Meghan Markle Joins Queen, Royal Family for Commonwealth Day Service

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTION: Meghan Markle has taken part in her first official engagement with Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family at the annual Commonwealth Day service, an annual interfaith ceremony, held at Westminster Abbey on Monday.
Markle joined members of the royal family including Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and the Duke of York. Later that day, the young royals — Prince William, the duchess, Prince Harry and Markle — were scheduled to attend a private reception.
The theme of this year’s service was “Towards a Common Future,” and focused on how the Commonwealth — an intergovernmental organization of 53 member countries that are former territories of the British Empire — can work to address worldwide issues such as sustainability, safety, prosperity and equality.
“Through exchanging ideas, and seeing life from other perspectives, we grow in understanding and work more collaboratively toward a common future,” said the Queen.
“There is a very special value in the insights we gain through the Commonwealth connection. Shared inheritances help us overcome difference, so that diversity is a cause for celebration rather than division. We shall see this in action at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which takes

Street Signs: Commonwealth Rises in the Arts District

It’s style, not fashion, Commonwealth seeks to serve under its roof as the streetwear specialty retailer marks a move to the Los Angeles Arts District.
The business, started by Omar Quiambao and Larry Incognito in 2004 as a concept shop with the tag line “For the Greater Good,” brings its street- and skate-inspired boutique to yet another growing pocket of the Arts District where Silverlake Wine, Guerrilla Tacos, Base Coat Nail Salon, CES Gallery and the Museum of Ice Cream all reside. Just footsteps away, Dover Street Market is expected in the spring.
The area reminds Quiambao of New York, where he last resided, and is close to where he now lives in downtown. Opening the 1,500-square-foot shop represents the first time he’s living in the same city as a Commonwealth store.
Quiambao, a graduate of Pratt Institute, has spent the better part of nearly two decades now being a purveyor of what those standing from the outside might call youth culture melded with skate and streetwear. Commonwealth’s brand of that lifestyle mixes high fashion with the street for a store that includes brands such as Pleasures, Wacko Maria, Brain Dead, Padmore & Barnes, Stone Island, APC and Comme des Garçons Play, among

Prince Harry Photobombs New Zealanders At Commonwealth Games

Forget fox hunting, polo and complaining about the press. The British royal family seems to have embraced a new hobby.

It’s photobombing, and Prince Harry is the latest to take part. Just check him out in the background of this photo, taken at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games:

From left to right, that’s rugby coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and sports psychologist and Massey University professor emeritus Gary Hermansson. But it’s the guy behind them that makes this picture so special.

Prince Harry was attending the event with Prince William, who can be spotted in the far right of the photo. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was seated to Prince William’s right, but you can only see a little of her hair in this image.

The royals are embracing the modern age of photography. Earlier this month, the two princes snapped a selfie with British entrepreneur Jamal Edwards.

And last week, the Queen herself got in on the act with an epic photobomb, also snapped at the Commonwealth Games.
