The moment Harry tells Meghan to curtsy to the Queen

The moment Harry tells Meghan to curtsy to the Queen

"There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out [first] with his wife".

A palace source says Meghan's balcony position "would have come from her".

Meghan is no stranger to the Invictus Games making her first public outing with the Prince, who is patron of the charity, a year ago at the Games in Toronto. "And there were a lot of kids who everyone would want at the front".

What do you think of Meghan's outfit?

The duchess stepped out looking all glam in a pale pink, off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress with a matching wide-brimmed fascinator.

The British designer, who last night opened her new London flagship store with a star-studded party, said: 'It was very much her dress, and I felt very proud that she came to me for that part of the wedding, and that she got to reflect [herself] in it.

Meanwhile, Harry is now sixth in line to the throne, but he'll eventually fall lower in the line of succession as William's heirs, Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis have children.

Before her first moment on Buckingham Palace's balcony, she rode in a carriage with her husband Prince Harry and the Queen's cousin the Duke of Kent.

The train - which features full sized living rooms, toilets, bedrooms and even meeting rooms - is only entitled to be used by the Queen, Prince Philip, Charles and Camilla.

We commoners could easily interpret this as some kind of snub to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex - after all, everyone loves a bit of royal drama.

"She will learn from the other members of the royal family, which will be following them round, and copying the way they do things", former butler Grant Harrold told Yahoo UK.

And Meghan was all smiles as she took in the historic annual event.
