Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released new details and pictures from an event they attended last month.

The couple hosted a star-studded evening to celebrate The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection on March 21 to showcase the extensive holdings of African American art, artifacts and documents.

Sharing a press release on their new Sussex website the couple explained their involvement in the event, which was held at Sofi Stadium at Hollywood Park.

Several images of the couple were also shared, including a black and white picture of the pair looking relaxed and loved up. Other pictures show Harry and Meghan hugging guests and looking at the artwork.

The Duchess of Sussex’s mother Doria Ragland attended the event, and one snap shows her posing with Tina Knowles – Beyonce’s mother.

Harry and Meghan said on their website: “Welcoming an array of industry leaders to the space, The Duke and Duchess joined guests on a private tour of the exhibit, which was followed by a moderated conversation with Bernard, Shirley and Khalil Kinsey, trailblazers in the art and philanthropy community who have dedicated their lives to uplifting and celebrating prolific art and culture in the context of Black America.

“The group discussed the history and significance of Black art and how our communities can work together to preserve this vital piece of American history.

“Through this exhibit and many others, the Kinsey family has enabled millions across the globe to access the African American experience through art.”

David Oyelowo was present to show his support for the event. The actor has a leadership scholarship in his name in Nigeria in which he provides tuition to students.

The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive private collections of African American art and historical artifacts in the world – containing rare and important primary source items, from 1595 to present day, and fine art by an array of seminal artists including Jacob Lawrence, Alma Thomas, Ernie Barnes, Bisa Butler and many more.

The award-winning collection is currently on view at the Holocaust Museum Houston through June 2024.
