After a long absence, fans of the Duchess of Sussex have begun to speculate when they will get to see Meghan next, but nobody knows the answer for sure.
Three weeks have almost passed since we last saw Meghan Markle along with her firstborn Archie Harrison. Since then the Duchess has been staying out of the spotlight and resting up at her home Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate with her baby. The new mom and baby deserve all the rest and relaxation they can get. The only guests she has had have been her mother Doria, who stayed for two weeks to help out with the baby, and her close friends Jessica Mulroney and Serena Williams.
But next month on June 8th we might get to see the Duchess attend one of the most important events in the royal annual calendar. Royal Expert Richard Fitzwilliams said: “If you look at the timeline between Kate giving birth to Louis and Meghan and Harry’s wedding, you’ll see that Meghan’s attendance at Trooping of the Color is perfectly possible.” Next week is the royal Trooping of the Color parade that also marks the Queen’s birthday.
Due to the importance of the event and the connection to the Queen, it is very likely that the Duchess of Sussex will make her first appearance there after being on maternity leave.
Kate was in attendance at last year’s Trooping of the Color even though she gave birth to Prince Louis just a month and a half ago.
Trooping of the Color is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies. The tradition dates back with British infantry regiments to the 17th century, although there is proof that it began much earlier. Since 1748, Trooping the Color has also marked the official birthday of the British sovereign.
It is held every year in London on a Saturday in June at Horse Guards Parade by James’ park and also coincides with the publication of the Birthday Honors list. The parade is watched by members of the royal family, invited guests, ticket holders and the general public.
The ceremony has a live broadcast done by the BBC within the UK and is also shown in Germany and Belgium.
The next time we might get to see baby Archie after the Trooping of the Color will most likely be his christening. Royal children are usually christened two or three months after they are born.
