British Royal Family

Duchess Catherine and Prince William's third royal baby may have just been welcomed into the world, but it's business as usual for the newborn prince's uncle and aunt-to-be Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they kept their scheduled royal engagement.

Stepping out hours after Kate gave birth, Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan attended a Memorial Service to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence — a black British man who was killed in a racially charged attack 25 years ago at the age of 18.

With less than one month until their wedding day, the couple showed solidarity as they arrived hand-in-hand.

Harry and Meghan, who wore a belted black dress from Hugo Boss and styled her hair in her signature low-bun, met Baroness Lawrence, Stephen Lawrence's mother, at the entrance of the St. Martin-in-the-Fields church before taking their seats.

During the service, the prince read a message of support on behalf of his father Prince Charles.

While the soon-to-be newlyweds did not make mention of the baby's arrival, they previously stated they are delighted by the news.

Just kilometers away, Prince Harry's brother and sister-in-law presented their child to the public on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital in London.
