The 36-year-old humanitarian, who has been busy gearing up for her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, attended her first royal public event alongside Her Majesty on Monday at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.

American actress Meghan looked stylish in a dress and coat by Amanda Wakeley and hat by Stephen Jones. Beauty-wise, she wore her brunette hair down in loose waves, while a smokey eye and natural lipstick completed her look.

Meghan Markle was kidnapped and held as a hostage by the SAS in an exercise to prepare her for potential terror attacks.

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. Duchess Kate was in an all-navy blue outfit and large wide-brimmed hat (hats are de rigeur for royals at important church services).

The course is aimed at ensuring Meghan is prepared for all possible emergencies as a member of the Royal Family, the Express reports.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently greeted crowds during their trip to Birmingham, and Meghan was spotted wearing a diamond cross bracelet - which is believed to represent her recent confirmation.

Dropbox aims to raise $648m in forthcoming IPO
Drew Houston, the founder and CEO of Dropbox, at the annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference in 2016 in Sun Valley, Idaho. The company will sell $100 million worth of shares to Salesforce .com's venture arm at the same time of its IPO.

The service, which is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the United Kingdom, is held every year to celebrate the Queen's lifetime commitment to the Commonwealth as Head of its 53 countries. Liam Payne, meanwhile, gave a performance at the celebratory event.

The Queen became head of the Commonwealth at the age of 26.

William faced criticism previous year when he missed the service to attend his controversial lads-only skiing holiday in Verbier.

The theme for this year's service is Towards a Common Future, emphasising how the Commonwealth can address global challenges and work to create a better future for all citizens through the sub-themes of sustainability, safety, prosperity and fairness.
