The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kicked off this year’s Commonwealth Day with an engagement at Canada House in London where they met with a select group of Canadians living in the UK. In keeping with Harry’s position as the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, there was an emphasis on young people representing the worlds of fashion, art, business and academia.

The two participated in maple candy making with children at the event and were given a tour of the building. According to the Canadian High Commissioner, Janice Charatte, she repeatedly dropped hints about the two visiting Canada soon, but the Sussexes stayed mum. There have been repeated rumors that the two were slated to make a visit to North America this year, but plans have been put on the backburner thanks to the baby. It’s possible one will be planned for the autumn, but equally as likely that any extended professional travel will be postponed until next year.

In any event, Meghan was reportedly delighted by how many of the guests were from Toronto, where she lived while filming Suits.

The two doled out maple candy to children and greeted a few guests who had gathered outside of the House when coming and going.

They were also gifted some Canada-themed baby gifts as they were leaving, including a onesie with a red maple leaf on it and small moccasins.

Meghan was outfitted in a fully royal getup today by way of Canadian designer Erdem. The ensemble featured a green wool dress with a matching coat with black beading. Her heels were black Aquazzura and her clutch was Givenchy.

As we speak, a Commonwealth Day ceremony is ongoing at Westminster Abbey and features the rest of the Royal Family. I’ll cover that this afternoon as well.
