    The world got a glimpse of newlyweds Harry and Meghan at Trooping The Colour this weekend, officially marking Queen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday.

    Meghan wore a blush pink Carolina Herrera dress with an off-shoulder gown, paired with a Philip Treacy hat, breaking from royal protocol for her first Trooping The Colour.

    The Duchess of Cambridge, meanwhile, relied on trusty Alexander McQueen for the day, wearing a pale blue gown for the occasion.


    The Duchess of Sussex was, understandably, a little bit apprehensive on the day. When her husband asked if she was okay, Meghan said she was ‘nervous!’

    Eagle-eyed fans have now spotted how Prince Harry guided her through the whole process, telling her the right moment to curtsy for his grandmother.

    If you look closely during the below clip, you’ll see Meghan say through her teeth, ‘say when’. Just before bowing his own head, Harry replies ‘now’.

    Despite the caption saying Meghan asked ‘do it?’, we reckon it looks more like she’s saying the former.

    Yet another incredibly sweet gesture between the couple. Could we find them any more adorable?
