Meghan Markle joins queen in first official appearance together


As the countdown to her royal wedding continues, Meghan Markle drew closer to being part of the royal firm Monday when she joined Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family in a first official joint engagement at Westminster Abbey.

Prince Harry’s American fiancée, wearing a creamy white coat by Amanda Wakeley over a dark dress, accompanied Harry and her soon-to-be in-laws, including Prince William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge, to the all-important Commonwealth Day service, an annual inter-faith gathering broadcast live to celebrate the queen’s lifetime commitment to the Commonwealth.

It was part of Markle’s on-going preparation for joining the royal firm, which has included multiple engagements on the “meet Meghan” trail and an appearance, with the queen, at the royal family’s annual Christmas service at Sandringham.

Now she’s been seen with the queen and the family in her first official joint engagement, as part of the Commonwealth pageant.
