With Meghan Markle’s first balcony appearance, her new royal life truly begins

Their itinerary includes Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga, coinciding with Prince Harry's October Invictus Games in Sydney - though no further dates have been revealed.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is officially jumped into the gang royal fam, now that she's shared the famed Buckingham Palace balcony with all of her in-laws.

Prince Harry, who served with the British army in Afghanistan, was the first member of the Royal family to enter a combat zone since 1982.

The former Suits Star opted for a custom-made pale pink Carolina Herrera dress on Saturday when she made her Trooping the Colour debut.

Trooping the Colour 2018 marks the Cambridge children's first appearance since Harry and Meghan's royal nuptials. This year, the Queen's husband Prince Philip, who turned 97 on Sunday, did not attend.

The Duke was also absent from Trooping the Colour celebrations in London yesterday, marking the Queen's official birthday.


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.

First the ceremonial. Meghan sat beside Harry in a horse-drawn carriage procession from Buckingham Palace to the Horse Guards parade ground where thousands of troops waited to parade a regimental flag (a Colour) in front of the Queen. Prince Harry wore military attire.

They will make a series of public appearances, opening a bridge and a theatre before having a formal lunch.

And royal fans were delighted to see Markle and Prince Harry (The Duke and Duchess of Sussex) join her on the famous balcony.

As a newly-appointed royal with the world watching her every move, you certainly can't blame Meghan for feeling nervous.

The Duchess of Sussex, alongside Her Majesty, will visit Chesire on the 14th of June where they will open the Storyhouse theatre, which acts as a community centre, library, and cinema.
