It's the flawless opportunity for Meghan to learn the royal ropes, as it were, from Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

Charlotte wasn't the only royal child who caused a scene during the official celebration for Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday.

The Duchess wore a light pink off-the-shoulder dress and hat, Glamour.com reported, a light touch to Prince Harry, who donned a military uniform.

Princess Charlotte fell during Trooping The Colour, the annual birthday celebration for Queen Elizabeth II, but Kate Middleton saved the day thanks to her quick mom reflexes. Thankfully, Super Mom Kate Middleton was there to help steady her 3-year-old daughter.

The Duke of Edinburgh, who celebrates his 97th birthday on Sunday, has retired from official public duties and did not attend.

The ceremony culminates with a magnificent balcony appearance by the Royal Family.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "I can confirm that the Queen successfully underwent a short planned procedure to treat a cataract last month". It marked the first time a member of the Coldstream Guards took part wearing turban - and Lall hoped it wouldn't be the last.

First the ceremonial. Meghan sat beside Harry in a horse-drawn carriage procession from Buckingham Palace to the Horse Guards parade ground where thousands of troops waited to parade a regimental flag (a Colour) in front of the Queen.

Her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, attended the event with her previous year, but was absent today.

The entire royal family gathered together on the balcony to watch the iconic fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

Camilla wore a pale blue silk dress and coat by Bruce Oldfield and a hat by Philip Treacy.
