Royal newlyweds attend Queen's birthday parade

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken their places for the first time with the Queen on Buckingham Palace's balcony after Trooping the Colour. The royal sisters looked fabulous as they arrived in a horse-drawn carriage looking as stylish as ever in contrasting outfits. Throughout the ceremony, Charlotte, who matched her mother the Duchess of Cambridge in a pale blue dress, was all smiles as she stood next to her cousin and on the opposite side of her four-year-old brother Prince George. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first post-honeymoon appearance together again and it looked like Princess Charlotte and Prince George are a big fan of their new auntie!

The Duchess of Sussex, as Markle is now known, wore a Carolina Herrera dress and a hat by Philip Treacy.

In honour of this event, the Royals held a huge event called Trooping the Colour.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "I can confirm that the Queen successfully underwent a short planned procedure to treat a cataract last month".

The queen is then joined by other members of the royal family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace before a 41-gun salute is fired to mark the occasion. She is the Queen's eldest great grandchild.

The Queen's actual birthday was on April 21 when she turned 92.

They watched as this year's colour, the flag of the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, was trooped on Horse Guards, Henry VIII's former jousting yard. But now that Prince Philip, 97 on Sunday, has retired, she's taking relatives more and more frequently.

In Cheshire, they'll undertake classic royal duties: opening a bridge, officially cutting a ribbon at a cultural centre that's actually been going since past year, and finally, a lunch at the Chester Town Hall.
