On Monday, the British royal family were out in force to attend the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.
King Charles and his wife, Queen Camilla, were joined by the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and Princess Anne and Sir Timothy Laurence for the celebration.
Harry and Meghan, of course, remained at their home in Montecito – but perhaps reflected on the occasion, which holds meaningful memories for them both.
It was at the service on 9 March 2020 that the Sussexes made their last public appearance as working members of the Royal Family.
It was the first time the couple had appeared with other members of the Royal Family since announcing their intention to “step back” as senior royals in January.
Harry and Meghan joined the Queen – then head of the Commonwealth – Charles, Camilla, William, and Kate in the central London church.
Last-minute changes meant the former ‘Fab Four’ were led straight to their seats – rather than waiting for the Queen and taking part in the procession as they did in 2019.
After the service, Harry and Meghan to return to their base in Canada, where their son, Archie, had remained during their UK trip.
Royal watchers are now speculating as to whether the couple will again cross the Atlantic to attend the King’s coronation on 6 May.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said: “I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation.
“An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time,” they added.
