On Saturday, Meghan Markle appeared on the iconic Buckingham Palace balcony with her husband and the rest of the family to celebrate the Trooping the Colour event to mark the Queen's birthday.

Both Harry and Meghan have previously said that work in the Commonwealth will be a priority for them both. The tiny princess waved and squinted as she looked up at the sky to see the Royal Air Force's flypast.

THE entire royal family has turned out in London for a spectacular military parade to mark the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. While they posed and looked serene for the inevitable photo opp, they also took a couple of moments to chat warmly with one another and we'd die to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.

Kate definitely has a few mom tricks up her sleeve she can share with her younger sister, Pippa Middleton, who just confirmed she's expecting her first child with husband James Matthews.

Meghan Markle attended the annual Trooping the Colour celebration wearing a pale pink off-the-shoulder dress.

Watched by large crowds, the royals arrived in horse-drawn carriages as part of a procession.

The Queen soon made her entrance onto Horse Guards in an Ascot Landau after making her journey from her famous London home Buckingham Palace. Less than a month since tying the knot, these newlyweds will embark on their first royal tour, so find out if they're coming stateside.

Later on, the couple finally made it public with their engagement a year ago on November 27 and appeared for the first official interview after Prince Harry slammed public reports on racism and Meghan's past.

Meghan and Harry's trip falls on the occasion of the fourth Invictus Games, which will be staged in Sydney in October.

The 22-year-old from Leicester said: "I hope that people watching, that they will just acknowledge it and that they will look at it as a new change in history".

Write Royalty, analysing details from the Court Circular, the official diary of the royal family, said the queen had conducted 125 engagements from January to the end of May.

This weekend, The Sun reported that Meghan's bespoke Carolina Herrera off-the-shoulder dress, worn at Trooping the Colour, broke some of the Queen's rules, as "fashion tradition usually dictates that royal women do not wear off-shoulder or other more revealing styles".
