We saw her participate in her first royal engagement alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last week – when she took part in the inaugural Royal Foundation Forum – however tomorrow Meghan Markle is set to partake in her biggest royal event yet.

She will be joining The Queen at The Commonwealth Day service, which takes place at Westminster Abbey in celebration of the Commonwealth.

Also in attendance are expected to be her future husband (of course) Prince Harry, as well as other senior royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Charles.

The service, held annually, is the largest inter-faith gathering of people in the UK and is set to include a special performance by One Direction's Liam Payne.

The Commonwealth is an intergovernmental organisation made up of 53 member states which brings people together from countries around Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, Americas, Asia and the Pacific, and the theme of this year's Commonwealth Day celebration is 'Towards A Common Future'.

As the Commonwealth association explains: 'Towards a Common Future’ renews our Commonwealth vision and commitment to building on the individual and collective strengths of all member countries to respond to global challenges, and deliver a more prosperous, secure, sustainable and fair future for all of our citizens, particularly our young people.'

Ahead of the day, The Queen released this heartfelt message of thanks for the organisation.

'We all have reason to give thanks for the numerous ways in which our lives are enriched when we learn from others,' she said.

'Through exchanging ideas, and seeing life from other perspectives, we grow in understanding and work more collaboratively towards a common future.

'There is a very special value in the insights we gain through the Commonwealth connection; shared inheritances help us overcome difference so that diversity is a cause for celebration rather than division.'

With Meghan Markle already having expressed interest in working closely with the Commonwealth during her engagement interview, it seems clear that she and Harry will play a prominent role in the organisation in years to come.
