Thursday was a rainy evening in London, so Prince Harry was seen shielding himself and his wife with an umbrella. Duchess Meghan wore a bright blue dress to the event.
The ceremony itself, the Endeavour Fund Awards, celebrates wounded, sick, and injured servicemen and women who have participated in sporting events. Prince Harry is known as a vocal advocate for the cause of disabled veterans.
One of Harry & Meghan's final public appearances
Harry and Meghan's attendance at the ceremony is expected to be one of their final official duties as senior royals. After stepping back from their roles, they will split time between their home in Canada and occasional returns to England for family events and weddings.
They are next expected to attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall on March 7.

Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • "The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all - the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges - as if being shot or blown up wasn't enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury." • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what's possible! #EndeavorFundAwards
