It was the first time Meghan had attended the Remembrance Day event, after joining the royal family when she married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018.
Meghan's solo stint was interrupted when she 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 displacement of the two Duchesses was a slight against either of them.
According to People.com reporters Maria Pasquini and Simon Perry, there were practical limitations that led them to stand on seperate balconies.
“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.
