The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are here! Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make their first official appearance as a married couple today, three days after tying the knot at St. George’s Chapel. The pair are at a garden party honoring Prince Charles (his 70th birthday is in November).

Joining Harry and Meghan are over 6,000 guests from the various charities patroned by Prince Charles. Many of the attendees are first responders of the Manchester bombing last year, as today marks the one year anniversary of the attack.

Of course, this isn’t the couple’s first royal engagement together. Since announcing their plans to marry, they’ve participated in official events from various charity events to Commonwealth Day celebrations.

Prince Charles walked Meghan down the aisle at the wedding after her father couldn’t attend due to heart surgery. The Prince of Wales also hosted the evening reception after the wedding at Frogmore House, a short distance from Windsor Castle. At the 200-guest fête, the couple had their first dance to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” Markle gave an unprecedented speech and there was reportedly a game of beer pong.

After the evening afterparty, the newlyweds spent the night at Windsor Castle, and were seen arriving back to Kensington Palace—their official residence—yesterday afternoon. The pair looked casual and cheerful in the car with Prince Harry at the wheel.

Harry and Meghan have decided to delay their honeymoon so they could get started working on their royal duties, as today’s public appearance proves. Although their honeymoon destination has not yet been confirmed, they are highly rumored to go to Namibia for a luxe safari trip.
