Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who were on their honeymoon, are back, and the lovely couple made heads turn with their attractive comeback for Trooping The Colour 2018.

Fresh from their honeymoon - its location is still a secret - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined other senior members of the royal family to mark the Queen's official birthday celebration.

Meghan experienced the pomp and pageantry of the event for the first time when she arrived on Horse Guards Parade with Harry in a carriage, along with the Queen's cousin the Duke of Kent.

From the vantage point of the Duke of Wellington's old office, which overlooks Horse Guards Parade, Camilla, Harry, Meghan and Kate and the other members of the Royal Family watched the finale of the event.

Prince Harry is relegated to a spot in a carriage because he is not a royal colonel.

After the ceremony the royal family will head back to Buckingham Palace and gather on the balcony to watch the RAF flypast.

The Duchess of Sussex broke protocol with her off-the-shoulder outfit.

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

The Queen cut a lonely figure as she attended Trooping the Colour alone, without Prince Phillip by her side.

The view along the Mall heading back to Buckingham Palace. Such was the case during Meghan and Harry's return to Buckingham Palace, when she could be seen trying to keep her hair in some semblance of order.

Queen Elizabeth II also selected a blue ensemble, choosing a dress and hat in a bolder blue than the shade chosen by Middleton and Parker-Bowles.

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, did not take part today, in line with his retirement from public life previous year. Meghan and Harry have stated their desire to jump right in and get to work in their new roles. 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. They are expected to travel to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
