======================================
 Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a very good reason for being late to the recent Endeavour Fund Awards.  Earlier this month, the royal couple held hands as they walked the red carpet for the awards ceremony honoring service members who have used athletics or adventure to challenge themselves as part of their recovery and rehabilitation.

Former army captain Harry also made a speech.  And the royal couple were on the judging panel choosing the lucky three recipients of the awards.  Ahead of announcing the winner of the Celebrating Excellence award, Meghan told the nominees, “You don’t have the ripple effect unless each of you is brave enough to create the first wave.”  Meghan took the stage to announce the winner of the Celebrating Excellence Award. She gave a short speech, saying, “I’m so, so grateful to be back. Last year was my first time coming and it was such a meaningful night.”  Since its la
