Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Attend Queen’s 92nd Birth Celebration

On Saturday, the Duchess of Sussex attended her first-ever Trooping the Colour parade, an event which brings together over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians to honor Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday. Since her 2011 Trooping the Colour debut, Kate Middleton has never worn short sleeves, and neither did Princess Diana.

The newlyweds joined the rest of the royal family while riding in horse-drawn carriages to Buckingham Palace, where they all appeared together on the balcony.

Trooping the Colour sees the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge and Sophie, Countess of Wessex in their most elegant finery, with hats and day dresses the usual order of the day.

There is a new addition to the annual Buckingham Palace balcony photo.

This year's event marks the Queen's 92nd birthday, although Her Majesty's actual birthday is April 21.

Prince Harry is relegated to a spot in a carriage because he is not a royal colonel.

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, take part in the Trooping the Colour parade in central London, Britain, June 9, 2018.

First out of Buckingham Palace in the carriage procession was the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall, closely followed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their first public appearance since getting back from their honeymoon.

While Meghan has blossomed into the epitome of royal sophistication already, Prince Harry in his black uniform looked like a knight in shining armour. He turns 97 on Sunday.
