Here’s Why Harry and Meghan sat behind William and Kate at this year’s Commonwealth Service


Meghan and Harry were invited by the Queen to attend this year’s Commonwealth service yesterday and even though they were a slight change in the order of procession, one tradition was kept or maintained.

Having being conducted to their seats with no procession with the Queen, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sat on the first and front row ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex- this was the same order that was used last year when Harry and Meghan attended while still pregnant with Archie.

The more senior members of the royal family sit closest to the altar meaning the Queen, Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cambridge sat in that order while, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex sat on the second row in that order.

While the service was aired on BBC One, the royals sat to listen to performances and presentations from Alexandra Burke, Anthony Joshua and Craig David.

This marks the rounding up of Prince Harry and Meghan’s (former President and Vice-President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust) royal life as they made the decision to step back from royal duties in January, but have received the full support of the monarch. The Commonwealth service is particularly important to the Queen, who became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952 when she was just 26 years old.
