The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are celebrating World Commonwealth Day in London today. The couple paid a visit to Canada House in Trafalgar Square to celebrate “the diverse community of Canadians living around the UK”, confirmed Kensington Palace.
The visit will include a meet-and-greet with young Canadians living in London (from a wide range of sectors including fashion, the arts, business and academia), a musical performance, a short speech by High Commissioner Janice Charette and a demonstration of how to make taffy – a Canadian spring tradition.

Appropriately for the occasion, Meghan wore a forest green swing coat by London-based Canadian-born designer Erdem, which featured delicate black embroidery across it.
The coat was the opening look to Erdem’s autumn/winter 2019 show which took place just last month in London; meaning that it won’t be available to purchase until later this year.
