Harry and Meghan attend Trooping The Colour as smiling Queen recovers from cataract operation

Fresh from their rumoured mini-honeymoon spent in Co. Mayo, Ireland, newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan arrived at Buckingham Palace today for their first formal engagement since their showstopping wedding in May.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid tribute to the Queen at the spectacular Trooping The Colour ceremony, in celebration of Her Majesty's official 92nd birthday, for a traditional summer spectacle watched by thousands.

The Queen, who recently had a successful eye operation to remove a cataract, was pictured wearing her usual clear framed spectacles, having spent the previous three weeks wearing shaded lenses following the procedure. 

Harry and Meghan were pictured riding in a carriage together, staged on Whitehall's Horse Guards Parade, and later joined members of the monarchy on Buckingham Palace's balcony for the first time to watch the RAF flypast and acknowledge the crowds.

Tens of thousands of cheering Royal enthusiasts flocked to Whitehall to see the royals mingle on the balcony, with Meghan and Kate sharing a chuckle while Harry watched on. 

Meghan wore a dress by Carolina Herrera and a hat by Philip Treacy. While Kate wore a dress by Alexander McQueen and a hat by Juliette Botterill.

Camilla was in a pale blue silk dress and coat by Bruce Oldfield and a hat by Philip Treacy and the Queen wore a sky blue coat and dress by Stuart Parvin, and a hat by Angela Kelly.
