Here's Why Meghan Markle Was Not Front & Center at Balcony Debut

13 June 2018

Exactly three weeks after marrying Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex made her Trooping the Colour debut on June 9, on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

Meghan Markle stood a little behind Kate Middleton.

However, it was not a royal snub as some may have thought.

As it turns out, despite her strength and independence, Markle's new lifestyle requires a guiding hand (or two)-especially when it comes to navigating the nitty gritty of the etiquette that accompanies royal traditions.

"There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out first with his wife".

"[Meghan] was still in a good position".

"I think right now in the climate that we're seeing with so many campaigns, #MeToo and Time's Up, there is no better time than to really shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that", she added.

In addition, a palace source told the publication, where the Duchess stood "would have come from her".

"And there were a lot of kids who everyone would want at the front".

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are continuing to prove why they're the No. 1 couple in our hearts (sorry not sorry, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson) with yet another caught-on-camera cute moment.

To which Meghan replied: "Yeah, are you?"

"Yeah", said the Duke of Sussex.

Harry and Meghan rode on a carriage.
