Meghan Markle Attended Her First Official Event At Commonwealth Day

Meghan Markle attended her first public event alongside the Queen on Monday at the Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey.

Markle, alongside her fiancé Prince Harry, Prince William, and wife Kate Middleton arrived in smiles to attend the church service. The 36-year-old actress sported a navy sheath dress and cream-colored Amanda Wakeley coat, matched with a white hat and navy heels. The Duchess of Cambridge, who is due to give birth next month, showed off her baby bump in a blue dress and coat by Beulah paired with Lock and Co hat.

The event was also attended by the royal family including Her Majesty, Prince Charles, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, and Sophie the Countess of Wessex. The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, has retired from the public life and was not in attendance.

Having the Suits star at the special day was a break in the royal protocol for the British Monarch, but this is not the first time Markle joined them in an occasion before her wedding to Prince Harry on May 19. The blushing bride-to-be was invited to spend Christmas with the family including their Christmas Day Service, according to ET.

The Commonwealth Service is the largest interfaith gathering in the United Kingdom and this year’s theme is “Towards a Common Future,” which “emphasizes how the Commonwealth can address global challenges and work to create a better future for all citizens through sub-themes of sustainability, safety, prosperity and fairness,” the Palace said in a statement.
