As anticipated, newlyweds Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made their return to the spotlight days after arriving back in London from their honeymoon. The two were just filmed riding in the same carriage during Queen Elizabeth II’s Trooping the Colour official birthday parade. Markle wore an off-the-shoulder peach Carolina Herrera dress and Phillip Treacy fascinator, while Harry sat beside her in his uniform. They weren’t seen holding hands yet as the carriage started the parade route (it’s not their wedding-day but an event for the Queen, so the PDA may be understandably a little more limited). Kate Middleton, making a rare but expected appearance during her maternity leave, rode ahead of them, along with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Harry has traditionally been in their same carriage, but things change when you’re a married man.
The two will also be photographed on the Buckingham Palace balcony with the entire royal family, including the Queen a little later today to watch the RAF flypast. They will likely be joined by their niece and nephew, Princess Charlotte and Prince George. And like that, Meghan Markle is a full-fledge member of the royal family!
The Duchess of Sussex will be out again next Thursday, June 14, doing a day of engagements with the Queen in Chester. She’ll ride on the Queen’s exclusive royal train to get there.
