Duke and Duchess of Sussex to tour Australia and New Zealand

Prince Harry was reportedly calming Meghan's nervous throughout the whole parade.

Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, had another royal first this weekend when she joined her extended family for the Trooping of the Colour procession.

Mr Mellon told the reporter: "She told me she had never been to Australia but was going to this year's event and really looking forward to being there with Harry". Others, however, were quick to rush to her defense saying that Meghan was bringing a fresh look to the usual "stuffy" royal etiquette.

The official royal tour will be a rite of passage for royal newcomer Meghan, 36, as she settles into married life with Harry, 33.

Camilla was riding in the first carriage of the procession, and as she left Buckingham Palace accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge, the two royals turned to wave to the Parker Bowles family as they spotted them in the masses. While they posed and looked serene for the inevitable photo opp, they also took a couple of moments to chat warmly with one another and we'd die to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a pale pink dress by Carolina Herrera which she paired with a fascinator by Philip Treacy.

Meghan was also pictured enjoying the luxury hotel's amenities with friend Millie Mackintosh in 2016, the year Harry and Meghan started dating.

Appearing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for special events is a royal tradition that goes back to 1851 when, according to the official royal website, Queen Victoria stepped out during celebrations to mark the opening of the Great Exhibition.

The former Suits star attended last year's games in Toronto with Harry, and joined in again this year when she sheered on United Kingdom athletes at the trials.

Cohen, 49, reportedly helped the Duchess on an array of issues, including how to correctly address people, how to behave on royal tours at home and overseas, and how to be an effective member of the Royal Family.
