Meghan Makes Buckingham Palace Balcony Debut with Queen Elizabeth

Since her 2011 Trooping the Colour debut, Kate Middleton has never worn short sleeves, and neither did Princess Diana.

Their two duchesses' husbands, Prince William, 35, and Prince Charles, 69, rode on horseback in the procession, which honours the Queen's official birthday.

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.

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 past year, and finally, a lunch at the Chester Town Hall.

The Queen looked on as the celebrations for her birthday took place on the Mall in central London.

Every year, the United Kingdom honors Queen Elizabeth's birthday with the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony which is one of the most spectacular royal events of the year.

Savannah Phillips and Prince George of Cambridge watch the flypast on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping The Color on June 9, 2018 in London.

Camilla wore a pale blue silk dress and coat by Bruce Oldfield and a hat by Philip Treacy.

Of course, the littlest royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte also made an appearence on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the traditional RAF fly-past.

This is the first time the royal family were joined by the new Duchess of Sussex. It's only been a few weeks since the Suits star exchanged vows with Prince Harry, but inside sources claim that the actress is having trouble adjusting to her new life in the UK.

The couple postponed their honeymoon by several days to attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace in honor of Prince Charles three days after their spectacular wedding last month.

"I'm quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well", he was quoted as saying by the BBC.
