Meghan Markle has made her first public appearance since she showed off baby Archie, at the queen’s birthday parade, known as Trooping the Colour.

The Duchess of Sussex took a small break from her maternity leave to pop out for the annual event. She gave birth to the youngest royal on May 6.

Prince Harry is not on paternity leave, and continues to make appearances around the globe, visiting Rome and the Netherlands since little Archie was born.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex rode in a carriage alongside Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Queen Elizabeth’s actual birthday is on April 21, but is celebrated in June. According to Kensington Palace, this is done to mark sovereigns' birthdays, particularly when they do not fall during the summer.

King Edward VIII was born on Nov. 9, but he used to celebrate his birthday in June, when the weather was more likely to hold up for the parade.

The tradition dates back more than 260 years.
