Prince Harry gives Meghan Markle some royal pointers

Sussex and Queen Elizabeth II laugh during a ceremony to open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge

The plush train will welcome Her Maj and the Duchess of Sussex for an overnight journey up north.

But whatever the protocol, Meghan clearly still controls her own wardrobe and opted for a dress reminiscent of the Givenchy design she wore on her big day. However, some people aren't so keen.

The Trooping the Colour is an annual parade of regiments from the British and Commonwealth armies to honor Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

No matter where she stood, Markle was hard to miss as she looked radiant in a pale pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera, which she paired with a matching hat by London-based and royal favorite designer Philip Treacy.

That said, Little believes Meghan's spot was far better than it could have been.

She added: 'The role that she's taken on is very austere, it's very serious and I think there's a great weight that she has acquired though that and I think she takes it very seriously.

While guests were standing on the balcony waiting for the Queen to arrive, Meghan wanted to know when to curtsy.

Generally speaking, the order in which the royals appear on the palace balcony is influenced by the Order of Precedence, rather than the line of succession to the throne.

"There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out [first] with his wife". So for her first ever Buckingham Palace balcony appearance, the former TV actress couldn't be front and center like she was at her May 19 wedding.

"[Meghan] was still in a good position", says Little.

The new Duchess of Sussex notably stood behind her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, and brother-in-law, Prince William - and it all came down to a royal "pecking order". She was bashed for breaking the Royal's rule by showing off her shoulders. "And there were a lot of kids who everyone would want at the front".
