    The Queen celebrated her 92nd birthday this weekend with her annual Trooping The Colour ceremony. And while Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton shared a sweet sister-in-law moment on the balcony, there was another touching detail you might have missed, which was very noticeable when the whole Royal family stood on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

    Everyone from Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge and the Queen’s other grandchildren wore blue, thus matching the Queen’s pale blue outfit.

    They might not have done it on purpose, but some experts have said this shows their unity as a Royal family, on such an important day, as blue signifies loyalty, trust and wisdom.

    Duchess Kate wore an elegant powder blue Alexander McQueen dress, with matching Kiki McDonough blue topaz earrings, all of which could also be a tribute to her newborn baby boy, Louis.


    Meanwhile, the new Duchess of Sussex Meghan looked equally chic in a pale pink Caroline Herrera dress, with a bateau neckline that was the perfect nod to her wedding dress.

    She teamed it with a pair of gold and opal earrings by Birks, one of her favourite jewellery brands.
