How the Queen has taken Meghan Markle under her wing

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry arrived for the 2018 Trooping the Colour ceremony which marks the official birthday of the sovereign state, making it their first public appearance since their marriage at the Windsor Chapel last month.

Prince Charles' former butler Grant Harrold explains that new members of the royal family, such as Meghan Markle, learn royal etiquette by watching practiced members.

About 1,000 soldiers marched to House Guards Parade in Whitehall, central London, as part of the ceremony, which marked Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday. Of course, Meghan looked totally stunning in her outfit, and we have a feeling this rule isn't too seriously enforced; after all, her wedding gown was slightly off-the-shoulder too.

Kate Middleton and Prince William's 4-year-old son was his usual rowdy self at the Trooping the Colour parade on Saturday, but this time, he may have been out-sassed by his cousin. Following this, Prince Harry also spent quality time with the Mulroney's three kids, Brian, John, and Isobel.

Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle will spend two days in Fiji towards the end of October.

She rode in a horse-drawn carriage along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade with mother-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who wore a pale blue silk dress and jacket by Bruce Oldfield, with Philip Treacy also providing her headwear.




Prince Harry created and is the patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which runs the tournament, and has previously attended the games in other host cities.

Yesterday was a very big day for the royal family, but especially for the Duchess of Sussex.

The Games also hold extra significance for the royal couple; they made their first public appearance together at the 2017 Games in Toronto, Canada.

Appearing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for special events is a royal tradition that goes back to 1851 when, according to the official royal website, Queen Victoria stepped out during celebrations to mark the opening of the Great Exhibition.

As a pre-wedding gift to the prince, the Queen appointed her grandson a Commonwealth youth ambassador, his most high profile role to as a royal to date.
