Prince Harry spoke about his service to the Queen and to the country.

On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the first time after announcing their exit for an official engagement before their reunion with the royal family at the Commonwealth Day service. Prince Harry and Markle attended the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House in London where the duke delivered a moving speech about serving the Queen and the country.

Prince Harry started his speech by expressing his joy for his and Markle’s return.

“Meghan and I are so happy to be back here with you, to celebrate each and every one of you for your achievements, your service and your resilience,” Prince Harry said.

Prince William’s younger brother then went on by revisiting his military background. Prince Harry also promised that he will always be of service because “once served, always serving!”

“For some, the military community represents a brotherhood or sisterhood that no other organization can provide, and for others, it’s a way of life which you never want to leave. For a lot of us, it’s both,” Prince Harry said.

“Being able to serve Queen and Country is something we all are rightly proud of, and it never leaves us. Once served, always serving!”

Prince Harry served in the British Army for 10 years and admitted that leaving the military and hanging up his uniform was “incredibly hard” for him. However, he was forced to do it due to injury. He wrapped up his statement by thanking those who come to his aid and supported him. He also promised that he will be there for them.

“A lot of you tonight have told me you have my back, well, I’m also here to tell you, I’ve always got yours,” Prince Harry said.

Body language expert Judi James noted that the Sussexes were still a picture of a happy couple on their recent outing. In fact, they were showing “honeymoon style” affection.

Meanwhile, novelist Dame Hilary Mantel expressed her joy that the Sussexes’ marriage survived. She admitted that she was among those who thought that Markle would be alone once she left the royal family.
