Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend Trooping the Color ceremony

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first appearance together after their honeymoon on Saturday during the Trooping the Colour ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Earlier, the pomp and pageantry of Trooping the Colour was staged on Horse Guards Parade - a first for Meghan. Princess Anne, Prince Charles' sister, and Prince William were seen riding horseback in full military regalia.

It's the ideal opportunity for Meghan to learn the royal ropes, as it were, from Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

The Queen makes use of her official birthday to award honors to members of the public for their service to the nation.

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.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a dress by Carolina Herrera and a hat by Philip Treacy, while Kate wore a dress by Alexander McQueen and a hat by Juliette Botterill.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, Prince Louis, was noticeably absent from the event. She and Harry tucked themselves being the Queen in the back row, in the middle of the royal group but not the main focus, while the Queen's great-grandchildren entertained the crowds by playing, chatting and waving in the front row to the planes as they thundered overhead. The queen's husband, 96-year-old Prince Philip, has retired from royal duties.

Write Royalty, analysing details from the Court Circular, the official diary of the royal family, said the queen had conducted 125 engagements from January to the end of May.

The day's proceedings closed with an RAF flypast, which was watched by members of the royal family from Buckingham Palace's balcony.

Her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, attended the event with her past year, but was absent today.

Our eyes are peeled every year for the Duchess of Cambridge's outfit at Trooping the Colour - and now Duchess Meghan's, too - but as usual, the adorable young royals are up there on our best-dressed list once again! It originates from traditional battle preparations, where flags were "trooped" - ie carried - slowly through the ranks so they could be seen by all soldiers, so they could recognise them during combat.

Though it's not the first time Meghan has donned the tilted accessory, as she previously wore the powder pink hat at Prince Charles' 70th birthday celebrations with a sheer dress by London-based label Goat.
