Meghan Markle Makes First Public Appearance Since Archie's Birth at Queen's Birthday Parade, Stylish and Elegant as Always

She has not been seen since the announcement of Archie's birth in May. She wore a navy Givenchy dress with a hat at the Trooping the Colour parade.

Meghan was seen on her way to the Trooping the Colour event on June 8 in her first royal engagement since the birth of her son, Archie. The event marks the birthday of the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Meghan Markle looked elegant, the motherhood glow intact, in a navy Givenchy dress with a hat, peacock blue clutch, and emerald-cut earrings while Kate Middleton looked ready for summer in a lemon dress. She wore Bahrain Pear Drop earrings, said to have been borrowed from the Queen, according to Mirror UK

Duchess Camilla was seen in a sea green outfit. She was escorted by Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a horse-drawn carriage as members of the public cheered them on.



 

The Duchess of Sussex was last seen with the monarch, Prince Philip, Prince Harry and her mother Doria Ragland when the new parents were introducing their newborn to the royal family. Since then, we have only seen a small part of her when she shared a Mother's Day photo on Instagram as she celebrated it when America does.



 

Meghan was seen along with other royal family members for the Horse Guards Parade. There will be 1,400 soldiers, 300 horses and 400 musicians parading central London to celebrate the monarch’s birthday, according to the Mirror UK. A 41-gun salute in Green Park will also be part of the event.

Trooping the color has always been conducted in the first half of June since its conception in 1748, which is when King Edward VII wanted to celebrate his birthday as his real one in November was in extreme cold. The Queen's actual birthday is on April 21. The queen has attended every year except in 1955 when it was canceled.



 

Even though the weather in London has been quite cold, people have come to The Mall, Whitehall and other streets with waving flags. For the end of the event, an RAF will fly past while the members of the Royal Family watch from Buckingham Palace balcony.

Kate Middleton was also earlier seen on her way to the celebration in a car with Prince William. In 2018, she had just given third for the third time when the event took place.

Meghan arrived at the Buckingham Palace with Prince Harry on June 8 for the occasion. She has spent most of her time at Frogmore Cottage bonding with her son away from the public eye. She has eschewed many royal events including a royal banquet at Buckingham Palace held in honor American President Donald Trump this week, according to SUN UK.

During the event, the queen arrived in a horse-drawn carriage to inspect the birthday parade. She wore an all-white outfit. To begin the procession, the national anthem was played first.



 

Let's hope we see more of Meghan Markle in the coming days!
