She’s technically not a royal until her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, but Meghan Markle has already attended her first official event with senior members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth.
Meghan wore a white coat and beret over a simple black dress to attend the Commonwealth Day Service, an annual church service that celebrates the alliance of the 53 countries including Australia that make up the Commonwealth.
It marks the first official event she has attended with the Queen – they’ve previously spent time together but only at private meetings and family celebrations.
The former actress arrived at Westminster Abbey on the arm of fiance Prince Harry, the couple following Prince William and Kate Middleton into the church.
Harry and Meghan sat directly behind Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Camilla.
Afterwards, they spent time meeting members of the public outside the church.
Meghan set the tone for her public life as a royal recently when she discussed the #MeToo movement and empowerment of women at the Royal Foundation Forum.
