Meghan Markle makes first appearance since honeymoon to celebrate the Queen’s birthday

Royal Family

GETTYDespite fooling thousands of spectators many rumours about the Royal Family are nothing but myths

The annual ceremony to mark Queen Elizabeth II's birthday takes place every June, and sees both British and Commonwealth armed forces come together for the display. She and new-husband Prince Harry were picture-perfect, as Harry chose to wear his Household Cavalry Number 1 ceremonial military uniform. Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's adorable three-year-old slipped and fell down, hitting her head on the railing.

The former Suits star looked quite at home during the parade as she waved and smiled alongside her prince charming. When it was Kate's first turn, after her wedding in 2011, she couldn't help but say "Wow" as she caught her first glimpse at the huge crowds gathered at the palace gates.

The Royal Family has made no official statement on the couple's honeymoon.

While they appeared at a private Buckingham Palace garden party three days after they Wednesday, Saturday afternoon's outing was the first time the former actress has been on full show as a royal.

Meanwhile, Markle, like her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, was careful to follow the rule of curtseying to the queen as she rode past in a carriage.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also ensure the children can see properly over the balcony by giving them a stool to stand on just behind the wall. This year was no different, although there's no denying all eyes were on Meghan. She was christened in Sandringham shortly after, and has been a regular fixture during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official visits. Though Philip accompanied them, the focus was very much on the royal women and their chemistry.

Charanpreet Singh Lall just made history by being the first guardsman to wear a turban during the Trooping the Colour ceremony for the Queen's birthday. It comes ahead of next week's journey by Meghan and the Queen to a series of engagments in Cheshire.

She also shushed him during his fit of excitement when aircraft flew overhead.
