Explained: What is the UK's Trooping the Colour parade?

Despite the fact that it was her debut Trooping the Colour, Meghan didn't seem fazed by the flag-bearing crowds and was guided through the day by Prince Harry who could be seen talking her through the event.

The monarch is technically the head of Britain's armed forces and would traditionally lead an army into war.

It was The Queen's seven-year-old great-granddaughter, Savannah Phillips. "There's going to be a lot of eyes and I am going to have an influence on other people".

British Sikh Guardsman Charanpreet Singh Lall, 22, told the Press Association news agency that he hoped people watching would "look at it as a new change in history".

Everyone from the Royal Family was standing up on the balcony as the Trooping the Colour event took place.

Even her official wedding portraits only included the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte.

Apple veered from tradition slightly and stuck only to software updates, said Gene Munster, managing partner at Loup Ventures. Meanwhile, Apple has seized the opportunity to cast itself as the best behaved player in tech.

On the balcony, there were also present: Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Kate, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Prince Charles.

Eugenie also took to her own Instagram to congratulate her dad, and shared a picture of Andrew posing inside the palace, looking happy and smart in his Grenadier Guards uniform.

The princess - who has earned recognition in the past for her waves and curtsies - frequently wears Mary-Janes and wore custom Aquazzura shoes in a bright white at uncle Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in May.

The Queen, whose actual birthday is on April 21, inspected the troops and received a royal salute, and watched displays of precision marching before she was due to make her way back to Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace said Friday that the Queen underwent successful cataract surgery in May.
