Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have commemorated Anzac Day at a war memorial Dawn Service in London.

The 36-year-old former actress and her 33-year-old fiancé looked sombre as they listened intently to the speakers, as those who lost their lives at war were honoured at the Wellington Arch Australian War Memorial.

Dressed in a wide-brimmed black hat, a black dress and a light grey winter coat, Meghan sang along to hymns while looking at the lyrics in a service booklet.

The bride-to-be also wore a single poppy badge on the left lapel of her coat, as a sign of honour, along with a simple pair of black heels.

When the 45-minute service came to an end, Prince Harry laid a wreath to mark the day, on behalf of the Queen.

“In loving memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice and the many whose lives were changed forever. Harry,” the card on the wreath read.

Then both he and Meghan signed a commemoration book at the war memorial in what is believed to be the first time the future Duchess has officially penned her name in public.

The couple’s outing comes just weeks before they are set to walk up the aisle and say ‘I do’.

On May 19th, Windsor will come to a standstill when Meghan and Harry tie the knot, with thousands of people expected to line the streets to catch a glimpse of the couple.
