The British royal family came together at Westminster Abbey yesterday to partake in the Queen’s annual Commonwealth Day services. The event marked a historic occasion for the British royals as it represented Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s final royal engagement before they “step down” as senior members of the royal family.
The occasion also marked the first time that the Cambridges and the Sussexes stepped out together in public following Meghan and Harry’s unexpected decision to eschew their prominent positions within the British royal family and the world, of course, watched closely. Meghan and Harry skipped the traditional procession and walked straight to their seats inside Westminister Abbey. William and Kate arrived later, exchanged quick greetings with the Sussexes from afar and sat one row ahead of them.
With April 1st being the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official transition date for commencing their post-royal life, it is still unclear as to whether or not we can expect to see more of them during their time in the UK.
