Meghan Markle won’t be seen in public again until the royal baby is born – after making final appearance at Commonwealth service with Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Sussex, who is eight months pregnant, attended the Commonwealth Day church service on Monday alongside Kate Middleton, and the pair put 'feud' rumours behind them as they greeted each other with a cheek kiss.

Kensington Palace confirmed that while Meghan still has plenty of private meetings in the diary, she won't be attending public royal engagements as she prepares for labour.

While the 'Fab Four' are likely to still see each other behind closed doors, the Commonwealth service was Kate and Meghan's last chance to end rift rumours before the birth of baby Sussex.

According to a palace insider, the kiss initiated by the Duchess of Cambridge was a deliberate move to show solidarity between Kate and Meghan before her due date.

A source told Vanity Fair: "Kate has no issue with Meghan. She wants them to get along not just for Harry's sake, but because two royal sister-in-laws at loggerheads wouldn't be good."


Relations between the four are thought be be better than ever as Harry and Meghan prepare to move out of Kensington Palace, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also live.

The expectant parents are set to move in to Frogmore Cottage, on the Queen's Windsor estate, before Meghan's due date next month.

While this means the 'Fab Four' will be less likely to do joint appearances both privately and in public, Kate is said to have been regularly in touch with Meghan.

Another source said: "Harry and Meghan want to leave on good terms, and Kate especially has been making a real effort.

"Kate was keen to put an end to the rift rumours and she has made it clear to Meghan that she's there for advice or whatever Meghan might need."

After the birth, it is unknown when Meghan will return to public engagements, but it is thought that she and husband Harry will begin attending events as a family unit without the Cambridge's guidance.
