Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • “The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all – the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges – as if being shot or blown up wasn’t enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury.” • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what’s possible! #EndeavorFundAwards

It’s unclear if she and Harry, who are thought to have left baby Archie in North America during their UK visit, are staying at the hotel.

Harry and Meghan, who will officially be stepping down as senior royals on March 31, are also set to attend the annual Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey Monday.

The pair will join the Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to mark Commonwealth Day.

Meghan and Harry confirmed back in January they’d now be splitting their time between the UK and North America.

Harry has attended a couple of UK engagements over the past week, one being recording a charity Invictus Games single with Jon Bon Jovi at Abbey Road Studios on Friday.
