As part of the day's pomp, almost 1,000 soldiers march to Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Air Force performs a flyover (which the royals famously watch each year from the balcony at Buckingham Palace). Members of the royal family typically cover their shoulders at royal events.

It was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first public appearance since their honeymoon.

The couple will follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry's parents, Charles and Diana, whose first overseas tour after their marriage also took in Australia and New Zealand.

Camilla Parker Bowles, Princess Charlotte (who stole the show alongside Prince George in a recycled blue frock), and Queen Elizabeth II also all wore matching shades of ice blue, the Queen's by her own dressmaker, Stewart Parvin.

Royal newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly signed a lease for a converted cowshed to be used for weekend escapes to the Cotswolds.

Others, however, were quick to rush to her defense saying that Meghan was bringing a fresh look to the usual "stuffy" royal etiquette.

The large crowd roared as the royals waved on during the Trooping of the Colour on the Queen's official birthday.

Prince Harry, who served with the British army in Afghanistan, was the first member of the Royal family to enter a combat zone since 1982.

In more royal news, friends and family of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can't seem to stop raving over the wedding.

During their peaceful stay, Prince Harry bonded with Ben who happens to be former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's son.

"Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries' respective governments".

"Both of us have passions for wanting to make change, change for good, and, you know, with lots of young people running around the commonwealth, that's where we'll spend most of our time hopefully", Harry said shortly after the couple's engagement was announced in November.

He created the Paralympic-style games in 2014 as a way to inspire wounded soldiers toward recovery.
