Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Step Out for Their First Christmas Carol Service Together

Meghan Markle joined Prince Harry on Tuesday for one of his annual Christmas traditions.

The royal couple made a poignant contribution to a seasonal service at St. Luke’s Church in London in support of one of the prince’s favorite causes, which was set up in the name of a late close friend.

The Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund helps schools in Uganda, Africa, and was named for one of the prince’s school friends who died in a car accident. Both Prince Harry and Prince William are patrons of the charity.

Meghan, who is pregnant with her first child, gave a reading from the poem “Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson at the Christmas carol service, which Harry attended solo last year after announcing his engagement to Meghan.

Harry, 34, was very close to Henry — they went to Ludgrove prep school together — while Prince William counts Henry’s older brother, Thomas, as one of his best friends. Thomas is a godfather to Princess Charlotte.

Harry and Meghan also went to the wedding of Thomas’ younger brother, Charlie van Straubenzee, to Daisy Jenks over the summer.

The couple’s night out coincided with Queen Elizabeth’s annual white-tie evening reception for diplomats, attended by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
