The couple are enjoying a new wave of popularity after the event, which was their first major appearance since opting to move away from their senior roles in the Royal Family last year.
Harry is also working on another charitable endeavour; he is penning an autobiography, due out in late 2022, from which the proceeds will be given to charity.
Writing on his and Meghan’s Archewell website, Harry said the memoir would be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life so far, adding that he planned to write the book “not as the Prince I was born, but as the man I have become”.
It has led to speculation over who may, or may not, be included in its pages, and reports show some royal courtiers and friends of Harry’s are concerned at what might be revealed.

It’s likely, though, that former partners of Harry won’t be included, as the Duke of Sussex hasn’t openly spoken about any of them, particularly since marrying Meghan in 2018.
Among them is Chelsy Davy, who Harry dated on and off for around seven years, with their relationship finally ending for good in 2011.
Many royal commentators at the time felt that Chelsy could be the woman to help Harry settle down, but their romance was reportedly finished after his then-girlfriend understood the pressure that would face her by marrying into the Firm.
Royal author Robert Lacey, in his 2020 book ‘Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult’, noted that Chelsy realised this more than ever shortly after the Duke of Sussex’s brother, the Duke of Cambridge, married Kate in 2011.

He wrote: “In 2011, after more comings and goings, she finally decided to go — and it was, ironically, Kate and William’s grand and glorious wedding that spring that did it for her.”
This was reiterated by fellow author Angela Levin, who noted that Chelsy’s reaction to the spectacular event had shown her how different the couple’s lives were.
Writing in ‘Harry: Conversations with the Prince’, Ms Levin added: “A friend revealed that seeing the enormity and pomp of the day convinced Chelsy that she and Harry had been right to separate.
“Although they had a lot in common, she saw clearly that because they came from such different worlds it could never have worked, especially as she valued her privacy and guarded it so carefully.”

Prior to their relationship breakdown, the likes of astrologer Penny Thornton, who worked closely with Harry’s mother Diana, were convinced the pair would eventually tie the knot.
She noted how they appeared to have a “strong bond” during Amazon Prime’s ‘William and Kate into the Future’ documentary.
Ms Thornton added: “Astrologically, they are a perfect match, a match like Kate and William, and it’s hard for me to see how he will replace her, Chelsy, with anyone else.
This assessment was also noted by royal author Richard Kay, who described their relationship as a “real love match”.

He described the “great passion between the two of them when they’re together”, and added: “The tension is visible, there’s electricity, there’s sparks flying everywhere.
“You can tell though they have a very volatile relationship, tremendous shouting matches, screaming rows, but then they get back together again.
“I would say that of all the royal romances currently going on, theirs was the real true thing, it’s the real deal.
“And I suspect unless something catastrophic happens, they will marry.
“But it’ll be a very tempestuous marriage.”
After splitting, the pair remained close, with Zimbabwean-born Chelsy even attending Harry and Meghan’s nuptials three years ago.
