Duchess Meghan, Baby Archie, Duchess Kate and her children, Prince Charles, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte attended the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day on Wednesday, July 10th. Prince Harry and Prince Williams were competing in the event to win the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy, and their respective families were there to support them.
This was baby Archie’s first time going out since his christening as well as the first time he has been seen with his cousins. Prince Charles, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte were spotted having snacks with their mom, Kate Middleton while hanging out with Markle and baby Archie. Prince Charles and Princess Charlotte also kicked a soccer ball and relaxed during the outing. The Duchess of Sussex(Meghan) wore a flowy green dress and sunglasses, and The Duchess of Cambridge(Kate) was wearing a patterned pink dress with espadrille wedges.
The polo match took place in Wokingham, England, and Kensington Palace stated “The charity match will help raise funds and awareness for the charities supported by Their Royal Highnesses,” It has also been reported that Duchess Meghan is taking a guest-editing role for the September issue of British Vogue. Sources reported she is going to share her vision on her charity work with issues such as education and women’s empowerment. She has been collaborating with editor Edward Enninful to deliver the upcoming issue of the magazine.
Lastly, this was Meghan’s first time in public since her appearance at Serena Williams’ Wimbledon match. This latter event sparked quite a controversy when a member of Markle’s security team asked a fan not to take a picture of the Duchess of Sussex. The incident has been largely criticized by the British press as Prince Harry and Meghan have continued to ask for privacy on their personal matters.
Time will tell how the royal family adapts to the challenges of being in the spotlight. Luckily, they can at least count with fun playdates with Duchess Kate and her children.
