Prince Harry gets lift from Lewis Hamilton as they team up for Silverstone event

Prince Harry got a lift from racing legend Lewis Hamilton as they arrived at Silverstone for an exciting event this morning.

The Duke of Sussex, who is completing his final engagements before quitting royal life next month with wife Meghan Markle , is at the famous circuit to officially open a new museum.

Harry was driven to the doors of the new building in an electric Mercedes by the six-time Formula One world champion driver.

The pair will take of tour of The Silverstone Experience in Northamptonshire, a museum charting British motor racing through the years.

The experience is the new home of the British Racing Drivers' Club's (BRDC) archive and also boasts hands-on exhibits for visitors.

Harry will have a chance to get to grips with some of the interactive displays, including the pit gun challenge.

As they arrived Harry and Lewis meet students from local schools in the Tech Lab section, learning more about the cutting-edge science and engineering that goes into motor racing.

Last night Harry was joined by wife Meghan at the Endeavour Fund Awards at London’s Mansion House – the Duchess' first official engagement since they announced their plans to quit.

The couple beamed as they arrived at the awards, which they have attended for the past three years.

Amid the cheers there was one loud boo from an onlooker, however it did not spoil the mood, with Meghan telling the audience at the awards that it was 'nice to be back'.

She upped the glamour stakes in heavy make up and a form fitting turquoise dress by British designer Victoria Beckham, with blue suede heels and gold earring. Her hair was tied back in a pony tail.

Harry, who has been made to give up his official patronages after deciding to move to Canada, is being allowed to retain his private links with organisations such as The Endeavour Fund, of which he is patron.

The charity supports service personnel keen to use challenges to help with their physical, psychological and social recovery and rehabilitation.

Speaking at the event, Harry said: "Some of you tonight have told me you have my back, well I'm also here to tell you I've always got yours."
