Prince Harry has unexpectedly accompanied Kate Middleton to a commemoration service in central London.
Kensington Palace announced last week that Kate would be attending the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey today along with the Duke of Gloucester, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II.
However, this morning, the royal family social media pages announced that Prince Harry would also be attending the traditional church service.
Royal correspondent Rebecca English revealed on Twitter that Harry had previously not been included on the service as attending in case his baby was born.
I’ve been told: ‘He is pleased he can attend today’s Service, as planned.- Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) April 25, 2019
‘With their baby due, his name was not printed in the programme in case he was unable to do so.’
Suggests no sign of #BabySussex quite yet, then!
Harry made his way into the Abbey with sister-in-law Kate, who wore a turquoise blue coat and matching fascinator. The pair - who famously have a close bond - were seen smiling and chatting as they made their way into the venue.
Anzac Day is an annual day of commemoration to mark service men and women from Australia and New Zealand who have died in wars.
The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, is currently visiting New Zealand. Earlier in the day, he laid a wreath to mark the country's public holiday along with the Prime Minister Jacinda Arden.
During his visit, William has also met with victims of the Christchurch terror attack. As well as meeting emergency service members who had come to the aid of the victims, he visited a hospital where he spoke with five-year-old Alen Alsati who woke from a coma this week after being injured in the attack.

Meghan Markle, did not attend the service today, like she did last year, as she is on maternity leave.
