Thousands in London for Trooping the Colour spectacle

Thousands in London for Trooping the Colour spectacle

Prince Harry's new wife Meghan Markle was pretty in pink and appeared to break royal protocol again with her outfit at her first Trooping the Colour parade, where she made her Buckingham Palace debut.

The members of the royal family - yes, including now Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex - stepped out on Saturday in London for the annual Trooping the Colour parade, the official celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

Prince George wore a smart white shirt for the occasion, with his blonde hair tidily brushed to one side, while his younger sister Charlotte sported a cute baby blue dress for the occasion, matching her mother Kate Middleton who wore a similar ensemble.

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.

Next week, reports People, Meghan will join the Queen for their first solo outing together when they'll travel overnight on the Royal Train for a day-long engagement in Cheshire. The layers on the shoulders and the big-sized buttons made for catchy details, and Meghan spilled her iconic panache as she sat next to Prince Harry.

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan's Future Daughters May Not Inherit Titles
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's future daughters won't be known as princesses - unless the Queen steps in to change it. The Queen and Meghan will be heading from London to Cheshire, for a series of three engagements on Thursday 14th June.

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

All eyes have been glued on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ever since the two got engaged previous year.

The parade and ceremony was the first official royal event following the nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who just recently returned from their honeymoon, that the entire British monarchy attended.

They watched as this year's colour, the flag of the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, was trooped on Horse Guards, Henry VIII's former jousting yard. But now that Prince Philip, 97 on Sunday, has retired, she's taking relatives more and more frequently. Expect to see Meghan at a carefully chosen selection of them as she continues her introduction to her new life as a senior royal.
