is good," he said, according to People, adding that everyone in his little family is "in good form, luckily."

This is one of only a handful of events Prince William has on his calendar for the next few weeks. According to The Daily Express, the 35-year-old is taking something of a short paternity leave from official engagements in order to stay home with Kate, four-year-old George, two-year-old Charlotte, and the new little prince. "He has got some meetings in the next week but for the next couple of weeks his focus will be on supporting his wife and family. He will be focusing on supporting the Duchess," a royal spokesperson told the Express.
