Prince Harry and Meghan were seen in animated conversation as they watched a volleyball match between Ukraine and Nigeria at the Invictus Games yesterday.
During the match, Meghan asked Harry about the rules of the tournament, adding how it was a “good” and “crazy” match to witness.
The Duke, while moving his hands and fingers as if drawing a box, appeared to be explaining how the teams were progressing in the tournament.
He told Meghan that the competitors “all these matches are played in a different way” and that they play “quarter finals, quarter finals, semi finals, finals”, to which Meghan replied “Ah, I see”.
Harry then added: “So they all play at different levels.”
Between their cheers and oops, Meghan told her husband “this match is crazy” before replying “yes, I know.”
The royal couple, reunited in Germany on Wednesday, took selfies, kissed and chatted with fellow spectators as they waited for the tense match to begin.
Meghan looked glamorous as she wore white skinny jeans paired with a Ralph Lauren sweater vest, while Harry looked casual wearing black jeans and a gray colored shirt.
After the match, the two went to the old town of Düsseldorf where they celebrated Prince Harry’s birthday.
The Duke, who turned 39 today, was spotted eating plates of bratwurst, sausages, Wiener Schnitzel, red cabbage and mashed potatoes, as he dined with his wife and a dozen assistants in a German brewery last night.
The pair were seen laughing and joking at Im Goldened Kessel restaurant as the food arrived.

Earlier today, the Duke and Duchess attended the volleyball match at the Invictus Games.
The beaming Duchess took selfies with others in attendance at the Mekur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf.
Meghan continued to rock a chic outfit, appearing to wear the same white jeans she wore to the volleyball game, pairing them with a red and white pinstriped shirt and nude ballet flats. Meanwhile, Harry wore the same outfit.
Other diners at the restaurant largely left the couple alone but were allowed to take photos and some said hello.
Meghan and Harry posed with restaurant owner Thea Ungermann and maître d’ Frank Wackers.
The joyful party sang Happy Birthday to the prince while staff presented him with a white chocolate cake.
After sleeping, the group then returned to their waiting cars on the cobblestone streets of the Old Town, or Altstadt district of the city.
Mr Wackers, who has worked at the restaurant for 38 years, told MailOnline: ‘He was a lovely man and was having a very happy time. Meghan was adorable.
The maître d’ said the group occupied two tables in the small restaurant of the Schumacher brewery.
Harry drank six small beers throughout the night, Mr Wackers said, while Meghan had only one.

The prince’s bodyguard even joked with the waiter that “if the beer was bad” he would “kill him.” “But I know he was joking,” Mr. Wackers added.
The restaurant owner added that Harry paid the bill and left the staff a huge tip.
Another source close to the prince told MailOnline: ‘They drank local beer and ate family meals to experience a real German meal. Everyone was incredibly friendly, especially the servers pictured in the photo online.
“They did not dine in a private space and were in good spirits, toasting and laughing with the team.
“After dinner, the group returned to the hotel to sing happy birthday and eat cake just before midnight!
The Invictus Games, which are one of the biggest projects Prince Harry has pursued since his departure from the royal family, mark the first public engagement the Duke and Duchess have engaged in together since May.
Meghan flew to meet her husband in Germany on Wednesday, two weeks after their last photo together at a Beyoncé concert in California, where Harry appeared bored and was looking at his phone.
This week, however, the couple has continually made major displays of flirtation and affection while attending games and chatting with members of the military.
The heated exchanges follow speculation about their future in Hollywood and rumors about their relationship behind the scenes after it emerged Meghan had removed her wedding ring.
But friends revealed it was simply because an adjustment had come loose.
