Meghan Markle Makes Debut on Buckingham Palace Balcony With Royal Family

Prince George and Princess Charlotte did what they do best - steal the attention from all the other royals at this year's Trooping the Colour.

Despite the fact that Meghan Markle is now a member of the British Royal family and that comes with a lot of rules and restrictions, especially in public, the former actress is not too anxious about following royal protocol a hundred percent. The Queen turned 92 on her actual birthday on April 21.

The British monarch celebrated her official 92nd birthday with the Trooping the Colour at Whitehall's Horse Guards Parade.

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, take part in the Trooping the Colour parade in central London, Britain, June 9, 2018.

The Queen, dressed in a powder-blue ensemble and hat with flowers on the brim, was travelling alone, as her husband Prince Philip, who will celebrate his 97th birthday today, has retired from public life.

Seeking inspiration from sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge's 2017 fuschia-hued look, the 36-year-old opted for a blush pink skirt suit and scored serious style points in the process. In turn, the royal family is making it clear that she is very much a senior member of the family.




In Cheshire, they'll undertake classic royal duties: opening a bridge, officially cutting a ribbon at a cultural centre that's actually been going since previous year, and finally, a lunch at the Chester Town Hall.

Queen Elizabeth opted for a blue sky blue coat and dress by designer Stewart Parvin and a hat by Angela Kelly while Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, wore a pale blue dress by Bruce Oldfield and Hat by Philip Treacy.

Then it was back to Buckingham Palace for her inaugural balcony appearance. It originates from traditional battle preparations, where flags were "trooped" - ie carried - slowly through the ranks so they could be seen by all soldiers, so they could recognise them during combat.

However, the Buckingham Palace balcony appearance after the parade wasn't her first - as royal watchers will recall, she and Wills exchanged a kiss at that exact spot on their wedding day.

Before the ceremony, Lall said he was "quite proud" of himself and knew other people were proud of him as well.
