Sikh guardsman first to wear turban at Trooping the Colour

He is now recovering from a hip replacement, but was well enough to be able to his attend the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle three weeks ago.

The Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies to mark the official birthday of the British sovereign.

The duchess, 36, was the only woman in the family not wearing a long sleeved dress.

Her excitable wave in engagement photos with Prince Harry back in December was not quite royal-ready. She accessorized with a blingy brooch and glasses.

The Duchess of Sussex broke protocol with her off-the-shoulder outfit.

The couple later joined other members of the Royal Family on the palace's front balcony to watch the Royal Air Force fly by.

Prince Phillip, who was recently at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding at St. George's Chapel, is instead spending the weekend privately. After all, they have done it before the wedding as well.

The ceremony originated from traditional preparations for battle.

She and Harry arrived at Buckingham Palace in the back of a auto before switching to their carriage for the big occasion. Charlotte matched with the Duchess in a pretty blue frock, while George wore the sweet Daniel shirt by British childrenswear brand Amaia, which also features blue detailing in its piping. The event was attended by other senior royals including the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Tens of thousands of Royal fans flocked to Buckingham Palace and the Mall to catch a glimpse of the pomp and pageantry surrounding the celebration for Queen Elizabeth.

Twitter users who were on holiday near the hotel reported it had "strangely high" security levels and "grounds closed to all" last week.

She teamed the frock with an angular hat by Philip Treacy in a matching hue to complete the look. The monarch's husband, Prince Philip, was absent from this year's event, as well as her great-grandson, Prince Louis.
