This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

As nearly everyone on planet Earth knows, Harry and Meghan announced in early January that they planned to step down as senior members of the royal family so they could live a more private life with their ten-month-old son, Archie Harrison.
The couple explained that after many months of reflection and internal discussions, they chose to make the transition this year so they could start to carve out a new progressive role in the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that they wanted to work to become financially independent and split their time between the UK and North America.
While Queen Elizabeth did amend the couple’s original plan, they were allowed to step down as senior royals and move to Canada. They made their final appearances as working royals earlier this month, and Megxit will officially happen on March 31st. There is a one-year transition period while the royal family works out Harry and Meghan’s financial support and security arrangements.
According to the insider, Markle now has “a real spring in her step again” now that royal life is behind her. “It’s wonderful to see her in top form,” said the source.

They claimed that Markle “felt trapped and claustrophobic” when she was living at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry, and it led to panic attacks.
“She was nervous to step outside her own front door because of all the negative attention she attracted,” said the insider.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in isolation in Canada where they plan to stay amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement on March 20th, the couple said that it is perfectly normal to feel bored or not know what to do with yourself without your normal routine.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex added that our emotional well-being is challenged everyday whether we realize it or not, but our lives are filled with distractions. Now, with constantly changing COVID coverage, everyone is adjusting to this “new normal and the feelings that come with it.”
