Prince Harry made his first charity appearance following his honeymoon with wife Meghan Markle!

The newly married royal, 33, was spotted back in England at Kensington Palace as he was the guest of honor at the OnSide Youth Zones gala dinner on Thursday. Harry, who made a speech at the fundraising dinner, was dressed in a tuxedo and bow tie for the black-tie event and was wearing his platinum wedding band.

His new bride Meghan was not in attendance.

While on his recent honeymoon, he announced that the Netherlands will be the host of the 2020 Invictus Games, his Paralympic-style competition for wounded and recovering service members and veterans from around the world.

Harry and Meghan previously postponed their honeymoon to attend their first engagement as a married couple for Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday celebration held at Buckingham Palace on May 22, just three days after their royal wedding at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The next international destination on Harry and Meghan’s calendar is Sydney, Australia, in October for the 2018 Invictus Games.

The event has a special connection for the newlyweds as they made their first public appearance as a couple in September 2017 at the Invictus Games in Toronto. There, they watched a wheelchair tennis match side-by-side (after making their way in holding hands) and sat together at the closing ceremonies.
