Just three weeks after their wedding, newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended Trooping the Colour on Saturday in London. The event is held annually on the second Saturday of June to mark Queen Elizabeth’s official birthday. 

Three carriages led the procession across London, the first with Camilla and Kate, the second carrying Prince Harry and Meghan, and the third, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a custom two-piece set by Carolina Herrera, breaking royal protocol again as the top was an off-the-shoulder piece. She completed the look with a shiny blowout, rather than her usual messy bun. 

Then came the time for Meghan’s first time on the balcony as she joined the entire royal family to watch the traditional fly-past by the Royal Air Force. The new Duchess is hard at work, marking sure to fit in with the royal family. While they were on the balcony, Meghan said to Harry, “say when” with regards to curtsying, to which he replied “now”, helping that Meghan to be in perfect timing with the rest of the family.

Next week Meghan will join the Queen for their first solo public commitment together.
