It is a celebration that involves over 1,400 guardsman and cavalry members - plus oodles of royals!

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan rode in a carriage during the parade through London.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and her husband, Prince Harry, attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace for Prince Charles 70th birthday last month.

As a pre-wedding gift to the prince, the Queen appointed her grandson a Commonwealth youth ambassador, his most high profile role to as a royal to date.

Savannah Phillips, the Queen's great-granddaughter, appeared unimpressed with Prince George's endless chatter and slapped a hand over his mouth to keep him quiet.

After arriving at the palace, the royals assembled on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch a fly-by by the Royal Air Force.


Given how many rules and traditions the Royal Family are said to adhere to, it's little wonder Meghan still needs some guidance. She chose to wear a gorgeous peach Carolina Herrera dress, and matching Philip Treacy hat.

Kate and Wills were in another carriage while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her daughter Lady Louise.

But the country bolthole will be around one and a half hours from London too, meaning they can always pop back home if they're needed.


Meanwhile, while Meghan is in work mode, Kate Middleton, 36, is spending her summer maternity leave having fun.

What is different about the Cheshire trip is the timing.

The couple could be seen chatting as the event unfolded, and now, thanks to some lip readers, we know exactly what was said. Usually, Trooping the Colour, much like other royal events, has a strict "no ring, no bring" policy. Then comes the Order of the Garter ceremony at St. George's Chapel, where Meghan and Harry were married, as well as days of racing at Royal Ascot, as well as Wimbledon and the Queen's annual Scottish tour.
