  • Megan Markle just dyed her hair red

On Monday, the royal family attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in London.

(Her hat, a less traditional style and not her usual, is by Lock & Co.) Markle acknowledged photographers as she entered Westminster Abbey, as Ghanaian drummers played upon their arrival.

Elizabeth has been head of the Commonwealth since 1952 and aides say she regards the success of the organization, which now has 53 members representing over 2.4 billion people, as one of her greatest achievements as queen.

During her visit to Birmingham with Prince Harry on Thursday, Meghan was seen showing off a delicate diamond bracelet, worn on her left wrist, which is widely believed to be a baptism gift.

In her message to the gathering, Queen Elizabeth praised the value of "exchanging ideas and seeing life from other perspectives". Back in January, the 36-year-old stepped out for a day of engagements with Prince Harry in Cardiff wearing the classic Prince of Wales check in an off-the-shoulder jacket by Theory.

Liam Payne, Ghanaian drum collective One-Drum and spoken word artist Jaspreet Kaur are among those due to perform.

The 'Old' Taylor Swift Makes A Dazzling Comeback In 'Delicate' Music Video
The singer popped up on social media last week to quickly and casually announce the video's release. Despite the song " Delicate " sounding serious, the music video is more comedic.

The Daily Star has reported that Meghan's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr, who was accused of putting a gun to his girlfriend's head during a row past year, did not get an invite to the wedding.

Kate Middleton wore a navy Beulah coat with a Lock and Co. hat, while Markle donned a white Amanda Wakeley coat and matching hat. Her playful interpretation of the British accessory staple was refreshing and unexpected; lest we forget, Diana was known for reimagining royal dress codes, too.

Meghan is set to marry Prince Harry in Windsor on 19 May.

Markle told well-wishers she is "very excited" about her upcoming nuptials.

The former Suits star also remarked on the "beautiful" service while speaking to a religious education teacher from Newcastle, adding that she had especially enjoyed the music.
