British Royal Family

Royal fans rejoice! This is when we're next likely to see Duchess Meghan in public

It's a lot sooner than you may think.

Baby Archie is barely even a month old but we're already impatient to see Duchess Meghan get back into the royal swing of things.
While her husband has been jetting off to polo games and Buckingham Palace garden parties, the Duchess of Sussex has presumably been laying low at Frogmore Cottage with Archie adjusting to new mum life on her maternity leave.
But good news Meghan fans - she may be coming back into the public eye sooner than you think.
June is a big month for the royals as it is the month where Trooping the Colour occurs.
The celebration, which is the official marking of Queen Elizabeth's birthday, sees the entire family (yes, children too) gather and culminate on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in all their finery. And it's at this big event in the royal calendar on June 8th that will most likely mark Duchess Meghan's first official royal appearance after giving birth.
"I hear that Meghan, provided everything is OK with the baby and herself, will be at Trooping," respected royal reporter Omid Scobie confirmed on his weekly royal podcast On Heir.
"Yes, indeed. It's going to be her first public appearance. That will only be six weeks after the birth of Baby Sussex," Omid's co-host Emily Andrews added.
Last year Duchess Catherine attended the big day out despite still being officially on maternity leave having given birth to Prince Louis two months prior.

Of course Duchess Meghan made her Trooping debut last year, less than a month after her royal wedding.
Dressed in a stunning pale pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera with a matching hat by Philip Treacy, the Duchess of Sussex looked radiant as she rode in the carriage alongside her new husband and then joined the rest of the royals on the balcony.
Having just joined the royal family, the occasion must have been a daunting one for Meghan who was spotted discreetly asking Harry if she should curtsy when the Queen arrived.

If you look closely, Meghan says to Harry: "Do it?" To which he replies "Yes", before bowing his head to his much-loved granny.
Not only that, but The Daily Mail and The Mirror's lip reader also noticed Harry asking his new bride: "Are you OK?" She said "yes" despite apparently admitting she was 'nervous' ahead of standing on the Buckingham balcony for the very first time.

Archie will only be a month old when Trooping rolls around so he's not quite old enough, but someone else might surprise and delight royal watchers with his Trooping debut.
One year-old Prince Louis is expected to appear on the balcony with his mum, dad and older siblings Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, four.
The youngest Cambridge child is around the same age as his big sister Charlotte when she made her first Trooping the Colour appearance dressed in an adorable pink dress that matched her mother, Duchess Catherine's. Prince George was nearly two when he first appeared on the balcony though so we guess we'll have to wait and see if Louis takes after his brother or sister more.
