Cape Town - Britain's royal family stepped out on Saturday for the Trooping the Colour parade to mark Queen Elizabeth's official birthday. More than 1,000 soldiers and 250 horses traveled down the Mall from Buckingham Palace to Horseguards Parade with members of the Royal Family in carriages.
The massed bands of the Household Division will provide musical backing during the day and also taking part is the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery who, following the parade, will fire a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark the Queen's official birthday. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, immediately knelt down to comfort her then held her as the parade continued.
Back in 2012, the Queen took Kate, Duchess of Cornwall, for such an "away trip", this time to Leicester at the start of her Diamond Jubilee tour marking 60 years on the throne.
Meghan made her debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside Harry and the other family members and seemed totally at ease.
Arguably the cutest moment from the celebration came when 4-year-old Prince George began giggling, and found himself shushed by 7-year-old cousin Savannah Phillips, granddaughter of Princess Anne.

Their public appearance together followed media speculation in recent weeks that they had been on honeymoon, although Kensington Palace, Harry's office, has not provided details of any trip. Her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, turns 97 on Sunday and has retired from public duties.
