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.

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.
The royal couple spent their holidays in Canada with their 10-month-old son Archie Harrison. This is where the duchess and former actress used to live and film her show. Baby Archie stayed there for several months with close friends. Meghan visited the U.K. with Harry last January but returned to Canada right away. A few days later, they made a unilateral announcement of stepping back from being senior members of the royal family. They added that they would balance their time between North America and the U.K.
