Double Duchess Outing As They Join The Queen And Royal Family For Commonwealth Day

Marking Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey, the senior members of the Royal Family were out in full force to support the Queen and mark the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth.

The Duchess of Sussex (Meghan Markle) and the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) greeted each other with a kiss on the cheek and shared many sly smiles between the two of them. All despite the rumours that the two were feuding.

Middleton re-wore her red Catherine Walker coat with matching fascinator and Markle opted for a cream coat and dress by Victoria Beckham.

Princes William and Harry, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, who stunned in a royal purple outfit, helped celebrate the 53 countries, almost 2.4 billion people, that are part of the Commonwealth.

As Her Majesty arrived last, she always does, the three royal ladies were spotted curtsying as Queen Elizabeth entered the abbey. Once the Queen greeted the members of her family, each one took their turn to curtsy or bow their head as she said hello.

The 2,000 strong congregation was treated to a performance by Alfie Boe who sang a rendition of Snow Patrol’s “Run” with the help of Clean Bandit.

Well-wishers waited outside the abbey where children had posies to present to the royal women.

The day particularly means a lot to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who is President and Vice-President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, respectively. Roles that have already taken them to Australia and New Zealand with many more Commonwealth countries in the near future. Cough *Canada* Cough.
