Meghan Markle Joins Prince Harry For First Royal Event Since Archie's Birth

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Trooping The Colour event celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday.

The Duchess of Sussex on Saturday made her first official public appearance since introducing newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world last month.

Meghan Markle was pictured alongside her husband Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, riding in a horse-drawn carriage to the annual Trooping The Colour celebration that marks Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday.

The first-time parents were joined in the carriage by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.


The annual event in Horse Guards Parade in London’s Whitehall includes an inspection by the queen of the troops and the playing of music by military bands. Members of the royal family later watch a Royal Air Force fly-past from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
