Meghan Markle made her third appearance of the Invictus Games on Saturday evening as she watched from a luxury private box with her mother Doria Ragland, best friend, Jessica Mulroney and Markus Anderson, who introduced her to Prince Harry.
Prince Harry spent time watching the closing ceremony from backstage, the diplomat’s section where he sat with Sophie Trudeau, wife of the Canadian Prime Minister and her daughter and the private box where Meghan was.

While in the private box, Prince Harry didn’t shy away from celebrating with his girlfriend. Although the box was dark, Harry and Meghan could be seen cuddling with and giving her a kiss on the cheek.
Prince Harry finished off the ceremony by addressing the crowd and welcoming Bruce Springsteen onto the stage.
Royal watchers anxiously awaited to see if Prince Harry would bring his girlfriend to the opening ceremonies. Meghan showed up seated the section over from Prince Harry and the other diplomats such as Melania Trump and Justin Trudeau. She was sitting with Markus Anderson, who is rumoured to have introduced the couple. Meghan snuck out of her seat before the ceremony closed, just after Prince Harry gave his on-stage speech.
Only two days later, Meghan showed up again, this time at the wheelchair tennis held in the very open Nathan Philips Square in the middle of downtown Toronto. Arriving hand in hand, the couple looked as relaxed as one could in her first big appearance with Harry. They stayed for around 20 minutes, cheering on New Zealand v Australia and spoke with the families of the athletes seated around them after the match was complete.
One spectator, Justine Wilson said: “They were very casual, it was nice to see. It was nice to see them cheering for both sides.”
When asked if she thought they were already engaged, she replied: “I wouldn’t want to presume.”
This appearance was significant as it marks the first time Prince Harry has taken his girlfriend of 18 months to an official event.
