The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made their first public appearance with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge since Harry and Meghan opened up about their struggles in an emotional television documentary.

The couples both attended the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night, alongside the Queen, the Prince of Wales and other senior members of the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Cornwall was also present, after she had been forced to pull out of engagements earlier in the week due to ill health.

The service marked the first time the Sussexes and Cambridges have appeared in public together following Harry and Meghan's candid on-screen chat with ITV News At Ten anchor Tom Bradby.

In the documentary, filmed during the Sussexes' recent official visit to southern Africa, Harry said he and brother William are now "on different paths" and have "good days" and "bad days" in their relationship.

The service at the Royal Albert Hall was also attended by the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

This year's event marks 75 years since notable battles of 1944, including Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the collaboration of Commonwealth and Allied forces.

It also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Government Communications Headquarters, and pays tribute to RFA Mounts Bay which this year delivered supplies and aid to the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian.

The ceremony is hosted by the Royal British Legion and commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.
