Harry was making a speech at the We Day UK event at Wembley Stadium, which is organized by the WE Charity to address children's rights, when he reached down for the hand of Meghan and brought her onstage with him.

Meghan, pregnant with the couple's first child, was dressed casually in a blue blazer, black pants and black heels. She affectionately held Harry's hand and patted his back as the couple took in the applause from the crowd.
