According to the Evening Standard, Harry and Meghan will be mirroring Harry's parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, whose first first royal tour was also to Australia and New Zealand.

Early this morning, The Queen celebrated her official birthday with the citizens of England.

For her seventh Trooping the Colour, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a custom-made Alexander McQueen suit, topped with a Juliette Botterill hat, embellished with flowers.

The Trooping the Colour ceremony marks the start of a busy six months for Meghan and Harry. Harry appeared to understand her anxiety, replying, "Yes,", before checking in on Meghan again, asking, "Okay?" The new Duchess chose to pair the coat with a black straw hat by Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Co Hatters.

Although shoulders are not always banned for the Royal family, during this particular annual occasion, ladies are known to wear long sleeves. The two smiled and laughed with each other while sitting opposite Prince Harry and Prince Andrew.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, looked wonderful just weeks after giving birth to her third child, Prince Louis, in April.

The duchesses both joined their other halves on the terrace for the traditional Trooping the Colour flyby, when jet planes streaming with coloured smoke zip past the Queen's royal residence.

"It's not a joint thing, it's not her and Harry, it's just her and the Queen so it will give her an fantastic opportunity to spend time with the Queen in private and in public". Standing next to Prince William on the balcony, the couple kept it formal with Catherine placing her hands in front of her body. She also waved and smiled to the crowds, along with her husband. After all, it is a huge responsibility being a Duchess, and although Meghan boasted a refined sense of fashion even in her acting days, it is a different ball game when you are part of the royal family.

All eyes will be on her as she gets to grips with becoming one half of a royal tour double act, with daily engagements, tree planting and ubiquitous unveiling ceremonies all possibilities on the itinerary.

"On Saturday, [Harry] could be seen whispering to [Meghan], 'Now, ' indicating when she should curtsy at the appropriate time as the queen returned to Buckingham Palace from the Horse Guards Parade", the source tells ET.
