Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public reunion with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II as they attended the church service on Sunday. The Duchess of Sussex and the Prince moved to Canada last year and earlier this year, they announced that they’re stepping down from being senior members of the royal family.

Prince Harry was photographed while driving his wife to the Royal Chapel of All Saints located at the Windsor Great Park. On the other hand, the 93-year-old queen was seen being driven to the church in another vehicle. Last week, Meghan and Harry returned to the U.K. for their “farewell tour” before saying goodbye to their royal statuses. They will be making their last public appearances as senior royals before finally making their exit at the end of the month.

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.
