    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.

    What did he say about Meghan and Harry?

    Omid added, ‘I don’t even think Harry and Meghan, who by their own account struggled with the realities of the situation, expected things to turn out the way they did.’

    ‘I’ve been on so many engagements and around them as much as possible, and spoken to so many people in their lives, so no stone has been left unturned.

    ‘I’ve seen the couple remain faithful in their own beliefs and stand strong in the face of adversities which have been publicly played out in the press.

    ‘And I would like to think this tells the definitive version of their lives together.’

    The biography is co-authored by royal reporter Carolyn Durand and is being published by Harper Collins.

    On its website, it states that ‘few know the true story’ of the couple.
