Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently greeted crowds during their trip to Birmingham, and Meghan was spotted wearing a diamond cross bracelet - which is believed to represent her recent confirmation.

Screams and shouts from the public greeted Meghan and Harry when they arrived and the American actress looked stylish in a dress and coat by Amanda Wakeley and hat by Stephen Jones.

In her Commonwealth Day message, which will feature in the service, the Queen is expected to praise the "Commonwealth connection" that allows people from different nations to bond and celebrate "diversity".

The source added: "Some of the royals aren't happy about the idea, so they suggested that William do it".

The Commonwealth Service is the largest inter-faith gathering in the United Kingdom and is now being televised on the BBC.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, joined the Queen, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William and Kate, who showed off her growing baby bump in dress and coat by Beulah London.

The Taliban released pictures that appeared to show fighters in the town, where skirmishes were taking place on Monday. This comes after a major air and ground operation was launched by reinforcements.


The Duke of Edinburgh, who retired from public service a year ago, did not attend.

Former One Direction band member Liam Payne will perform during the service today and the reflection will be given by Dr Andrew Bastawrous.

"He is proud and looks forward to it".

The royal couple spent time at an event hosted by Stemettes - an initiative that aims to inspire the next generation of women to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) - at Millennium Point, a site that provides workspace for educational and STEM-related organisations.

Other guests include Commonwealth secretary-general Baroness Scotland, chef Ainsley Harriott, religious representatives and 800 schoolchildren and young people. The theme of this year's service is "Towards a Common Future", which "emphasizes how the Commonwealth can address global challenges and work to create a better future for all citizens through sub-themes of sustainability, safety, prosperity and fairness", the Palace previously said in a statement.
