Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Join The Queen At Commonwealth Celebrations

The former actress arrived at Westminster Abbey on the arm of her fiancé Prince Harry, looking typically stunning in a dress and coat by Amanda Wakeley and a hat by Stephen Jones.

Meghan Markle has joined the royal family at one of their most formal events of the year – the annual Commonwealth Day service attended by the Queen.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, joined the Queen, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William and Kate, who showed off her growing baby bump in dress and coat by Beulah London. Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex also made up the royal party.

 

The service, which is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the UK, is held every year to celebrate the Queen’s lifetime commitment to the Commonwealth as Head of its 53 countries. The theme of this year’s gathering was ‘Towards a Common Future’ to emphasise how the Commonwealth can address global challenges and work to create a better future for its 2.4 billion citizens.

 

Later on Monday, Prince Charles and Camilla and Prince William will be guests of the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, at the annual reception held at Marlborough House, the home of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
