Meghan back for parade in Queen's honour

And this is not the first time hand-me-downs were seen in the royal family. The actress-turned-duchess reportedly wore a navy Givenchy outfit by her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller and a matching navy hat by Noel Stewart.

Meghan made her first public appearance since giving birth to Archie on Saturday, joining most of the royal family to celebrate the Queen's official birthday the Trooping of the Colour at Horse Guards Parade in London.

And there were plenty of royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony, so much so that there was hardly space for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who were amongst the last to emerge.

Many suggested there must have been a reason behind why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were "stowed away in the corner" of the shots, and they may be right.

Meghan made one of her first official royal engagements at the Trooping past year after marrying Prince Harry last May.

It's the first time Meghan has been seen since the 8th of May when she presented her baby son to the world in Windsor Castle. When Kate gave birth to Prince George, she received a white gold eternity ring by Annoushka, and, after Princess Charlotte, Wills deigned a pair of tourmaline, amethyst, and diamond earrings especially for his wife with jeweler Kiki McDonough.

And in fairness, Zara Tindall tends to skip the Trooping of the Colour quite often, as she's not technically a working member of the royal family.

Last month, Meghan celebrated her first American Mother's Day by posting a sweet snap of Archie's tiny feet.

But for royal fans concerned about the Tindalls snubbing the Queen, it turns out the monarch is not likely to be too bothered.
