The couple were all smiles Thursday as they arrived at Mansion House in London for the Endeavour Fund Awards, which honor wounded or injured military veterans who have used athletics to help them in their recovery while also helping others.

The evening included a special moment in which one of the winners proposed to his girlfriend, to the delight of Harry, Meghan and the other attendees.

Harry and Meghan announced last month they would be appearing at the ceremony along with the Mountbatten Music Festival in London this weekend as they wind down their royal duties.

Thursday's event marks one of only a handful of public events before the couple officially steps back from their duties as senior royals on March 31.

Harry met with rock legend Jon Bon Jovi last week to watch him record a song to benefit Harry's Invictus Games for wounded military veterans. Meghan plans to mark International Women's Day on March 8 in one of her final public events as a senior royal.
