By now, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have plenty of cute moments under their belts, but the pint-sized royals really outdid themselves on Saturday morning at the Trooping the Colour, an annual parade-like event held in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

Charlotte wasn't the only royal child who caused a scene during the official celebration for Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday. She was christened in Sandringham shortly after, and has been a regular fixture during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official visits.

Meanwhile, Duchess Meghan, who made her very first appearance at the iconic yearly ceremony - looked incredible in a pale-pink Carolina Herrera ensemble, which had a slightly retro feel with a button-down front and open neckline.

The ceremony has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years and also functions as a display of army drills, music and horsemanship.

Kensington Palace is also expected to shortly announce Meghan's first charitable patronage since becoming the fourth member of the Royal Foundation behind by Prince William, Princess Kate, and Prince Harry. Her most notable accessory was a Sphinx-like expression.

Prince Harry is relegated to a spot in a carriage because he is not a royal colonel. Her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, turns 97 on Sunday and has retired from public duties.

Meghan will have been briefed extensively on every aspect of the event. This year was no different, although there's no denying all eyes were on Meghan. 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. It was a day marked largely by laughter.

Ok so for those of you who are wondering what Trooping the colour is and how did it began?

"I'm quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well", he was quoted as saying by the BBC.

The short-sleeve number defied the customary long sleeve variations sister-in-law Kate Middleton has worn since her Trooping debut in 2011. It comes ahead of next week's journey by Meghan and the Queen to a series of engagments in Cheshire. Since then, they have not been seen too often.
