Markle joined her fiancé Prince Harry, her future in-laws Kate Middleton and Prince William, her future father-in-law Prince Charles, and her future grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth for her biggest royal event yet, and it went off without a hitch.

The event at Westminster Abbey will be a public acknowledgement by the Queen of the United States actress, who will soon be joining her family when she marries Prince Harry on May 19.

It was part of Markle's on-going preparation for joining the royal firm, which has included multiple engagements on the "meet Meghan" trail and an appearance, with the queen, at the royal family's annual Christmas service at Sandringham.

Meghan Markle has officially stepped out with Queen Elizabeth II!

The Commonwealth Day service this afternoon will also be attended by the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and the Prime Minister.

The event celebrates the Queen's commitment to the Commonwealth, which is made up of almost 2.4 billion people across 53 countries.

"But, you know, after an opponent like this, to come back from two breaks down, actually, for me it was nearly impossible". Djokovic was makings his first appearance since being stunned by Hyeon Chung at the Australian Open.

"Having enjoyed the warm hospitality of so many Commonwealth countries over the years, I look forward to the pleasure of welcoming the leaders of our family of 53 nations to my homes in London and Windsor", the queen said in a statement.

Meghan and Harry are set to tie the knot in St George's Chapel in Winsdor Castle in May, and it was previously reported that the brunette beauty has been turning to Harry's step-mother Duchess Camilla for support.

Markle was wearing a long white coat fastened only at the waist with a small round beret-style hat in white perched on the side of her head.

The queen wore a wine-colored coat and matching hat, along with a large diamond brooch.

He said: "We hope the younger royals like William, Catherine, Harry and Meghan will recognise the vast persecution suffered by LGBT people in the Commonwealth and speak out as they have on many social issues".
