Meghan experienced the pomp and pageantry of the event for the first time when she arrived on Horse Guards Parade with Harry in a carriage, along with the Queen's cousin the Duke of Kent.

The guardsman said his family, including his mother, father and sister, who are "really, really proud" of him, will be there to watch him take part. Back in 2012, the Queen took Kate, Duchess of Cornwall, for such an "away trip", this time to Leicester at the start of her Diamond Jubilee tour marking 60 years on the throne.

Meghan Markle will make her debut at the event alongside husband Prince Harry.
