Yesterday’s Commonwealth Day service might’ve marked the last of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s official appearances, but we haven’t seen the last of them yet. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which supports young leaders around the world, has released new footage of a private meeting between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and change-makers in Buckingham Palace. During the gathering, the group discussed mental health, equality, and creating positive worldwide change.

Harry and Meghan, who are president and vice president of the Trust, were in impressive company for the sit-down. Attendees included: Kenny Imafidon, social entrepreneur and activist; Esther Marshall, author and founder of sTandTall, which supports women and girls who’ve been abused; Izzy Obeng, founder of Foundervine, a training consultancy that helps diverse entrepreneurs; Victor Ugo, founder of youth-focused organization Mentally Aware Nigeria; and Kiran Kaur and Amna Akhtar, who co-founded the female empowerment platform Girldreamer.

Meghan dressed to the nines in a pleated georgette dress from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, which featured billowy sleeves, subtle draping, and an asymmetrical hemline. The tan outfit is a nonetheless chic but subdued deviation from yesterday’s emerald look, which included a caped Emilia Wickstead dress, a matching William Chambers hat, and a deep green Gabriela Hearst mini bag.

This private appearance is a look ahead at Meghan and Harry’s post-royal life, as they’ll continue to support their charities and patronages even after stepping down as senior working royals. The couple’s official transition into their next chapter begins on March 31.
