Prince Harry, for one, continuously checked on her to make sure she was okay, and by all accounts, she did a "fantastic" job.
During Kate's Trooping the Colour debut in 2011, she stood in the front, but to the far left of the balcony.
"(Meghan) was not as prominent perhaps as some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order", Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, told People magazine.
The Duchess looked absolutely gorgeous in her bespoke Carolina Herrera dress and matching Philip Treacy hat. She was bashed for breaking the Royal's rule by showing off her shoulders.

The Royal family at the Trooping the Colours
Once everyone arrived, the family gathered together on the balcony to observe the iconic fly-past by the Royal Air Force. So for her first ever Buckingham Palace balcony appearance, the former TV actress couldn't be front and center like she was at her May 19 wedding.
Generally speaking, the order in which the royals appear on the palace balcony is influenced by the Order of Precedence, rather than the line of succession to the throne. "There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out [first] with his wife".
But it seems as though Prince Harry's alleged role as Meghan Markle's new stylist have done her little, if any, good.
Meghan Markle may have traded her Hollywood career for a humanitarian life with the man of her dreams, but the Royal Family's newest member may have one last accolade to collect: an Emmy for her performance as Rachel Zane on Suits. As usual, they also looked adorable for this major royal family photo op, with their 7-year-old cousin Savannah Phillips nearly stealing the show by pretending to conduct the orchestra or by putting her hand over George's mouth.
