Meghan Makes Buckingham Palace Balcony Debut with Queen Elizabeth

Royal Family

GETTYDespite fooling thousands of spectators many rumours about the Royal Family are nothing but myths

Queen Elizabeth II smiles at Prince William, Duke of Cambridge during Trooping The Color ceremony at The Royal Horseguards on June 9, 2018 in London.

Meghan's remarkable confidence at the event reminds us of when Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's made her Trooping of the Colour debut less than two months after her April 2011 nuptials to Prince William.

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.

At this year's Trooping the Colour celebration, seven-year-old Savannah Phillips was visibly unimpressed with the four-year-old's rendition of the national anthem, and resorted to clapping her hand over his mouth to shut him up.

Earlier, Markle arrived on Horse Guards Parade with her husband Prince Harry in a carriage, along with the Queen's cousin the Duke of Kent.

The Queen looked on as the celebrations for her birthday took place on the Mall in central London. The dress featured button details and complemented her Philip Treacy hat.

Hawaii volcano has destroyed 600 homes, officials say
AP reports that the lava from the eruption "is among the most destructive and costly in volcano property loss in USA history". Most of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains closed due to persistent earthquakes and eruptions of corrosive volcanic ash.

The Queen ditched the sunglasses she had been wearing since a recent cataract operation, the Daily Mail reported.

All of the Royal Family was in attendance.

Princess Charlotte, meanwhile, took a mini tumble that resulted in some tears: Right as she was peeking out over the balcony's balustrade, the munchkin lost her balance and fell backwards.

Meanwhile, Duchess Meghan, who made her very first appearance at the iconic yearly ceremony - looked incredible in a pale-pink Carolina Herrera ensemble, which had a slightly retro feel with a button-down front and open neckline.

Princess Kate, who has been on maternity leave since giving birth to Prince Louis, left the newborn home.

The military precision of the parade unraveled slightly at the end of the day when the former chief of the defense staff, Charles Guthrie, 79, was thrown from his horse.
