Sikh soldier wears turban in Queen's official birthday parade

Wearing full ceremonial regalia, the Prince of Wales, Prince William, Prince Andrew (top and bottom right) and Princess Anne (inset) saluted as they rode out onto the Mall.

It's the flawless opportunity for Meghan to learn the royal ropes, as it were, from Britain's longest-reigning monarch. The Queen turned 92 on her actual birthday on April 21.

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

Meanwhile, Duchess Meghan, who made her very first appearance at the iconic yearly ceremony - looked incredible in a pale-pink Carolina Herrera ensemble, which had a slightly retro feel with a button-down front and open neckline.

Sarah, Duchess of York has said that she is "very proud" of the Duke of York following his debut at Trooping the Colour as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards. Thankfully, Super Mom Kate Middleton was there to help steady her 3-year-old daughter.

Prince Philip, the Queen's husband, did not attend, having retired from public life past year.

Black, grey and white horses, military guards including the Cold Stream and Irish guards in their elaborate dress uniforms and tall fur hats, and two enormous drum horses bearing kettle drums and riders took part in the ceremony, which ran for two hours.

In matching ice blue, the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 70, led the procession in a carriage.

The actor talked to ET and revealed why the new royal couple is the ideal pair.

Trooping the Colour originated from traditional preparations for battle. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first post-honeymoon appearance together again and it looked like Princess Charlotte and Prince George are a big fan of their new auntie! Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip stayed their in 2005.
