"The only pity I reckon with Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, is I feel she is so intelligent and so good at public speaking, she's really strong in areas like girls' education and homelessness, poverty".

Clean Bandit star Grace Chatto brightened up an otherwise miserable afternoon as she donned a bright coloured dress for her performance at the Commonwealth Day Service earlier today.

If you're wondering what Meghan wore to last year's services (which was also Meghan's first engagement with the Queen!), she donned an Amanda Wakeley coat in cream, with a deep navy dress, navy suede pumps and a chic white beret by Stephen Jones. Kate, on the other hand, opted for a bold look with a red coat dress by Catherine Walker paired with a matching red fascinator.

The royal fab four - Kate, William, Harry and Meghan - reunited once again.

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the reports, but an insider did pay tribute to the PA.

The duchesses share a cuddle.

Meghan chose an all-green outfit for the gathering, including a coat with black beaded detailing on the cuffs and collar by Canadian designer Erdem.

Kate and Meghan looked stunning in red and white, respectively, and as classy as ever!

The service, celebrating Queen Elizabeth's lifetime commitment to the Commonwealth, was broadcast live on BBC One and the BBC World Service.

Canada is a special place for Meghan, who was living in Toronto to film Suits before moving to England to be with Harry.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth - a global network of 53 countries and nearly 2.4 billion people, a third of the world's population.

Once outside, while teetering gingerly on her high heels and gripping Harry's arm for balance, Meghan was given flowers by two Ottawa-born children whose parents work at Canada House.
