Prince Harry and Meghan Markle inaugurated a new veteran Centre in Downtown San Diego, after the former refuted rumors he turned down King Charles' birthday invitation.

The inauguration was held after the couple spent time in the morning with active duty personnel and veterans at camp Pendleton ahead of Veterans day.

The couple looked classy in their black ensembles as they graced the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new center.

The Duchess looked stylish, sporting an all black outfit from head to toe, featuring a sleek tailored black suit adorned with a red flower brooch.

She pulled back her side parted tressess in a ponytail and added a few inches to her frame with black pointy heels.

Meghan, 41, looked all smiles as she joined the official for the ceremony.

Meanwhile, the duke appeared to be a little downcasted than his wife.

He opted for a jet black suit while donning a white shirt beneath it.

It was also reported that at times, the father of two appeared to be frowning during the official speeches.

Later, as the couple were thanked for their presence and support, Harry, 39, said “thank you” with a straight face, whereas Meghan gave a bright smile.

This sighting comes a day after Harry’s rep revealed on his behalf that “there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty’s upcoming birthday.”

King Charles is throwing a birthday party for his 75th birthday in an intimate ceremony, surrounded by his close friends and family members on November 14 at his Clarence House.

The Spare author cleared the air as there was speculation buzzing the social media that he had snubbed the invitation to his father’s birthday.

The opening of the veteran center marked Harry and Meghan’s first official outing since they landed in New York last month to mark World Mental Health Day.
