Meghan Markle stepped out for the Commonwealth Day church service at Westminster Abbey on Monday — one of royal family’s most formal events of the year.

The former actress arrived on the arm of her husband-to-be Prince Harry, looking typically put-together in a cream tailored by Amanda Wakeley and a matching beret by Stephen Jones. She accented the subdued ensemble with dark navy suede pumps and a mini navy leather bag.

And it wasn’t hard to see where she pulled her inspiration for the polished look!

Meghan, Harry, Kate and William stepped out in all their glory for the Commonwealth Day church service at Westminster Abbey on Monday.

The Duchess of Cambridge — who was also in attendance, alongside her husband Prince William — opted for top-to-toe navy in a dress and coat by Beulah London, a Lock & Co hat and the very same pair of suede court shoes.

Kate, who is expecting her third little prince or princess in just a matter of weeks, let her future sister-in-law shine during the proceedings as she took to the altar to sing the national anthem. The royal-to-be was also spotted nodding along to musical performances, including an upbeat number from former One Direction band member Liam Payne.

Meghan, Harry, Kate and William — a.k.a the awesome foursome — joined the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall for the church service. Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex also made up the royal party.

Following the event, the young royals spent some time with those who gathered from far and wide to catch a glimpse of their outing. They then attended a private reception for those involved in the event.

Following the church service, the awesome foursome chatted happily with those who had travelled to catch a glimpse of their royal outing.

Meghan’s attendance at the annual celebration is unprecedented given that she hasn’t yet joined the royal family — officially, that is. Her wedding to Prince Harry will take place on May 19 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

As Kensington Palace recently announced, following the ceremony, the newlyweds will undertake a tour of the town as their first trip as man and wife to greet well-wishers from all over the world who have come to see them.

It will no doubt remind fans of similar scenes that played out during Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s 2011 wedding.

There’s also speculation the 36-year-old might be walked down the aisle by none other than Prince William.

According to The Sun, Prince Harry’s big brother may step up for the important moment as Meghan’s two closest male relatives may not be at the royal wedding.

Apparently her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr didn’t receive an invite.

A royal insider said, “I think it is because he just can’t seem to keep his mouth shut. If he would quit talking to the media, Meghan would probably be more into the idea of inviting him.”

Meghan’s half brother Thomas Markle Jr is unlikely to be present at the wedding.

Meanwhile, another report claims that the actress’ dad Thomas Markle will not be giving her away.

“She’s also worried about how he would handle it as he’s become even more of a recluse,” a source voiced to The Star.

“Not to mention the fact that there has been some bad blood between Harry and Thomas after Harry made comments about her finally getting the family she never had.”

Meghan’s half-sister Samantha has previously shared that her dad will definitely step in and walk his daughter down the aisle… only time will tell.

Not long to go now!
