Take them out to the ball game!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first-ever regular-season MLB game in London on Saturday, as they watched the New York Yankees face off against the Boston Red Sox and even met both teams in person.

The royal couple mingled with Red Sox and Yankees players before the start of the history-making game, which took place in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

“I was very, very nervous. I haven’t felt this nervous in a while but it was a great moment for the team,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Fox Sports about meeting the royals.

The Yankees' clubhouse reporter, Meredith Markovits, captured her own team’s special meeting with Harry and Meghan in a Twitter video.

Both Meghan and Harry dressed in black, giving no hint as to which team they were rooting for. But perhaps Harry has a special place in his heart for another team. Back in 2010, the Duke of Sussex threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a New York Mets game, during a three-day visit.

Although Meghan and Harry's son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, didn’t get to enjoy the special game day with his fun-loving parents, the 7-week-old wasn’t far from anyone’s mind.

Both teams gifted Meghan infant-sized team gear for Archie. The Yankees presented the duchess with an official Yankees jersey with her first-born’s name embroidered on the back. The Boston squad gifted the 37-year-old mom a Red Sox onesie for her baby boy.

Saturday’s baseball game marks Meghan’s third public appearance since giving birth. Earlier this month, both Meghan and Harry attended Trooping the Color on June 8, a parade and flyover that celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s 93rd birthday.
