Prince Harry, Meghan Markle together at official event

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle together at official event

But finally, Harry and Meghan have made their first public appearance as a couple, strolling onto a Toronto tennis court hand-in-hand.

Prince Harry and his girlfriend Meghan Markle chose to make their public debut as a couple in Toronto on Monday, making an unexpected but highly anticipated appearance together at the Invictus Games, the worldwide sporting competition spearheaded by the royal.

The prince was seen sporting an "Invictus Games" polo shirt and jeans while the America actress also kept it low in a white button-down shirt with ripped blue denim jeans.

His presence had sparked intense speculation about whether the couple - who have publicly acknowledged their relationship and have been photographed together in the past - would appear together at an official event. Both wore dark sunglasses on an uncommonly hot sunny day for Toronto in late September. He was inspired to create the Games, in order to help wounded and sick military personnel and their families.

US first lady Melania Trump, on her first solo worldwide trip on Saturday, to Toronto, met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and invited Britain's Prince Harry to visit the White House.

Markle, who lives in Toronto, appeared at the games' opening ceremony this weekend, cheering from the stands while Harry sat four rows and a section away beside US first lady Melania Trump.

If he decides that it is not, it could open the way for renewed USA sanctions and perhaps the collapse of the agreement. It gives Tehran sanctions relief in exchange for limits on its nuclear weapons development program.

Following Meghan and Prince Harry's appearance at the Invictus Games opening ceremony at the weekend, the Queen's representative in Canada described the couple's relationship as "marvellous".

Kate and William have been together since their student days at St Andrew's University, but it took five years for the now-Duchess to attend an official event (William's passing out parade at Sandringham) with her boyfriend - and even then, the couple were not photographed together.

Some royal watchers had earlier suggested the couple would hold off on a public appearance together for fear of stealing the spotlight away from the Games, but Harris said their presence has, in fact, brought more attention to the event.

Despite it being nearly a year since Prince Harry's extraordinary attack on the media's "racist undertones" to its coverage of his relationship with Meghan Markle-in which he explicitly called her his girlfriend!-the pair have gone to great lengths to keep their relationship away from the public's curiosity. They left together hand in hand.

And they looked very loved up during a wheelchair tennis match, whispering into each others' ears during game. The couple later lingered to speak and shake hands with some in the crowd.
