  • Prince George made a hilarious mistake at the Trooping the Colour — and the internet loves it

First out of Buckingham Palace in the carriage procession was the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall, closely followed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their first public appearance since getting back from their honeymoon.

Queen Elizabeth II - without Prince Philip - at the Trooping The Colour. His absence had nothing to do with his recent hip surgery.

It was the first time Meghan had attended the ceremony following her marriage to Prince Harry on May 19.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a dress by Carolina Herrera and a hat by Philip Treacy, while the Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress by Alexander McQueen and a hat by Juliette Botterill.

On Saturday, the Queen, who last month had a successful day procedure to remove a cataract, left Buckingham Palace at 10.45am (local time) for the ceremony.

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.

Muguruza dominates Sharapova, Halep also into French Open semifinals
Simona Halep has reached her third French Open final and held on to the world No.1 spot with victory over Garbine Muguruza . Muguruza essentially got that round off, too: Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko, quit with an injury after only two games.

Every year, the United Kingdom honors Queen Elizabeth's birthday with the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony which is one of the most spectacular royal events of the year.

She made an unexpected outing at Windsor Castle less than four weeks after Prince Louis' birth.

Taking to Twitter, the Duchess wrote: "Very proud of The Duke Of York Colonel of the Grenadier Guards".

Bringing Prince Harry's new bride along with her is a "is a really positive sign of favour, encouragement and endorsement by the Queen", Robert Lacey, historical consultant for Netflix's "The Crown", tells People. Expect to see Meghan at a carefully chosen selection of them as she continues her introduction to her new life as a senior royal.

Meghan also had her hair styled in a bouncy blowout. Here's to hoping Meghan Markle doesn't get too overwhelmed and things work out for the two of them. That Meghan is undertaking such a trip less than a month after marriage says a lot about how the family wants to make sure she's comfortable in her duties, and that the world knows that she is now an important full-time royal.

In Australia, Meghan and Harry will visit Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games, the Paralympic-style sporting event Harry founded for service men and women.
