Princess Charlotte takes a tumble at Queen's 92nd birthday celebration

Sarah shared a picture of the royal on her Instagram account with the accompanying caption: "So proud of the new Colonel of The Grenadier Guards @hrhthedukeofyork".

Prince Charles is now Colonel of the Welsh Guards, Prince William is Colonel of the Irish Guards, and Princess Anne is Colonel of the Blues and Royals.

For the prestigious ceremony - which marks Queen Elizabeth II's 92nd birthday - was the flawless opportunity for the former actress to demonstrate her sartorial prowess and she didn't disappoint.

Meghan, Harry and the other members of the royal family took their place in Wellington's former office which overlooks the parade ground.

Meghan will undertake her first official engagement with the Queen next week when she joins Her Majesty on the royal train for a visit to Cheshire, in north-west England.

A 22-year-old Sikh soldier today created history by becoming the first to wear a turban instead of a bearskin hat during an annual parade that marks the birthday of Britain's longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

The youngsters always have a front-row view of the aircraft display, while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were positioned at the back.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is officially jumped into the gang royal fam, now that she's shared the famed Buckingham Palace balcony with all of her in-laws.

After this year's Trooping the Colour, it was time for Meghan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex, to cross another first off her list of royal of events: a balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace.

So far, it seems Meghan has impressed Queen Elizabeth.

The Duchess added a pair of drop earrings to her reliably chic wardrobe choice and teamed it with one of her timeless staples - heeled court shoes.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge were in another carriage while a third carried Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Countess of Wessex and her daughter Lady Louise.

This is the first time the royal family were joined by the new Duchess of Sussex. During the celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday two years ago, footage of Elizabeth herself giving Prince William a talking to went viral.

Royal reporter Diana Pearl says that Prince Charles and Prince William hold the same rank, which is why they are dressed alike and on horseback.
