Meghan Markle is back from her honeymoon. Her first order of business? Joining the royals at the annual Trooping of the Colour to celebrate her new great-grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth.

The celebration is held in honour of the monarch for her birthday, and the entire royal family comes together at Buckingham Palace to watch a military parade. This year, the newly-named Duchess of Sussex scored an invite and was joined by her husband, Prince Harry.

The newlyweds made their way to the event in a horse-drawn carriage. Meghan wore a pale pink, off-the-shoulder dress from Carolina Herrera, and a matching hat by Philip Treacy.

And if the fascinator looks familiar, you’re not mistaken, it’s the same one she wore for her first public appearance as an official royal when she attended a garden party for Prince Charles’s 70th birthday.

Other members of the royal family in the procession included Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. While officially on maternity leave until October after having her third child Prince Louis in April, she stepped out in a light blue dress from Alexander McQueen with a matching fascinator.

Her seatmate, the Duchess of Cornwall, opted for a similar shade. As did the Queen, who went with a brighter blue for the big day.
