It’s been a little over two weeks since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I do” in a beautiful ceremony televised and streamed to more than two billion people worldwide. The royal couple put their honeymoon on hold in order to celebrate the groom’s father, Prince Charles’ 70th birthday and other official events, but are now enjoying some “alone time” in Alberta, Canada at a resort known as the Royal Retreat. Royal duties never stop – not even for a honeymoon – as the Duke of Sussex interrupted his getaway to make a major announcement on Monday.
Prince Harry announced the 2020 Invictus Games will be hosted by The Hague, Netherlands but he’s not the only one who has a busy schedule when the couple returns to London.

While the Duke may have founded the Invictus Games in 2014, his bride is well on her way to making her own mark as Duchess. The Royal Family’s official Future Engagements page has announced three important events that Meghan will headline this month. She won’t be going at it alone, however; she will be accompanied by none other than the Her Majesty The Queen. Technically, it’s Duchess Meghan who will be accompanying Queen Elizabeth II on the 165-mile trek to Cheshire.
Talk about a welcome to the Firm! Duchess Meghan will be joining the Queen for THREE royal engagements in Cheshire next week.
On June 14 the pair will open the @StoryhouseLive theatre and the Mersey Gateway Bridge at @CatalystSDC. They’ll also attend a @ChesterTownHall lunch.

On June 14th, Her Majesty and Duchess Meghan will leave London in what is being called an “away day” and will start in Widnes where the royal pair will open the Mersey Gateway Bridge at Catalyst Science Discovery Centre. Run by the Charitable Trust, the center provides hands-on science experiences for people of all ages but especially children.
Following the event, Her Majesty The Queen and Duchess Meghan will make their way to Chester where the royal pair will open the highly anticipated Storyhouse Theatre. The Storyhouse will also serve as a library and cinema and will “offer over 2,000 activities each year for local marginalized groups.”
Lastly, the royals will attend a special lunch at Chester Town Hall. Sounds like quite the eventful “away day!”
