The former “Suits” star wore a chic coat and dress designed by Clare Waight Keller, the British Givenchy designer responsible for her much buzzed-about wedding look. She tied together her look with a matching hat by Noel Stewart, wearing her hair pulled into a bun.

The annual official Queen's birthday parade is more popularly known as Trooping the Colour when the Queen's colour is 'trooped' in front of Her Majesty and all the Royal Colonels.Trooping the Colour Queen's birthday parade in London, United Kingdom - 08 Jun 2019

In addition to the prince, the ex-actress’s carriage also featured Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker-Bowles. This marked the first year the foursome rode together, as last year Markle and Prince Harry got their own carriage.

The Duchess of Sussex welcomed Archie five weeks ago and has taken a break from royal duties to spend time with her son at Frogmore Cottage.

Last year, Markle and Prince Harry jetted back from their honeymoon just in time for Trooping the Colour. The duchess opted for a head-to-toe blush look at the event, turning heads in an off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera and a matching flat-brimmed hat. She wore her hair cascading down her shoulders in loose waves.
