Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made an appearance in the United Kingdom together on Thursday for the first time since announcing they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted beaming from ear to ear Thursday afternoon as they stepped out of The Goring, a five-star hotel not far from Buckingham Palace. An official at The Goring declined to comment on whether or not the royal pair are, in fact, hotel guests when reached by Fox News.

The photos showed Prince Harry donning a navy suit while Meghan was wrapped in a nude coat and wore black pumps. The two were assisted by men holding umbrellas over their heads and The Sun reported Prince Harry left the hotel shortly after Meghan.

Meghan, Harry, and their son Archie plan on splitting their time between Canada and England in the future.

In February, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told People: “The Duke and Duchess will be spending their time in both the United Kingdom and North America. In addition to continuing to work closely with their existing patronages as they build a plan for engagements in the U.K. and the Commonwealth throughout the year, The Duke and Duchess have also been undertaking meetings as part of their ongoing work to establish a new non-profit organization. The details of this new organization will be shared later in the year.

“In general, the themes of their cause-related work will remain unchanged, which includes the Commonwealth, community, youth empowerment and mental health, collectively,” the spokesperson added.
