Duke and Duchess of Sussex join Queen Elizabeth's birthday celebrations

Queen's birthday

What's more, both are weddings of a royal - Eugenie and Harry - to a commoner - Jack and Meghan.

A 22-year-old Sikh soldier created history today 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.

Watched by large crowds, the newlyweds arrived in a horse-drawn carriage as part of a procession.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle also joined other senior royals at the event. Her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, turns 97 on Sunday and has retired from public duties.

Her cold-shoulder co-ord by Carolina Herrera was fitting for the regal pomp and pageantry of the big day and she accessorised the look with a co-ordinating hat by Philip Treacy. She wasn't on display during the ceremony, but instead got to watch it from a window in the Horse Guards building while talking with other royals.

Designer Kate Spade found dead in apartment
She is survived by her husband Andy , who is the brother of David, and their 13-year-old daughter Frances . Spade's handbags were a must-have, and she ranked among the NY designers to cement the minimalist look.

The royal train was first built in 1842 while Queen Victoria was on the throne, as a place for the royal family to stay during business trips, according to People.

In an unexpected turn of events, the 7-year-old was seen dancing on the Buckingham Palace balcony and faux conducting the national anthem, as the royal family awaited the 1pm fly-over. That is until we met her older cousin Savannah Phillips on Saturday.

This was 25 per cent up on the same period for the previous year, when she had been unwell with a heavy cold.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan rode in a carriage during the parade through London. While the Palace hasn't given any indication how Meghan will focus her charitable work, given her previous interest in women's empowerment, she may select a charity that benefits from her experience in this arena.

Meghan is fitting right in. It will be Harry's first time in Ireland, but Meghan visited Dublin in 2014.
