Meghan Markle tried to present an award but it didn't go to plan

Becoming a member of the Royal Family comes with a lot of responsibilities.

For instance, the forthcoming addition to the family, Meghan Markle, can no longer post anything on her Instagram account and has to abide by a lot of Royal protocols.

However, there are still a lot of fun things that Prince Harry's fiancée gets to do, such as announce awards at prestigious ceremonies.

The 36-year-old American actress was in attendance alongside Harry at the Endeavour Fund Awards, an event which celebrates the sporting achievements of injured and sick ex-service people.

But when she appeared on stage to present an award, things didn't quite go to plan.

As she and her co-presenter, former winner Neil Heritage, prepared to read out the name of the winner, they appeared to struggle with the envelope, leading to an awkward silence and a few giggles.

The moment was captured by the BBC:

And by the Daily Mail's royal correspondent Rebecca English.

Luckily, Meghan managed to brush off the mishap like it had never happened, and Twitter admired her poise and calmness.

At least it wasn't as catastrophic as last years Oscars blunder.

In case you were wondering, the recipient of the award was Daniel Claricoates – an Afghanistan veteran who has climbed both the highest mountains in Africa and Antarctica despite suffering from PTSD.

The Endeavour Fund is supported by The Royal Foundation. At the ceremony, Harry congratulated all of those in attendance:

You guys are truly awesome and society needs every single one of you, and it’s up to every single one of us in this room to provide those opportunities for you.

Harry and Meghan announced their engagement at the end of November and will tie the know on 19 May at Windsor Castle.
