The Duke of Sussex on Thursday participated in his first public engagement since announcing that he and his wife Meghan will be stepping back as senior royals.

Prince Harry hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draw at Buckingham Palace, where he met with representatives from the 21 nations taking part.

He is to remain in the UK into next week, despite rumours claiming he was preparing to fly to Canada to be reunited with Meghan and their baby son Archie.
