Members of the Royal Family, including Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, were out in full force on Monday to celebrate this year’s Commonwealth Day. 

The royal couples attended the annual church service at Westminster Abbey for Commonwealth Day, which honours the family of 53 nations, some of which have the Queen as head of state. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance.

Duchess Kate looked spectacular and festive in an eye-catching red coat by Catherine Walker. Prince William donned a classic navy suit with a white dress shirt, red tie, and black dress shoes for the special ceremony at the abbey where the couple were married in 2011.

The Duchess of Sussex made a quick change from the green Erdem coat she wore earlier in the day. Duchess Meghan and her husband marked the day by celebrating the diverse community of Canadians living around the UK, meeting young Canadians working in fashion, the arts, business and academia.

The royal family steps out every year to attend the service, but 2019 is particularly significant as it marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth.

Organised by The Royal Commonwealth Society, the Commonwealth Service is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the UK, according to Kensington Palace. 

“The Commonwealth represents a global network of 53 countries and almost 2.4 billion people, a third of the world’s population, of whom 60 per cent are under 30 years old,” the Palace said in a statement.

This year’s theme ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ refers to the cooperation between the family of nations, who work together in friendship and goodwill.
