The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a joint appearance at the Vancouver Canucks hockey game, a few days after the Duchess of Sussex teased a major announcement.

At the Variety gala in Los Angeles on Thursday, Meghan said: "We have so many exciting things on the slate. I can't wait until we can announce them, but I'm just really proud of what we're creating. My husband is loving it too which is really fun."

On Monday evening, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a hockey game in Vancouver where Meghan's longtime friend Markus Anderson sat beside them.

In a subtle nod to his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Sussex gracefully stepped onto the ice for the ceremonial first puck drop.

The late monarch participated in a similar ritual during a visit to Vancouver 21 years ago.

Harry and Meghan attended the game as part of the lead-up to the 2025 Invictus Games in Vancouver and Whistler in 2025.

Rogers Arena will be the venue for the closing ceremony of the 2025 Invictus Games.

Prince Harry announced the inclusion efforts of the first-ever Winter Hybrid Games, expanding the sports options.

This event will not only include winter sports but it will also honour indigenous communities through a partnership with First Nations.

Meghan looked lovely wearing her Max Mara "Lilia" coat, which she debuted earlier this year.

The £3,895 coat has the following description: "Max Mara’s black Lilia coat is Italian-crafted from soft cashmere that elegantly drapes into an oversized shape, echoing the label’s unstudied elegance."

Underneath the coat, the 42-year-old could be seen donning a Bleusalt Classic Crew.

The duchess rewore her Altuzarra "Serge" style trousers, which she first wore as a working royal in 2018.

This piece of jewellery retails for a sensational £15,011.84.
