THREE days after the wedding, couples are usually jetting off to a sunny destination or recovering from the party. 

But not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 

Kensington Palace has announced that the couple will carry out their first official engagement as husband and wife just three days after the wedding. 

On Tuesday, May 22, Harry and Meghan will join Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in the Buckingham Palace gardens for the Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration.

The event will celebrate Charles' patronages and military affiliations.

More than 6,000 people will be invited to the palace gardens including a number of guests from the police, fire and ambulance, and mountain rescue services, and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

One hundred cadets from Youth United will also be present; a number of the cadets and emergency services personnel were first responders after the Manchester Arena bombing in May 2017.
