Confirmed: Harry and Meghan coming to NZ

Confirmed: Harry and Meghan coming to NZ

The Duke of Edinburgh, who celebrates his 97th birthday on Sunday, has retired from official public duties and did not attend.

At the culmination of the spectacle, the duo stood side by side on the Buckingham Palace balcony, alongside the rest of the royal party, to enjoy a flypast by historic and modern RAF aircraft, including the legendary Red Arrows who blazed a trail with plumes of red, white and blue. Then she dips into a curtsy, smiling the whole time.

As for Meghan's latest regal fashion choice, the source tells us she's still receiving advice and guidance from her best friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney.

The couple were greeted by the sight of hundreds of Guardsmen in their scarlet tunics and bearskins lined up on the parade ground - Henry VIII's former jousting yard - as the event began.

One guardsman stood out: Charanpreet Singh Lall, a 22-year-old Sikh from Leicester, who wore a black turban. It was a gold Zofia Day bracelet - they go hard in the Royal Family evidently.

"I hope that more people like me, not just Sikhs but from other religions and different backgrounds, that they will be encouraged to join the Army".

Italy summons French envoy as migration dispute escalates
More than 900 people have arrived at the Italian port of Catania in Sicily after being rescued at sea by the Italian Coast Guard. He has accused charities of working with human traffickers but said Italy would not stop rescuing migrant boats itself.

Trooping the Color is a ceremony deeply rooted in the history of the United Kingdom.

Colours, or flags, were carried, or "trooped", down the rank so that they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers. Mayo, Ireland, the newlyweds cut happy and relaxed figures as they paid tribute to Her Majesty at the Trooping the Colour ceremony, at Whitehall's Horse Guard parade. Harry was resplendent in his army uniform and Meghan, sitting in the horse-drawn carriage beside him, wore a pale rose pink Carolina Herrera ensemble and a matching Philip Treacy hat.

Black, grey and white horses, military guards including the Cold Stream and Irish guards in their elaborate dress uniforms and tall fur hats and two enormous drum horses bearing kettle drums and riders took part in the ceremony, which ran for two hours.

Meghan Markle has only been an official member of the royal family for a matter of weeks, and - if she thought she was already receiving enough negative criticism for literally just existing - she's probably been quite surprised at the amount of backlash she's gotten as a Duchess. Her beauty look, though, featured Markle classics: glowing bronzed skin, glossy lips and fluttery lashes.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said he was "receiving medical attention".
