King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Edward and Sophie (the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh) and Princess Anne attended the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on Monday, along with other members of the royal family.
All members of the royal family were delighted as they put on a united front amid the ongoing family crisis in what will be the royal family’s biggest joint event of the year.
Charles III, who will be officially crowned with his wife Queen Consort Camilla, also delivered his first Commonwealth Day message as King from the Great Pulpit during the service.
The event has become popular in recent years as the last official engagement Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will attend before the couple step down as members of the royal family in March 2020.
The service included musical performances by saxophonist Yolanda Brown, West End stars Roshani Abbey and Nuwan Hugh Perera and a women’s choir from Cyprus.
Among the distinguished guests of the 2,000-strong congregation were the Commonwealth Secretary General, the Prime Minister of Samoa, High Commissioners, senior politicians and dignitaries from the UK and Commonwealth countries.
