Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, marked Commonwealth Day with a visit to Canada House in London. The royal couple headed to the consulate to attend a youth event, meant to showcase the diverse community of young Canadians living in London and across the U.K., meeting with representatives from the worlds of fashion, the arts, business and academia.
The event included a meet-and-greet with the expats, a musical performance, and a hands-on demonstration where the royals were taught how to make traditional maple taffy, by pouring hot syrup on snow.
The couple also received several baby gifts, including a onesie featuring a maple leaf and a pair of infant-sized moccasins. The Duchess of Sussex, who lived in Toronto when she starred in the series “Suits”, wore a green coat by Montreal-born designer Erdem Moralioglu.
Following their visit, Harry and Meghan headed to join the rest of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey for the yearly Commonwealth service. This year marks 70 years since the creation of the modern Commonwealth with the issuing of the London Declaration.
