Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Make Surprise Appearance at Yankees–Red Sox Game in London

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a day at the ballpark in London.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the first-ever regular-season Major League Baseball game to take place in London on Saturday.

Wearing a black Stella McCartney dress, matching belt and Aquazzura flats, Markle took a break from her maternity leave with baby Archie, who will be 2 months old next week, and visited the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London with Prince Harry.

The couple left baby Archie at home, and while Harry had always planned to attend the event, the duchess's appearance was unannounced.

The historic game, between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, helps promote the Invictus Games, with "former Invictus competitors from both the U.S.A. and U.K. set to take part as the ceremonial first pitch is thrown on the ball park," according to ITV.

The couple received gifts from both teams. The Yankees gifted the Sussexes a mini pinstripe baseball jersey with "Archie" and the number "19" written on the back, while the Red Sox gifted the new parents a red onesie with the Boston baseball team's logo on the front.

Markle is also expected to attend Wimbledon next week to watch BFF Serena Williams compete in the tennis tournament, so she's basically the queen of sporting events.

TBH, we don't care which team wins. Today's surprise duchess and duke sighting was a total home run.
