Prince Harry surprised fans at WE Day, a celebration of young leaders in London, after bringing a special guest on stage with him. It wasn’t the prince’s empowering speech that garnered the most attention at Wembley’s SSE arena – it was mother-to-be Meghan Markle.
The room filled with applause as the Duke of Sussex asked Meghan to join him. He told the crowd: “Now I’m going to try and drag my wife on stage.”
The duchess took her husband’s hand as he led her to the stage, and the audience went wild as the pair cuddled into each other.
The adorable moment was captured in a video by Hello! Magazine’s Emily Nash.

Although Meghan didn’t formally address the room, she waved at fans while sporting a navy blazer and black skinny jeans.
Markle was seen beaming at the audience while holding her baby bump and clutching Prince Harry’s arm as the pair were welcomed by cheers from the 12,000 people in the crowd.
The loved-up royals were pictured smiling at each other from the stage, and they didn’t hold back in showing their affection.
Prince Harry even made a nod to his wife during his speech on the impact of mental health, climate change, and other global issues affecting young people – he said Markle often reminds him to focus on “love, not hate.”
He said: “As my wife often reminds me with one of her favourite quotes by Martin Luther King Jr. – ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.'”
This isn’t the first time the couple has showed their affection in public.
The couple made headlines on Tuesday after they were pictured cuddling up to one another at Prince Charles’ 50th anniversary of his investiture at Buckingham Palace – their first shared appearance with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this year.
Again, fans noticed Meghan and Harry holding onto each other for the duration of the night. Whether clutching each other’s arms, or sharing a private joke, they were inseparable.
