Harry and Meghan to visit Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand

Yesterday was a very big day for the royal family, but especially for the Duchess of Sussex. The "Quantico" actress wore a pastel shade of purple with a matching hat by Philip Treacy, while Spencer opted for a navy blue, collared dress with polka dots and a matching hat. While her off-the-shoulder dress drew some criticism for breaking royal protocol, clearly nobody on the balcony seemed to mind as she joked around with Prince Charles, Prince William and Camilla.

So, understandably, it's no surprise that the Duchess was nervous - which she apparently admitted to being, according to one lip-reader, speaking to the Mirror.

In her first engagement after marrying Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex abandoned her usual fashion-forward outfits for a more prim and proper look.

Earlier, the pomp and pageantry of Trooping the Colour was staged on Horse Guards Parade.

But it's 2018, and Markle is everyone's-er, most people's-favorite rule-breaking-Duchess (gotta love how she wears messy buns all the time, like even to her wedding).

The new member of the Royal Family sought comfort in her husband and Duchess Kate, whom she exchanged words with as they overlooked the throng of people gathering outside Buckingham Palace.

Four generations of the royal family were gathered on Buckingham Palace's balcony to watch the traditional fly-past which featured modern Typhoon jets and also aircraft from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - an iconic Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster bomber.

Either way, a lot of people leapt to Meghan's defence after the outcry, arguing that some people were focusing too much on archaic rules, and not enough on the fact that the Duchess looked incredible. The parade gives the Queen a chance to review and approve her army.

She also received some help from Samantha Cohen, an Australian-born palace adviser who has worked closely with the Queen.
