US actress Meghan Markle yesterday accompanied her fiancé Prince Harry to a service at London’s Westminster Abbey as part of her first official event with Queen Elizabeth II.
The service is Britain’s largest annual inter-faith gathering and during the event Markle joined members of the royal family in greeting attendees.
Markle arrived at the Commonwealth Day Service with Harry, his elder brother Prince William, the second in line to the throne, and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.
Since announcing their engagement in November, Markle and Harry have made regular public appearances together, but Monday’s service was her first official outing with the queen.
The couple is set to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19.
In preparation for the ceremony Markle was reportedly baptized last week by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, leader of the Church of England.
