The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have joined Her Majesty The Queen and other Members of the Royal Family at Commonwealth Day events. 

The Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the UK and sees people from around the Commonwealth come together to celebrate the day. 

The Queen's work as Head of the Commonwealth is supported by other members of the Royal Family, who attend the service in addition to their own work around the Commonwealth through Commonwealth visits and charities. 

Led by the Dean of Westminster, the service encompasses traditional hymns and readings, with performances from artists around the Commonwealth and thought-provoking speeches from community leaders. The theme this year is 'Towards a Common Future', which emphasizes how the Commonwealth can address global challenges and work to create a better future for all citizens through sub-themes of sustainability, safety, prosperity and fairness.

As they left the Abbey, members of the Royal Family met those who had attended and taken part in the service. 

In the evening, The Prince of Wales, accompanied by The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke of Cambridge, attended a reception at Marlborough House on behalf of The Queen.

Their Royal Highnesses were guests of the Secretary-General of The Commonwealth and met attendees who were also marking Commonwealth Day.
