Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a rare public appearance at yesterday’s Los Angeles Lakers game, and if we didn’t know any better, we’d think they were newlyweds.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were all giggles and laughs as they enjoyed a cozy night out at the Arena, where they watched the Lakers-Grizzlies playoff game. And fortunately, everyone in the crowd got an up-close look at the happy couple when they were shown on the jumbotron. NBA’s official account wasted no time in sharing footage of the special moment on Instagram, where the two smiled as fans cheered them on.

In the brief clip, Markle, who’s donning a pink jacket with matching shorts, politely waves to the camera with a big smile. And after Prince Harry leans in to tell her something, she laughs and grabs his arm. In the Instagram comments, one fan said, "The best royals. Authentic and lovely." Another wrote, "Love seeing two of my faves watching my favorite team!"

The couple's latest appearance comes nearly two weeks after Buckingham Palace confirmed that Prince Harry would attend King Charles's coronation ceremony on May 6 without Markle. Instead, the 41-year-old philanthropist plans to stay in California with Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) to celebrate Archie's 4th birthday.

A source told Us Weekly, “Meghan is planning something really low-key to celebrate Archie’s birthday. Since Harry won’t be able to attend, she just wants to do something intimate with family and a few very close friends.”

The insider added, “She can’t believe he’s turning 4 already. It feels like the years have flown by. She loves being a mom and can’t wait to celebrate her little boy’s special day.”

We'll be counting down the days to May 6, but until then, we're hoping for more sightings of the duke and duchess.
