Meghan Markle attends first official engagement with Prince Harry.

By

Meghan Markle, 36, was seated a few rows away from Prince Harry (illustrated bottom left) at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Saturday night for the opening ceremony of the Invictus games. The Suits actress was joined by her friend Markus Anderson (top left) and chatted animatedly to him between applauding athletes from the 17 nations taking part.

Because they are not engaged, Markle was forbidden by protocol from joining Harry in the Royal Box. Instead, he was joined by First Lady Melania Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko (bottom right). Harry, 33, glanced repeatedly in his girlfriend's direction (inset) throughout the ceremony which kicked off at 8pm.

He had lent one of his Scotland Yard protection officers to his girlfriend for the night. As dictated by the same protocol which forbade her from the box, Markle is not entitled to her own security detail because she does not pay UK tax. She had three bodyguards on Saturday night - including Harry's protection officer - who kept watch in a stairwell next to her seat. It was the first time the pair have both appeared at an official event since their romance was confirmed last November.
