The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shown their support for the Queen and Commonwealth Day, just hours after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke out about the royal family in a highly revelatory interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Harry and Meghan's tell-all chat, which aired on CBS on Sunday evening, has made headlines around the world as the couple opened up about their decision to step back from royal life and feeling neglected by the Firm.

Meghan even clarified reports of a row with her sister-in-law Kate, revealing it was Kate who had made her cry in the lead-up to her wedding and not the other way around as previously rumoured.

In the wake of the revelations though, the royals have chosen not to publicly comment on the interview. Instead, William and Kate's official Twitter account reposted a message from the Queen's official Twitter account on Monday, focusing on the importance of Commonwealth Day.

The tweet linked out to the Queen's audio message, where Her Majesty celebrated the "friendship, spirit of unity and achievements of the Commonwealth".

"The testing times experienced by so many have led to a deeper appreciation of the mutual support and spiritual sustenance we enjoy be being connected to others," part of her message read.

It concluded: "Looking forward, relationships with others across the Commonwealth will remain important, as we strive to deliver a common future that is sustainable and more secure, so that the nations and neighbourhoods in which we live, wherever they are located, become healthier and happier places for us all."

The royals would normally attend a Commonwealth Day service at St Paul's Cathedral

Pre-pandemic, the royals would have attended the traditional Commonwealth Day service at St Paul's Cathedral, but this year they rallied together for a TV special that aired on the same day as the much-anticipated Oprah Winfrey interview.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, William and Kate, and the Countess of Wessex appeared on BBC One's A Celebration for Commonwealth Day. In the programme, William and Kate spoke to medical, charity and voluntary staff from across the Commonwealth and heard about how they have adapted their efforts in response to the pandemic.
