Prince Harry and Meghan Make Surprise Appearance at Vancouver Hockey Game

Hockey fans at the Vancouver Canucks–San Jose Sharks game last night got a royal surprise when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex showed up at the arena.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan traveled to Vancouver, British Columbia, and made a stop at Rogers Arena, where they joined fans in the stands and excitedly cheered on the Canucks as they scored.

Videos and photos from the game show Harry and Meghan dancing, chatting, laughing, and cheering, all while looking so in love. At one point, they were caught on the kiss cam, but laughed it off and continued dancing instead.

The pair coordinated dark looks for the outing, with Meghan opting for an airy black blouse by Bleusalt and trousers, and Harry wearing a navy sweater over a crisp white dress shirt, navy pants, and a navy belt. Meghan additionally accessorized with gold jewelry, including a dainty gold necklace, and wore natural makeup and a silky, wavy hairdo.

The pair were joined at the NHL match by Markus Anderson, a good friend of Meghan’s from Toronto who also knows Harry well.

Meghan lived in Canada for years before meeting Harry, while she was filming Suits. Then, after the Sussexes decided to step away from the British royal family in 2020, they spent some time on Vancouver Island. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, they then made the move to Montecito, California.

This time around, the couple is in town to promote the next Invictus Games, which will be held in Vancouver and nearby Whistler in February 2025.
