  • Prince Harry stepped out solo to attend the Rugby Football League Coral Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on August 24, 2019.
  • The prince has had a much quieter schedule during the summer months, and recently vacationed with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, and their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Prince Harry is easing back into his public duties following the summer break with an appearance at a sporting event.

The Duke of Sussex watched St Helens compete against the Warrington Wolves at Wembley Stadium, London, for the Rugby Football League Challenge Cup Final this weekend.

Fans were particularly excited to see Harry take to the pitch and shake hands with players, children, and mascots.

While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently in Balmoral, Scotland with the queen, Prince Harry's wife also made a surprise appearance this week.

Meghan Markle attended a photo shoot at Smart Works, a charity which supports women to reenter the workplace, to promote the capsule collection of workwear she's helped to design. A source told BAZAAR.com that "Meghan surprised everyone at Smart Works when she showed up for the shoot," and that the duchess was in high spirits throughout the session. She even shared some behind-the-scenes footage on the @SussexRoyal Instagram Stories.

Meghan has enlisted a number of partners to help make her capsule collection happen, including British department stores Marks & Spencer and John Lewis, the brand Jigsaw, and her close friend Misha Nonoo, who just so happens to be a fashion designer.
