LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 11: The Duke and duchess of Cambridge stand with the duke and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex at Westminster Abbey for a Commonwealth day service on March 11, 2019 in London, England. Commonwealth Day has a special significance this year, as 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth, with old ties and new links enabling cooperation towards social, political and economic development which is both inclusive and sustainable. The Commonwealth represents a global network of 53 countries and almost 2.4 billion people, a third of the worlds population, of whom 60 percent are under 30 years old. Each year the Commonwealth adopts a theme upon which the Service is based. This years theme A Connected Commonwealth speaks of the practical value and global engagement made possible as a result of cooperation between the culturally diverse and widely dispersed family of nations, who work together in friendship and goodwill. The Commonwealths governments, institutions and people connect at many levels, including through parliaments and universities. They work together to protect the natural environment and the ocean which connects many Commonwealth nations, shore to shore. Cooperation on trade encourages inclusive economic empowerment for all people - particularly women, youth and marginalised communities.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton will team up for the first time since the summer as they take part in Remembrance Day ceremonies this weekend. The foursome are set to join other members of the royal family — including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and more — on Saturday for the Festival of Remembrance Service at Royal Albert Hall.

The royal brothers and their wives will get together again on Sunday for the Remembrance Sunday service at The Cenotaph.

This weekend’s reunion marks the first time Meghan, Harry, Kate and William have been seen together since July, when both families headed out for a polo day. While the princes competed in the charity match, Kate and Meghan enjoyed the summer weather with their children. (Kate kept busy chasing after Prince Louis, 1, as Prince George, 6, and Princess Charlotte 4, kicked around a soccer ball. Meanwhile, Meghan stayed under the shade of a tree with her son Archie in her arms.)

The two couples celebrated Archie’s christening just a few days earlier. Although it was a private event, Kate and William posed for a family portrait.

Meghan, Harry and Kate shared a horse-drawn carriage ride for Trooping the Colour in June (as colonel of the Irish Guards, William took part in the procession on horseback). The couples then joined other members of the royal family (including Kate and William’s three adorable kids!) on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the flypast.

Meghan, Harry, Kate and William also joined forces recently for a PSA video for mental health released last month.

“When they heard about it, all four of them were really keen to take part,” says a royal source. “It is a really positive project, and all four of them have been involved and they hope it will have a huge impact.”

The palace will not say when and where the recordings were made, but they took place at various places.

The two royal couples appeared at last year’s Festival of Remembrance Service at Royal Albert Hall as well as Remembrance Sunday.

During the solemn ceremony honoring those who lost their lives in World War I, Queen Elizabeth II, Kate and Camilla stood together at one balcony, while Meghan watched from the balcony of another window outside the Cenotaph war memorial in London.

As the balconies of each window are small, it’s nearly impossible to fit more than three or four women on each — and although Meghan didn’t join her family members, she was given a very important position of her own: she watched with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s wife, Elke Budenbender.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Prince Harry joined their father in laying wreaths of poppies.

The Duke of Sussex opened up about the rumored rift between him and his older brother in ITV’s documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

Speaking about the pressures of their jobs in the royal family, Harry said, “Inevitably stuff happens. But we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment. I’ll always be there for him and as I know, he’ll always be there for me. We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly.”

The royal dad of one added, “The majority of stuff is created out of nothing. As brothers, we have good days and we have bad days.”

In March, Meghan and Harry officially split from Kate and William, breaking up their joint “court” at Kensington Palace by creating two separate offices. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have since moved out of London to Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage – about 25 miles away – and launched their own Instagram page and charitable endeavor.

“It was only going to work until they married — and it went on a while longer than perhaps was originally thought,” one palace courtier previously told PEOPLE.
