IIRC this is the first and only time the couple have ever attended church with the Queen- not including the Christmas services

Nice to see them attend church with the queen. I could imagine them perhaps having lunch with her after. Great that they spend some personal time not just the commonwealth event, with his grandmother.

When one is i the 90s, you have no idea if they will get the opportunity to ever meet again or not.

Or in their 80's, 70's or any age for that matter. You never know what matters.

Not everyone lives close to their grandparents. Harry will likely see more of his grandparents then majority of people out there. I saw my grandparents once a year if lucky before they died. It seems Harry is being held to different 'visit your grandma' standards then anyone else because grandma is the queen.

Really nice that the Sussexes went to church with HM this morning! I'm sure it was a welcome visit from her.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not take part in the Queens Procession today at Westminster Abbey. They will go straight to their seats.

Diplomatic way to avoid any awkwardness and to focus on the service itself.
Sounds fair ...

Rumour is that William and Catherine are also not doing the procession either...

Hmm. Interesting about the Cambridge. What are the chances the the four of them enter together like they did in the past? A parting shot of the "Fab Four".

Really surprised since the Cambridges are listed in the program.

The Wessexes are also not taking part, the procession will now only be The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

However I like your idea.

They did that in 2018. Cambridges and Sussexes entered together. That year Andrew, Anne, and Sophie were also in attendance. Only Charles and Camilla walked.

Interesting if they decided that again. It was said by the press that the amended occurred last night but the programs were already printed. So wonder why they decided to not have the Cambridges walk as well.

Maybe they met yesterday evening for dinner at KP / windsor or CP and decided that.

So when the royals arrive, they wait for The Queen who arrives last, and process (walk) up the main aisle as a group to their seats. Itís now been decided that the Sussexes, Cambridgeís and Wessexes will not process. They will go straight to their seats and not wait for The Queen. As ACO says this happened in 2018, itís not good bad or indifferent really.

From what I read this morning it seems they attended because there was a bit of a memorial service for a member of the military taking place and this soldier's father happened to work for the Queen at Windsor for a number of years. Admittedly I didn't read the article in depth because, well, no time for that when the office phone is ringing off the hook with questions about school closures due to coronavirus now hitting our state but it does seem as though they attended because Harry had some part in that service rather than just to spend time with HM.
