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 is always a stylish event on the royal calendar, with the extended royal family gathering to celebrate the Queen's official birthday.

Her excitable wave in engagement photos with Prince Harry back in December was not quite royal-ready.

Queen Elizabeth opted for a blue sky blue coat and dress by designer Stewart Parvin and a hat by Angela Kelly while Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, wore a pale blue dress by Bruce Oldfield and Hat by Philip Treacy. He had a hip operation in April and retired from public life previous year. So, three weeks after her wedding, which was followed by an outing at a Buckingham Palace garden party for the charities and organizations tied to Prince Charles, who turns 70 this year, Meghan is now plunging-carefully and deliberately-into royal life.
