Meghan Markle is back on the royal stage.
The new mother, who welcomed the son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor with her husband Prince Harry about a month ago, made her first public appearance since introducing her baby to the world by participating in Saturday’s Trooping the Color celebration in London to officially mark Queen Elizabeth II. the 93rd birthday of the birthday.
Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, without baby Archie, were photographed as they rode in a carriage with Kate Royston and Kate Camilla Parker Bowles along the route of the event. However, the couple did not make a balcony appearance in Buckingham Palace next to the queen and the rest of the family.
Although Meghan has been on maternity leave since her birth, Harry participated in royal engagements in the days following the baby’s arrival. The new father even had a “daddy” jacket at an event in the Netherlands in support of his Invictus Games.
Saturday’s Trooping the Color follows President Donald Trump’s state visit earlier this week. Meghan was absent from the Queen’s dinner in recognition of Trump’s journey in the midst of the controversy that the President had called her “filthy.” Meghan described Trump as ‘divided’ during an interview in 2016.
Trump later focused on the comments and said he never intended to call Meghan “filthy,” but believed her earlier word choices were. He also wished Meghan very well.
Meghan participated in her first Trooping the Color last year, weeks after she and Harry had made the decision.
Last year, the Duchess of Sussex chose an off-the-shoulder pink dress from Carolina Herrera for the occasion, which she combined with a Philip Treacy hat. Although Meghan’s gaze criticized her exposed shoulders, others believed the ensemble paid tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who in 1987 wore a style similar to a Berlin opera house gala.
This year she wore a more conservative navy blue look created by her wedding dress designer, Claire Waight Keller, according to People, and a matching Noel Stewart hat.
