As Megxit finally takes place, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally made their last formal appearance as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for the annual Commonwealth Service in London.
With Prince Harry dressed in a navy blue suit and Meghan fully dressed in an emerald green Emilia Wickstead dress and fascinator, they made their way to the church, greeting all those they saw on their way while holding hands.
Their last formal appearance was quite uneventful and pretty simple as while inside the church they greeted church and government officials in health-safety method (all thanks to the Coronavirus), and then took their seat beside the Earl and Countess of Wessex and were later joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they awaited the Queen’s entrance. Unlike before where the senior members like the Sussexes and the Cambridge’s were part of the Queen’s procession, for their last appearance both Prince Harry and Meghan simply sat down at their designated seats as they obeyed the new change concerning the procession which neither the Neither Buckingham Palace or Kensington Palace commented on.
Their last appearance was relatively simple as they sat through choir performances, prayers, and a reading by the British Prime Minister — Boris Johnson. Everything was simple as they carried out their last duties for the crown and under its guidance and then finally, it was all over.
The last set of appearance and moments of the Sussex couple has been a sort of reminder to the world of the couple’s very unique position not just in the world but at the hearts of their millions of followers and sympathizers. From smiles and happiness displayed even under the rain at the Endeavour Fund Awards on Thursday and the radiant and stunning appearance of the couple at the Mountbatten Music Festival on Saturday, where Meghan had on a fire-engine-red dress by the London designer Safiyaa and was glowing and all radiant in many ways — these are definitely memories of the Sussex that even Megxit cannot erase because despite everything the couple has been through they have been the ultimate power couple standing strong together and upholding their love and beliefs.
As to what they will be up to now after Megxit is done and over it is very unknown. There are talks here and there of a charitable organization that will focus on supporting veterans, there are also talks of a production company and another talk of a base in Los Angeles where the couple will be socializing with American A-listers.
Whatever they will be up to, the world is quite curious to see how the couple will fend for themselves as they will be off the royal payroll and devoid of the institutional backing of Buckingham Palace. The question of what to be called is also there as Prince Harry is already getting his name “Harry” acquainted with the people without a title attached to it.
It will be a tough transition for sure, but the world will be watching and supporting the couple on their journey providing all the love and support they need.
