Michelle Obama and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex met in London during a stop on the former U.S. first lady's book tour for her new memoir Becoming, according to reports in the Evening Standard and Harper's Bazaar.

The royal couple visited St. Luke's Church to attend the service, which is an annual tradition for Harry. The carol concert was tied to a charity called The Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which raises money to "improve the quality of education in impoverished rural Ugandan schools by investing in buildings and providing hygienic and educational resources".

They spoke at length about the importance of supporting and empowering women across all cultures and communities. Her hair was pulled back in her signature low messy bun, and Harry coordinated with his wife in a navy blue jacket and lighter button down.

The unexpected appearance comes a day after the former Suits actress and Prince Harry attended the Christmas Carol Service in honor of her husband's late friend, Henry van Straubenzee, who died in a vehicle accident in 2002 at the age of 18.

Although the royals weren't photographed at the event, we do know Markle read a poem-"Our Deepest Fear" by Marianne Williamson-during the service, while Harry gave a speech. William and Kate Middleton did not attend, as they were at Buckingham Palace for the Queen's evening reception for members of the diplomatic corps.

In the speech which she wrote herself and pained over getting every detail right, Meghan related to the students having once been in their shoes trying to afford higher education.

Meghan Markle and Michelle Obama reportedly met up in London.

Royal fans quickly shared their comments on the photo, saying how "cute" and "sweet" the young princess looked.

"It's such a special time to have little kiddies", she added. "It's really, really special".
