Many a red carpet has been crushed under the well-polished shoes of celebrities for decades, but none has ever met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dressed to the nines for the 2021 Salute to Freedom Gala at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City. On Nov. 10, the couple walked hand-in-hand down the carpet looking like $1 million as they met with the valor award recipients for the evening.
The dinner and award show is held annually to “recognize extraordinary leadership and honor the brave men and women who serve in defense of our nation,” according to the Intrepid Museum’s website. A military veteran, Harry was asked to give a special presentation during the event, which will honor iHeartRadio Chairmand and CEO Bob Pittman and musical artist and humanitarian Jon Bon Jovi among others.
As they walked down the red carpet, a reporter took the opportunity to ask Meghan if she’s proud of her husband for presenting at the ceremony. “I’m always proud of him,” she replied. Outfits and interviews aside, the smiles on Meghan and Harry’s faces were enough to make us fall in love with each and every photo of them at the event. See their spectacular entrance and take a peek at what else the couple got up to at the gala ahead.
