Duchess Meghan steps out to secret engagement in London

By Zach Harper

Royal watchers had been wondering if we'd see Duchess Meghan carry out any secret engagements while she's back in the UK, and she did just that on March 5!

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out to the National Theatre's Immersive Storytelling Studio to see how the performing arts venue is using technology such as virtual reality in its storytelling. Photos of Meghan, who is a patron of the National Theatre, show the duchess laughing and standing next to a hologram of musician Nubiya Brandon. The digital likeness of the singer/songwriter is one of those included in an exhibition called All Kinds of Limbo, currently being showcased at London's Tate Modern art gallery.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also posted some images from the event on their own Instagram.

Meghan undertook the engagement before heading to the Endeavour Fund Awards with Prince Harry later that evening, according to HELLO! UK. It was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first joint engagement since arriving back in the UK earlier this month. The couple have been spending most of their time in Canada with Archie, staying in a home on Vancouver Island, after having announced in January that they will step down from their senior royal roles.

Harry officially opened the Silverstone Experience at the Silverstone motor racing circuit on March 6, joining Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton at the launch. The Silvertone Experience will serve as the archive for the British Racing Drivers Club and aims to be an interactive museum for visitors.

We'll see the Sussexes again on March 7 when they attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music and on March 9 at Commonwealth Day services at Westminster Abbey with the Queen, Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. It's expected to be their last engagement as a couple in their senior royal roles. They officially step down March 31.
