The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have managed some time out of the spotlight after their fairytale wedding before they attend the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday.

The newly married Duke and Duchess of Sussex have snuck in some recovery time after their fairytale wedding before they attend their first official engagement as husband and wife.

Unlike other newlyweds, Harry and Meghan won’t be jetting off on honeymoon straight away, but will instead attend a Buckingham Palace garden party as part of the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday celebrations on Tuesday.

The couple exchanged vows in a ceremony watched by millions across the world at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday.

It will mark the beginning of a new life for former actress Meghan, who has already spoken of her desire to “hit the ground running” in her role as a full-time royal.

Shortly after the couple were proclaimed husband and wife, Kensington Palace’s website and social media pages were updated to reflect the family’s newest member.

A biography of the Los Angeles-born Suits star described her “lifelong commitment” to working to promote “social justice and women’s empowerment”, carrying a quote in which she declares: “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.”

Meghan, who is reported to have broken with tradition to give a speech of her own at the wedding reception, will continue her work with a number of charities, including UN Women and World Vision, as well as with the Royal Foundation alongside Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

A visit to Australia is in the diary for October, for the 2018 Invictus Games, while other trips abroad this year are said to be in the pipeline.

But despite their hectic schedules, the couple seized the opportunity to spend some time away from the public eye on Sunday.

After two receptions hosted by the Queen and Prince of Wales on Saturday – with some guests said to have continued partying well after Frogmore House closed its doors – the royal newlyweds left Windsor Castle on Sunday afternoon for some well-earned privacy.

Only the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen returning home to Kensington Palace on Sunday evening.

Earlier in the day, the Birmingham-born designer of Meghan’s wedding dress had told how the royal bride had been “glowing” and “incredibly composed” when she had put on the gown on the morning of the ceremony.

Clare Waight Keller also revealed that Harry had spoken to her after the service, and said: “Oh my God, thank you, she looks absolutely stunning.”

The touching revelation came as reports revealed guests celebrated the couple tying the knot by downing themed cocktails, eating up-market fast food, watching a spectacular fireworks display and dancing to a celebrity DJ.
