The members of the royal family - yes, including now Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex - stepped out on Saturday in London for the annual Trooping the Colour parade, the official celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday. And Harry's mother, Princess Diana, never once wore short sleeves since her first appearance at the event in 1981.

While they appeared at a private Buckingham Palace garden party three days after they Wednesday, Saturday afternoon's outing was the first time the former actress has been on full show as a royal.

It originated from traditional preparations for battle when flags, or colours, were "trooped" so soldiers in the ranks would be able to recognize them.

As the aerobatic display team, the Red Arrows, released plumes of red, white and blue smoke over the balcony of Buckingham Palace, the Queen's great-grandchildren waved wildly.

The parade marks the official birthday of the Sovereign, even though the Queen's actual birthday is on April 21st.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is also all set for her solo trip with the Queen, was seen sporting a serene outfit in peach, and looked every bit blue-blooded.

Prince Harry is relegated to a spot in a carriage because he is not a royal colonel.

Twitter users who were on holiday near the hotel reported it had "strangely high" security levels and "grounds closed to all" last week.

Harry and William were in military dress uniforms. He turns 97 on Sunday.

After the ceremony the royal family will head back to Buckingham Palace and gather on the balcony to watch the RAF flypast.

Charlotte enjoyed the flyover alongside her older brother Prince George as well as Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly's daughter Savannah Phillips.
