Harry and Meghan also appeared on Thursday for the “Trooping the Color” parade. But you couldn’t see them on the balcony.

At the start of the celebrations of her platinum anniversary, Queen Elizabeth II (96) was celebrated by thousands of people. After the traditional “Trooping the Color” parade, the crowd in attendance cheered the cheerful monarch as she appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. In addition to Elizabeth II, only working members of the Royals gathered on the balcony, but Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (40), who had traveled from the USA, were not far.

It had previously become known that the two would follow the military parade from the Major General’s Office – an office in Buckingham Palace. Accordingly, they were also sighted during the celebrations. The British “Daily Mail” published recordings showing Meghan in an open window with several small royals. The Duchess of Sussex appeared to be playfully and smilingly urging the children to be a little quieter during the parade. And apparently Harry agreed too.

Another picture shows the couple talking to the Duke of Kent. It can be seen that Harry chose a dark suit for the formal occasion, while Meghan opted for a dark blue dress and a large white hat with a blue bow. These are the first recordings of the two at the celebrations.

Harry and Meghan not on the balcony but in the cathedral

It had also been previously announced that Meghan and Harry would not be on the balcony with their relatives. In addition to the Queen, only family members working as royals gathered there. For example, Prince Charles (73) and Duchess Camilla (74) appeared. Prince William (39) and Duchess Kate (40) brought their children Prince George (8), Princess Charlotte (7) and Prince Louis (4).

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are expected to attend a thanksgiving service for the Queen to be held at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral on June 3.
