The Duchess of Sussex is currently on maternity leave – having welcomed her first child, Archie Harrison, on May 6
– but she joined the rest of the royal family this morning to celebrate the annual Trooping The Colour ceremony. Today we would like to talk about Meghan Markle first appearance on maternity.
For the occasion, which marks the Queen’s official birthday (the monarch turned 93 on her actual birthday in April), the Duchess chose a navy ensemble by her wedding dress designer, Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, with a hat in the same colour by Noel Stewart.
Meghan, who made her first appearance at the event last year, a few weeks after her wedding, travelled in a carriage with Prince Harry.
The Duchess of Cambridge (who last year attended Trooping The Colour while on maternity leave with Prince Louis) and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a pale yellow ensemble comprised of an Alexander McQueen coat dress and matching fascinator by Philip Treacy.
While Prince Harry has carried out various official duties in the past few weeks.
This is the first time that Meghan has been seen in public since the couple introduced their son to the world via an official photo call at Windsor Castle on May 8, when he was two days old.
Baby Archie might be too young to join in the festivities this year, but his cousins – George, Charlotte and Louis – are all expected to be in attendance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with their parents later today.
