With Meghan Markle’s first balcony appearance, her new royal life truly begins

Stylish as ever, she opted for a "pretty in pink" vibe with a sophisticated off-the-shoulder pastel dress by Carolina Herrera - a favourite designer among the royals.

The couple later joined other members of the Royal Family on the palace's front balcony to watch the Royal Air Force fly by.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, paid tribute to Her Majesty Saturday at the annual birthday parade as the nation celebrated the monarch's 92nd birthday.

"For myself, being the first turban-wearing Sikh to troop the colour and to be part of the escort it is a really high honour for myself, and hopefully for everyone else as well", said Lall from Leicester, who came to the United Kingdom from India as a boy.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle also joined other senior royals at the event.

Trooping the Colour, staged every June by London's Horse Guards Parade, has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years.

Kate, taking a break from her maternity leave with Prince Louis after his April 23 birth, wore an Alexander McQueen dress with Juliette Botterill fascinator. He had a hip operation in April and retired from public life a year ago.

Bringing Prince Harry's new bride along with her is a "is a really positive sign of favour, encouragement and endorsement by the Queen", Robert Lacey, historical consultant for Netflix's "The Crown", tells People. It's a hairstyle choice that her sister-in-law, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, has learned-after much criticism-should not be used for such events, especially when the winds will play havoc.

Meghan also had her hair styled in a bouncy blowout.

Queen Elizabeth II also selected a blue ensemble, choosing a dress and hat in a bolder blue than the shade chosen by Middleton and Parker-Bowles. They are expected to travel to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
