Meghan Markle joins queen in first official appearance together

The brunette beauty completed the look with minimal makeup, leaving her tresses down with loose curls as she walked side by side with her fiance. The Duchess paired the design with blue shoes.

Executive producers for production company Noho Film and TV, Robert Wulff-Cochrane and Camilla Campbell, say: "We're delighted to be able to show what really goes on behind-the-scenes on Harry and Meghan's big day, with the same trials and tribulations of any wedding as two disparate families come together, except this one also has a gold carriage and some state-funded security".

In her Commonwealth Day message, which is printed in the event's order of service, the Queen praised the "Commonwealth connection" that allows people from different nations to bond and celebrate "diversity".

The Commonwealth Service was a true family affair for the royal family on Monday.




He said: "We hope the younger royals like William, Catherine, Harry and Meghan will recognise the vast persecution suffered by LGBT people in the Commonwealth and speak out as they have on many social issues". The theme of this year's service 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 previously said in a statement.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Patricia Scotland, the Commonwealth Secretary-General were among the 2,000-strong congregation for the service, the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the United Kingdom, which also included more than 800 schoolchildren and young people. Liam Payne, meanwhile, gave a performance at the celebratory event.

Kate and Prince William and Meghan and Prince Harry arrived ahead of the Queen to screams and shouts from the public.

Channel 4 head of comedy Fiona McDermott said: 'I am thrilled to have The Windsors back on Channel 4 for a royal wedding special and can't wait to see what Meghan's dress looks like, if Fergie is invited and most importantly what fascinators Beatrice and Eugenie will be wearing'.
