Following Prince Harry and  Meghan Markle’s three-day trip to Nigeria, the royal couple marked their return to the States by catching up with friends over dinner—just days before their sixth wedding anniversary, might I add. 

According to Hello! Magazine, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen grabbing a bite to eat with their two friends, Brian and Tracy Robbins, at one of their favorite restaurants in California (where they reside with their two kids,  Prince Archie, 5, and Princess Lilibet, 2) called Lucky’s, which is an upmarket steakhouse. 

Now, this is not the first time the duke and duchess were spotted out with these friends. Back in January, Markle, and her hubby accompanied the couple to the Bob Marley: One Love movie premiere in Jamaica.

While posing for photos on the red carpet, the Suits alum, 42, stole the show in a gorgeous black skirt designed by Carolina Herrera. She also paired the designer skirt with a simple yet chic spaghetti-strap top. 

While Mr. and Mrs. Robbins wore matching cream white ensembles to the premiere, Prince Harry, 39, sported a navy blue tailored suit, a white button-up shirt and black loafers. 

Before leaving Nigeria, the royal couple attended a reception dinner hosted by Nigeria Unconquered, a charity that works in collaboration with the Invictus Games Foundation. 

In a gorgeous snapshot taken by photographer Andrew Esiebo at the event, Prince Harry and his wife are staring straight ahead while “God Save the King” (the national anthem for Britain and its territories) played in the background.

Though they were not representing the British royal family at the reception dinner, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex showed a united front as they listened to the anthem. For the occasion, the pair donned coordinating white attire. But what made Markle’s outfit really stand out was the dazzling cross necklace, which belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
