Sikh soldier becomes first to wear turban at royal ceremony

The royal has been undergoing riding lessons ahead of the event where he rode on horseback behind The Queen's carriage alongside Prince Charles, Prince William and Princess Anne. From the beginnings of her relationship with Prince Harry, the former actress wore what made her feel comfortable, ignoring those tedious royal fashion rules.

For the prestigious ceremony - which marks Queen Elizabeth II's 92nd birthday - was the ideal opportunity for the former actress to demonstrate her sartorial prowess and she didn't disappoint.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who just returned from their Honeymoon were spotted at the ceremony as Meghan opted for a pale pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera with a matching hat by Philip Treacy.

This year the ceremony, which is staged every June in London's historic Horse Guards Parade, will see the Colour of the 1st Battalion the Coldstream Guards being trooped.

In an unexpected turn of events, the 7-year-old was seen dancing on the Buckingham Palace balcony and faux conducting the national anthem, as the royal family awaited the 1pm fly-over.

Putin gets some love from Xi and Trump

The members of the royal family - yes, including now Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex - stepped out on Saturday in London for the annual Trooping the Colour parade, the official celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

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 previous year, and finally, a lunch at the Chester Town Hall. But now that Prince Philip, 97 on Sunday, has retired, she's taking relatives more and more frequently. Eugenie, 28, meanwhile, looked lovely in emerald green, also opting for statement headwear - with a pretty floral embroidered hat to complete her look.

The royals watched a fly-past undertaken by the Royal Air Force.

As she stood in front of Kate Middleton and Prince William waving, the little royal appeared to stumble backwards - as if she fell off a small step she was standing on.

Meghan is fitting right in.
