Meghan Markle Joins Queen, Royal Family for Commonwealth Day Service

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

While Prince William and Kate Middleton are busy keeping Windsor family traditions alive, Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle are unafraid to break from protocol.

The fiancé of Prince Harry first tried the Buddhist practice during her time playing Rachel Zane on Suits, when a close friend introduced her to meditation expert and instructor Light Watkins, author of 'Bliss More - How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying'.

In the meantime, we're loving seeing more of Meghan Markle as she settles into her new royal life!

The accessory may also be a mark of respect to the Queen, perfectly timed with her first official appearance with the monarch at the Commonwealth Day service earlier today.

Markle, who was brought up Episcopalian, wasn't required to convert to her future husband's religion before their wedding, but the baptism was seen as a sign of respect to the star's future grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II, who is head of the Church that was founded by Henry VIII in 1534.

China says USA tariffs 'a serious attack' on global trade system
Trump announced last week that he would soon impose tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports. Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz called the agreement a "strong signal against protectionist pressures".

She had meant to ask her mother Doria to do the honours of accompanying her down the aisle but that didn't go down well with the royal family, the source said.

"This year we look together towards a common future, in which all can flourish and become what we are in the care and keeping of almighty God", he said.

A former SAS officer told the Daily Express the training will have "petrified" Markle even though she knew "the enemy was not real".

Aside from Payne's song, the services also included a performance of the British National Anthem by the congregation, a speech from Dr. John Hall, the dean of Westminster, a song by the Ngāti Rānana London Māori Club, spoken word by Jaspreet Kaur and a rendition of Paul Simon's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by the University of Portsmouth Gospel Choir.

But it seems likely that if the Royal's have their say, Meghan will be forced to let Prince William walk her down the aisle, as tradition states a male should be the one to give her away.

Markle showed up to the Commonwealth Day Service in a cream-colored coat by British designer Amanda Wakeley ($1,199; orchardmile.com) and a fashion accessory beloved by another member of the royal family.
