This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

Meghan kept her make-up looking natural with a light blush, nude glossy lip. When the Duchess wasn't showing off her beaming smile, a bright a bold blue eye shadow could be seen behind her thick lashes.
She completed her look with a pair of petal-shaped diamond earrings and also showed off her 5-carat wedding ring worth almost $350 000.
Since reuniting earlier in the week for their final engagements, Meghan and Harry had been trending on social media for their closely coordinated outfits that the Twitterverse has dubbed #couplesgoals.
Harry arrived in a blue suit that had an emerald-green material sewn into the inner seams of his suit jacket, which revealed itself as he walked briskly with his wife.
The couple's body language wasn't the only thing that was closely coordinated. According to Daily Mail, their body language spoke volumes to what media had called an "awkward reunion" with the royal family. Body langue expert, Judi James explained:
"It wasn't the warm reunion that we were all hoping for. The tension in Harry's body language especially was palpable."
After Harry and Meghan made an awkward wave to Prince William and Kate Middleton in their first public appearance together since November, Harry and Meghan later shared an affectionate moment as they exited in their vehicle.
It is reported, the two clasped hands, and they waved to the public for the final time as senior members of the royal family.
