Meghan and Kate had shared an awkward wave when they came face-to-face publicly for the first time since Megxit was announced in January.  

For the occasion, Kate donned a red coat and a rose-accented hat that quickly caught the eye.

To finish her look, the Duchess of Cambridge added a pair of wine-colored heeled pumps, a burgundy clutch, and gloves.

Not only was Harper's Bazaar swooned by the look, but the Duchess's followers also loved what they saw when images from the event were shared on the Kensington Royal Instagram feed.

While over 400,000 people liked the post, almost 5,000 people took to the comment section to praise Kate for her ensemble.

Amid all the compliments pouring in from her fans, some other royal observers noted that the Sussexes sat behind the Cambridges during the service.

Although observers assumed it was a way to snub certain people, E! Online was quick to point out that they had sat according to their ranks within the Firm.

It would be noted that while William is third in line to the throne, Harry is now sixth after the birth of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

In addition to that, observers mentioned that the relationship between William's family and Harry's family seemed strained.

According to Mirror, Meghan and Kate had shared an awkward wave when they came face-to-face publicly for the first time since Megxit was announced in January.  

The site added that there have been suspicions that the rift in their relationship came in the weeks leading up to Meghan and Harry's announcement to quit as senior royals.

Despite that, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have carried on with their lives as they recently marked the 2020 International Women's Day by paying tribute to some inspiring women they met over the last year.

According to Hello Magazine, the royal couple had shared a collage of four pictures from different events they took part in, via Instagram.

While the first image was from their 2019 visit to the SOS Children's Village in Pakistan, the second snap featured Eileen Fenton, who received an MBE from Prince William last year.

The third image showed Kate during her visit to the Kingston Hospital's Maternity Unit, and the fourth photo was of Yvonne Bernstein, a holocaust survivor who Kate took photographs of in January.
