The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared on the balcony behind Queen Elizabeth II with the rest of the Royal Family to celebrate the Queen's 92nd birthday.

Their two duchesses' husbands, Prince William, 35, and Prince Charles, 69, rode on horseback in the procession, which honours the Queen's official birthday. So, three weeks after her wedding, which was followed by an outing at a Buckingham Palace garden party for the charities and organizations tied to Prince Charles, who turns 70 this year, Meghan is now plunging-carefully and deliberately-into royal life.

Meghan looked chic in a dress by Carolina Herrera and a hat by Philip Treacy, while Kate was stylish in an Alexander McQueen dress and a hat by Juliette Botterill.

Princess Charlotte was having the best time on Saturday during her balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour when she suddenly had a little accident which made her burst into tears.

When the family gathered on the Buckingham Palace balcony at 1pm to watch the now-famous fly-over, Meghan could be seen chatting away to Camilla Parker-Bowles.


The 92-year-old queen, whose real birthday is April 21, seemed vigorous as she keenly observed the event.

Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of central London as the Queen made her way in a horse-drawn carriage down The Mall for the centuries-old Trooping the Colour parade. Flags, or colors, were "trooped" so soldiers in the ranks would be able to recognize them. She was christened in Sandringham shortly after, and has been a regular fixture during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official visits. The Coldstream Guards usually wear the iconic bearskin hats - but Guardsman Charanpreet Singh Lall, who was taking part in the ceremony for the first time, wore a black turban with a ceremonial cap star to fit in with his fellow soldiers.

The ceremony culminates with a magnificent balcony appearance by the Royal Family.

Prince Philip, who turns 97 today, did not attend the celebrations. Eugenie, 28, meanwhile, looked lovely in emerald green, also opting for statement headwear - with a pretty floral embroidered hat to complete her look.
