One of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s final royal engagements will be streamed this weekend, so we can relive their last moments in the UK.

The couple carried out a string of engagements in early March before they left their roles as senior royals for life in North America.

One of the most significant ones for Harry was the Mountbatten Festival of Music in the Royal Albert Hall.

It was the last time he would attend an event as the Captain General of the Royal Marines, an honourary post he agreed to give up when he relinquished his senior duties.

It won’t be given to any other member of the Royal Family, while the 12-month period of review until the end of March 2021 takes place.

Meghan, 38, dressed in striking red to match her husband as they attended the music event at Royal Albert Hall, which raised money for the Royal Marines Charity.

Now the whole event will be shown on the charity’s Facebook page on Saturday evening, just what we need during lockdown.

The event took place three times, with two evening performances and a matinee. The televised performance is the one which took place in front of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Royal Marines Charity said: “The concerts displayed the outstanding versatility of some of the world’s finest military musicians and are given the ‘West End’ treatment with spectacular lighting effects.

“The festival saw the Royal Marines showcase their incredible musicianship and pageantry and featured a wide range of musical styles, including music from the big screen and superb solo items, as well as the traditional marches and overtures that have proved such a hit with audiences over the years.”

The duchess wore a striking red floor length gown by Safiyaa to match her husband’s uniform, with red Aquazzura shoes, a Manolo Blahnik clutch and earrings by Simone Rocha.

The duke and duchess received a long round of applause and a standing ovation from the crowd as they took their seats in the royal box.

Meghan appeared alongside her husband at several engagements as the couple said goodbye to the UK for now.

While the pair remain the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they no longer use their HRH titles and will be making their own money as they cut ties with the Sovereign Grant.

They moved to Los Angeles just before the border between the USA and Canada was closed to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Harry, 35, is likely to set up his travel company Travalyst in the UK, but paperwork filed in the USA confirms they will be starting a non-profit organisation called Archewell in the states.
