The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended an event for JP Morgan in Miami last week, during which the royal is said to have reflected on his mental health.

A palace source revealed that Harry and Meghan were guests at the banking summit, although it's not known whether the couple were paid to appear, BBC News reports.

The news comes after Harry and Meghan announced that they were stepping back as "senior royals" and will be working to become financially independent.

They will stop using their HRH titles, no longer carry out royal duties or military appointments and no longer formally represent the Queen.

The New York Post's Page Six reports that CBS News host Gayle King introduced Meghan, who spoke of her love for her husband, before introducing him at 1 Hotel in Miami's South Beach.

Harry is said to have spoken about his mental health, after previously opening up about how he sought counselling for his mother's death during a candid interview in 2017.

The royal couple recently relocated to Vancouver with their son Archie and will be splitting their time between Canada and North America.
