Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, color-blocked in a red Catherine Walker coat paired with a red fascinator.

Meghan, the Duchess of Cambridge, paired her white coat, reportedly by designer Victoria Beckham, with a white fascinator.

The sisters-in-law joined their spouses, Prince William and Prince Harry, at Westminster Abbey for a Commonwealth Day Service with Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen, dressed in a purple coat and hat, was also joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Andrew at the service, which celebrates the 53 Commonwealth countries around the world.

Prior to the service, Prince Harry and Meghan, wearing an embellished green coat dress reportedly by Erdem, made a visit to Canada House in London.

The couple, who are expecting their first child next month, joined kids making maple taffy, a Canadian tradition, and met with young Canadians working in fashion, the arts, business and education, according to Kensington Palace.

The expectant parents also received baby gifts of boots and a onesie featuring a maple leaf.

Meghan, who lived in Canada for several years while filming “Suits,” was named on Friday, International Women’s Day, as vice president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, an organization that supports and connects young leaders. Harry was named Commonwealth Youth Ambassador last year by Queen Elizabeth.
