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

Prince George made a hilarious mistake at the Trooping the Colour — and the internet loves it

Prince William and Kate's children were the picture of happiness as they stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with their parents.

A 22-year-old Sikh soldier today created history by becoming the first to wear a turban instead of a bearskin hat during an annual parade that marks the birthday of Britain's longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

Sarah, Duchess of York has said that she is "very proud" of the Duke of York following his debut at Trooping the Colour as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.

He joined the other royal colonels riding behind the Queen's Ascot Landau carriage, Charles who is Colonel of the Welsh Guards, Anne, Colonel of the Blues and Royals, and William, Colonel of the Irish Guards.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge were in another carriage while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her daughter Lady Louise.

Trooping of the colour was incredible but Kate's dress has our heart.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte couldn't have looked cuter in their smart little outfits - co-ordinating perfectly with mum Kate, who wore a gorgeous pale blue Alexander McQueen dress. Although Queen Elizabeth already turned 92 on April 21, the royals understandably prefer to party and socialize in warmer weather.

Bringing Prince Harry's new bride along with her is a "is a really positive sign of favour, encouragement and endorsement by the Queen", Robert Lacey, historical consultant for Netflix's "The Crown", tells People.

However, the Buckingham Palace balcony appearance after the parade wasn't her first - as royal watchers will recall, she and Wills exchanged a kiss at that exact spot on their wedding day.

This is the first time the royal family were joined by the new Duchess of Sussex.

She was without her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, who turns 97 on Sunday.

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Duchess of Sussex attend the Trooping the Color ceremony in London, June 9, 2018.
