In episode five of Harry & Meghan, now streaming on Netflix, the Duke of Sussex, 38, revisited the "farewell week" he and wife Meghan Markle had in England in March 2020 after it was confirmed they would be stepping back from their senior royal roles. Harry said the stay was a "whirlwind" as they packed back-to-back engagements into a few short days. The week wrapped with the most visible engagement of all — reuniting with the rest of the royal family for the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. It was Harry and Meghan's last official outing before moving to North America, and their first public reunion with Queen Elizabeth, then-Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex since they announced they were stepping back as working royals.
