Here's Why Meghan Markle Was Not Front & Center at Balcony Debut

"She was central rather than the alternative of being in the front row and along the balcony to the left or right", he added.

The new royal just attended her first Trooping the Colour, where her husband showed her the ropes.

Along with co-stars Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, Parisa Fitz-Henley, who you may remember as the actress who played Markle in the Lifetime movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, has also been submitted for consideration.


She's yet to announce and charity patronages, but Meghan's first official role as a working royal has been confirmed. The couple recently returned from their honeymoon after tying the knot on May 19.

As it turns out, despite her strength and independence, Markle's new lifestyle requires a guiding hand (or two)-especially when it comes to navigating the nitty gritty of the etiquette that accompanies royal traditions. According to the official royal website, "over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday".

The Duchess of Sussex opted for a pale pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera with a matching hat by Philip Treacy.


It would be safe to say that since becoming a member of one of the most loved and famous families in the world (no, not the Kardashians), Meghan Markle has become a family favourite.

Asked for her thoughts on the Royal Foundation, Meghan said: 'To see the model of the foundation is really interesting because, while I've worked with larger NGOs, I've also worked with really small grassroots organisations where you can see a higher level of impact in my opinion, because there's a lot less red tape.
