Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend Trooping the Color ceremony

The duke and duchess, who married three weeks ago, made the short trip from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade in a horse-drawn carriage as royal fans lining the Mall cheered and waved.

Four royals arrived on horseback in full dress uniform in their capacity as royal colonels - Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Andrew, and Princess Anne the Princess Royal. But instead of keeping with the other ladies sporting long-sleeved ensembles, Markle strayed from tradition, sporting a custom pale pink off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress and matching Philip Treacy hat.

The younger royals lined up in front of the adults to enjoy the fly-past of modern and historic aircraft, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte standing with their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Earlier, the pomp and pageantry of Trooping the Colour was staged on Horse Guards Parade - a first for Meghan. Attending the Trooping of the Colour to celebrate her new great-grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth. The lodge has often hosted celebrities and the Royal Family. The next time the public is likely to see Prince Louis will be at his christening later this summer.

Prince Harry, who served with the British army in Afghanistan, was the first member of the Royal family to enter a combat zone since 1982.

The passion exuded from Panama's national anthem sent social media into overdrive. And it wasn't just the players singing with fans brilliantly in full voice, too.

But this is not their first time on duty since marrying - just a few days after their May wedding, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared at Prince Charles' birthday party.

As a newly minted royal Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has a lot of hurdles to cross as she learns to fit in to the royal lifestyle.

The newly-weds will embark on their first major global visit with a four-country tour which will also take in Fiji and Tonga.

Their tour will coincide with the 2018 Invictus Games, an worldwide sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women created in 2014 by Prince Harry.

She stood alongside Prince Harry, and the two were joined by Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Peter Phillips, Autumn Phillips, Isla Phillips, and Savannah Phillips.
