Meghan Markle's Buckingham Balcony Debut!

Share

Britain's Queen Elizabeth and members of the British royal family, look up at the RAF flypast from the balcony of Buckingham Palace as part of Trooping the Color parade in central London, June 9, 2018.

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

Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, she isWills and Kate's second child after Prince George.

Prince Philip, the Queen's husband, did not attend, having retired from public life a year ago.

Meghan was, of course, accompanied by her husband Prince Harry and while her outfit was very classy and she made sure to wear the obligatory hat, she also showed off her shoulders when all of the other women there had long-sleeved ensembles on. One only has to look at photos of the event to see that this isn't just a parade, it's an event filled with ceremonies and grandeur, and everything and everyone has their place.

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).

That Kate and Queen trip to Leicester came almost a year after her marriage to Prince William.

Lall, from Leicester, who came to the United Kingdom from India as a boy, said: "Being the first turban-wearing Sikh to troop the colour and be part of the escort is a high honour".

Meghan will undertake her first official engagement with the Queen next week when she joins Her Majesty on the royal train for a visit to Cheshire, in north-west England.

It's the ideal opportunity for Meghan to learn the royal ropes, as it were, from Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

George, who turns five in July, was just as excited as he watched the roaring fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

The Queen ditched the sunglasses she had been wearing since a recent cataract operation, the Daily Mail reported.

There were a few hiccups, as expected for someone still learning what it means to be a royal in appearance and attitude.

Doria, who was Meghan's only family member at the wedding, arrived at the chapel alone after earlier sharing Meghan's vehicle.
