The flawless date for their six-month wedding anniversary, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attend the annual Royal Variety Performance Monday evening.

Royalists will recall the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the guests of honour previous year, while Queen Elizabeth has attended the show 39 times in the past.

The evening included performances from the London-based cast of Hamilton, Clean Bandit, Andrea and Matteo Bocelli and more.
