The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attend the London premiere of Disney’s The Lion King

Tonight, Meghan walked her very first red carpet premiere as a member of the Royal Family, with Harry, by attending the London premiere of Disney’s ‘The Lion King’, a re-imagining of the 1994 classic. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the event in Leicester Square, and met the casting of the film (Beyonce, Seth Rogen, Keegan Michael-Kay, Billy Eichner…) and its director Jon Favreau (who directed Iron Man and its sequel as well as the 2016 re-imagining of Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’). Harry and Meghan also reunited with Sir Elton John, who composed new arrangements and new music for the film.

The premiere was held in support of the conservation and community work of His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex through The Royal Foundation, as well as the global conservation campaign ‘Protect The Pride’ Disney launched on par with the release of ‘The Lion King’.

Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ – Protect The Pride
In celebration of the release of Disney’s The Lion King, the upcoming groundbreaking feature film helmed by Jon Favreau in theaters July 19th, The Walt Disney Company is proud to announce a global conservation campaign to raise awareness and support the dwindling lion population across Africa.

Since Disney’s The Lion King was first released in theaters 25 years ago, half of Africa’s lions have disappeared. Lions face rising threats, such as poaching, loss of prey and destruction of habitats. However, research shows the lion population can recover.

Disney has already donated more than $1.5 million to Lion Recovery Fund and its partners and will make additional grants as well as invite fans to help double the donation for a total contribution of up to $3 million. Fans may participate by taking part in celebratory experiences and purchasing special edition products, as part of The Lion King Protect the Pride campaign.

[…] The Wildlife Conservation Network has established an unparalleled reputation for how they lead, manage and evaluate the programs they oversee. The Lion Recovery Fund is one of their premiere programs that supports organizations working across Africa to double the number of lions in the wild by 2050. By protecting lions, we also are protecting the health and well-being of the savanna, wildlife and communities who live alongside them.

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend the Red Sox Vs. Yankees baseball game

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend the Red Sox Vs. Yankees baseball game

Earlier tonight, The Duchess of Sussex made an unnannounced appearance at the Major League Baseball London Series game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. The game was held in support of the Invictus Games Foundation, which the Duke of Sussex founded back in 2014. Prior to the game, Harry and Meghan met with each team and were given lovely sport shirts for Baby Archie. The Duchess was also seen giving a hug to Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, who’s been reported to be a very distant cousin of hers. The Duke of Sussex then watched the game at the London Stadium, Olympic Park.

This game seemed quite important for Meghan, not only because she’s been supporting the Invictus Games Foundation ever since she’s been with Harry, but also because she is quite a baseball fan. Before her Instagram was shut down, she documented her attendance at a few games of the Toronto Blue Jays, and was spotted wearing caps from the LA Dodgers, the Chicago White Sox and the NY Yankees.

@SussexRoyal – Tonight, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first of a two game series of the Major League Baseball #LondonSeries, in support of @WeAreInvictusGames.

Tonight’s highly anticipated game between the #Yankees and #RedSox took place at London stadium, Olympic Park.

The @WeAreInvictusGames, of which His Royal Highness is Founding Patron, has been selected as charity partner for the @MLB 2019 series. The Invictus Games Foundation is the international charity that oversees the development of the Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel and veterans participate. It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness.

The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’ – it embodies the fighting spirit of the competitors.

As part of the partnership, the Invictus Games Foundation have a team participating in London’s #Softball60, the social softball series built for the city and targeted to introduce the sport to new audiences and demonstrate that it is an inclusive sport.

On this #ArmedForcesDay, tonight’s event was also a chance for Their Royal Highnesses to shine a light on the men and women here in the UK and around the world who have sacrificed so much for their country.
