This time last year Meghan Markle may have been sitting at home in Canada with her dogs but now she’s representing the royal family by singing God Save the Queen at official events.

The 37-year-old pregnant Duchess of Sussex attended the Royal Variety Performance with Prince Harry in London on Monday night.

And before the festivities could begin, the couple stood tall and proud on the royal balcony to belt out the national anthem, God Save the Queen.

Meghan and Harry sang their way through the whole song, before they sat through performances by Take That, George Ezra and Rick Astley.

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a a $1500 monochrome Safiyaa London sequin top and $1000 long black mermaid skirt by the same brand.

Her hair was styled in a sleek bun and she accessorised with a glittery clutch bag and her Birks Snowstorm diamond earrings, worth $12,400.

Upon arrival, she went straight over to speak to a little girl who had been standing waiting for her, who gave the Duchess a teddy bear and a card for her unborn baby.

Harry donned a black tux for the occasion, as they met this year’s stars before the show.

The annual Royal Variety Performance takes place every year and is held in aid of the Royal Variety Charity (RVC), of which the Queen is a Patron.

The money raised from the show helps hundreds of entertainers throughout the UK, who are in need of help and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health, or hard times.

In particular, the charity assists former members of the entertainment industry living in Brinsworth House, a residential home in Twickenham, which is owned and run by the charity.
