The couple also spent time talking about their newest family member, a Labrador puppy! “We talked about how they’ve got a puppy, and we got a puppy before we had our first boy,” actor and documentary filmmaker Ross Kemp told reporters. “It’s a preparation for nappy changing and pooing basically.”

He added: “If you look at A-listers in the world, there probably aren’t many bigger than those two. They are down-to-earth, very warm, very decent human beings who care. They could potentially be a massive catalyst for great change — not just in the U.K. but around the world.”

Many royal watchers will likely recall the first time Prince Harry and Meghan stepped out together for this event on Feb. 1, 2018. It was the Suits alum's first red carpet as a soon-to-be royal, to which she wore an elegant black pantsuit by Alexander McQueen, paired with a simple white blouse and a pair of black suede pumps. Her brunette locks were perfectly shiny and bouncy, despite the rainy weather in London that day. This year she looked to her wedding gown designer – Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy – to create the evening's black-and-white dress.
