A turban-wearing soldier of the Coldstream Guards became the first Sikh soldier to figure in the widely watched traditional Trooping the Colour ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Saturday, the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth.

So while Meghan stood in the front row to watch the Queen and royal colonels (Charles, William, Andrew and Anne) return to the palace with their troops, she took a more protected position during the longer, most famous part of the balcony tradition: the flypast by the Royal Air Force.

The British monarch celebrated her official 92nd birthday with the Trooping the Colour at Whitehall's Horse Guards Parade.

Markle looked stunning in a blush dress by Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera, which she paired with a flat-brimmed hat in the same shade.

The Trooping of the Colour also marks Prince Harry and Meghan's first public outing since they appeared at Prince Charles' early birthday celebration at Buckingham Palace only three days after exchanging vows at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who married last month, arrived as part of the carriage procession.

Prince Philip, who turns 97-years-old tomorrow, was absent from today's proceedings but was no doubt watching his son take up the reigns from home.

The three-year-old was comforted by Duchess Kate, 36, who offered some reassuring words and patted her back.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge were in another carriage while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her daughter Lady Louise.

Prince Philip, who retired from royal duties previous year, did not attend the military parade.

"My mum was crying on the day I passed out, so I wonder what is going to happen to her when she sees me in this".

Together George and Charlotte conspired to steal the show - per usual.
