Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have begun their duties as senior members of the royal family this morning, attending the morning Remembrance Day service with the Queen and other high-ranking family members. Kate and Meghan were both photographed on the balcony of the Cenotaph wearing black coats and poppy pins (the poppy is worn to honor those who have died in the line of duty during World War I and since).

Meghan was on a different balcony than Kate, the Queen, and Camilla. She was positioned beside the first lady of Germany, Elke Büdenbender. Kate would usually join Meghan on this balcony, Hello! pointed out, but because the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, skipped today’s festivities, Kate took his place on the Queen’s balcony.
