Harry, patron of WellChild, will also deliver a speech on stage at the event, held at the five-star Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
WellChild was one of the four charities chosen by the Sussexes to benefit from donations made by the public following the birth of their son, Archie, in May.
It is Harry and Meghan’s first joint engagement in the UK since they returned from their official 10 day tour of Africa nearly a fortnight ago, when it was announced they were taking legal action against sections of the British press.
The high profile overseas visit was overshadowed on the penultimate day when Harry, in a lengthy statement, accused the tabloid press of a “ruthless campaign” against his wife, adding: “I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

The royal couple have been accused of hypocrisy for using private jets, while campaigning on climate change.
They were also criticised for spending £2.4million of taxpayers’ cash to refurbish their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor — and keeping some details of baby Archie’s birth secret.
Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday and its parent company Associated Newspapers, after allegations it unlawfully published a letter she wrote to her dad Thomas.
She insists the letter – which detailed her pain at their estrangement since the Royal Wedding – was private.
