On Thursday, the American actress was photographed leaving the Whole Foods store in Kensington with grocery bags that had “Alleviating Poverty Worldwide” written on it. Markle, 35, was later seen heading towards her boyfriend’s Kensington Palace home, Nottingham Cottage. It appears she is taking a break from filming the sixth season of her USA show Suits, which is currently in production in Toronto.
Meanwhile the same day, Prince Harry, 32, was across town at the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey where he joined his grandfather Prince Philip at a ceremony to remember those lost in battle. The event marked Harry’s first public appearance since confirming his romance with Markle.
The couple have been dating seriously for about two months, PEOPLE recently confirmed. They reportedly met at the beginning of May when he was in Toronto promoting the 2017 Invictus Games. And over the summer, the actress posted several photos on Instagram from her many trips to London.
Though Markle is visiting, Prince Harry’s royal schedule appears to be packed.
On Friday, he will visit the the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire for the Armistace Day service. Then on Saturday evening, Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family, including Princess Kate and Prince William, are expected to attend the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
In addition, it was announced Thursday that Prince Harry will depart on a 14-day royal tour of the Caribbean starting on Nov. 20. The seven countries he will be visiting are Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent, the Grenadines and Barbados, where he will be joining Rihanna at a celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of Barbados’ independence on Nov. 30.
