Meghan appeared on the balcony overlooking the Cenotaph in London in the morning, as wreaths were laid in remembrance.
However, she was segregated from the rest of the royal family when she stood by a different window balcony.
In contrast, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge were seen standing together on the same platform during the ceremony.
Meghan was eventually joined by Elke Büdenbender, the wife of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
At the time, fans were confused, however the placement didn't necessarily mean the Duchess was slighted by the other royals.
According to People.com reporters Maria Pasquini and Simon Perry, there were also practical limitations.
“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,” they said at the time.
On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid their respects to those who gave their lives in battle at a Remembrance Day service in Westminster.
The couple stood for a two-minute silence to remember those who have died in service of their country, and then led the proceedings and planted wooden crosses in the Field of Remembrance.
The Field will be filled with crosses over the coming days, each of which represents a member of the Armed Forces who has given their life in service of their country.
The Duke, wearing his military uniform, saluted and paid his respects to the fallen, before walking back in the small crowd.
Meghan then followed, also planting her cross and lowering her head as sign of respect.
This was the first time Meghan had joined Harry at the Field of Remembrance.
