Meghan Markle made her official debut on the iconic balcony of Buckingham Palace on Saturday (June 9) during the Trooping the Colour celebrations to mark the Queen’s official birthday.
The Duchess of Sussex looked phenomenal as she showed off her post-honeymoon glow.
Meghan rode in a carriage alongside her husband Prince Harry, with Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall riding ahead of them.
For this occasion, Meghan opted to wear her hair down and chose a pale pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera with a matching hat by Irish milliner, Philip Treacy. Meghan also chose pink for her very first appearance as a royal following her wedding on May 22.
In addition to the Queen herself, Meghan was joined by new husband, Prince Harry, her in-laws, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance.
To mark the Queen’s 92nd birthday today, Harry wore his ceremony uniform of the Blues and Royals.
The entire royal family then gathered together on the balcony to watch in iconic fly-past by the Royal Air Force. Meghan’s first appearance on the balcony, which comes just weeks after she wed Prince Harry, is symbolic of how she has been welcomed into the royal family.
Next week, Meghan will join the Queen for their first solo outing together in Cheshire. The royal duo will travel by the Royal Train the night before their day-long engagement, which will include several appearances in Cheshire. The overnight stay on the Royal Train marks a major milestone, as only the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles use the royal ride in an official capacity.
