The Duke of Sussex has been an advocate of mental health since he started the Heads Together initiative (opens in new tab) in 2016 with his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton to change the stigma about mental health. Tonight, Meghan Markle will be joining with her new husband to support the family charity, along with Help for Heroes (opens in new tab) and Combat Stress (opens in new tab), at the 100 Days to Peace Gala concert in London.

Meghan and Harry arrived to the gala concert (opens in new tab) holding hands. Unlike the formal menswear-inspired outfits Meghan has been rockin' lately, like her classic-but-chic Altuzarra suit (opens in new tab), the Duchess chose to wear a gorgeous sleeveless blue Jason Wu dress (opens in new tab) and Aquazzura heels. Harry wore his signature navy suit. Together, they'll participate in a evening of music "to mark the centenary of the last 100 days of First World War hostilities," according to the gala's website (opens in new tab). Veterans will be recognized for the struggles with PTSD that they've endured after returning home from war and the event will help raise money to support them.

Prince Harry served in the British Army for 10 years and completed two tours in Afghanistan. According to the Royal Family website (opens in new tab), "he continues to work in support of his fellow servicemen, promoting support for wounded men and women as they adapt to life post-injury." Hence, his attendance at tonight's 100 Days to Peace Gala.

Just two days ago, Harry and Meghan attended the WellChild Awards (opens in new tab) to honor seriously ill children and young people who have made a significant impact in others' lives. The royal couple interacted sweetly with the children, and even told one of them their favorite Disney movies. (opens in new tab) The 100 Days to Peace Gala marks the third official event for the royal couple in the past week-and-a-half.
