Commonwealth Day service, March 2020

On Monday, Meghan and Prince Harry attended the 2020 Commonwealth Day service with senior royals at Westminster Abbey – their last official engagement before they step back from royal duties on 31 March. In contrast to last year's event, the couple were shown to their seats and did not wait at the Abbey's great west door for the procession at the start of the ceremony. Perhaps in acknowledgment of the Sussexes' final outing, Prince William and Kate also opted not to walk in the procession.
