It will be Harry and Meghan’s first joint engagement in the UK since they returned from their official tour of Africa nearly a fortnight ago, when it was announced they were taking legal action against sections of the British press.

Harry, in a lengthy statement, accused the tabloid press of a “ruthless campaign” against his wife, adding: “I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”
