There has been quite a bit of buzz over the Major League Baseball London Series over the past few days, with so many fans anticipating today's big game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. And apparently the showdown wasn't even enough to keep the royals away, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle showed up and surprised everyone, and needless to say, fans are totally going wild over the appearance. 

  • The couple shared a series of photos to the SussexRoyal Instagram account.

    They captioned the pics with:

    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.

  • Um, can we go ahead and comment not only on how great Meghan looks, but how happy she is?

    Granted, we haven't seen her much since she and Harry welcomed baby Archie Harrison back in May, but honestly, this is the most content and relaxed that Meghan has looked in months. 

    Joining the royal family has to have wreaked havoc on her life in more ways than one, and it's likely that attending this baseball game was sort of like having a little piece of home in London.

  • As for which team Meg & Harry were rooting for? Looks like they opted not to pick a favorite.

    The Yankees players were kind enough to gift Meghan and Harry with this adorable little onesie for Archie -- how precious!

  • But wait! The Red Sox got in on the action too.

    Little Archie is certainly going to be stylin' in his new duds. Let's hope mum and dad are kind enough to grace us with pics of him wearing his cool new outfits.

  • People just can't get enough of these two today.

    Hmm. They really do look so happy and in love, don't they? It seems as though they are starting to get over that initial shock of how much life changes with a new baby. And let's be honest -- they were probably thrilled to sneak away and have some alone time together, even if it was in about the most public and populated place in London they could find.

  • Fans can't contain their excitement over the appearance! 

    Aww. Seeing them at the ballpark made our day too!

  • Huh. Wonder if they indulged in a hot dog and a beer or two during the game?

    Ehh, probably not. After all, they do have a new baby to attend to once this day date is over.

    We hope this is just the first of many surprise appearances from these two in the coming weeks. Maybe if we're really lucky, they'll bring Archie along for the ride next time.
