Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined The Queen and members of The Royal Family at the annual Trooping the Colour, to celebrate Her Majesty’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour orginated from traditional preparations for battle and has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years. In the 18th century, guards from the royal palaces regularly assembled to “troop" colours or flags down the rank, so they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers. In 1748, it was announced this parade would also mark the Sovereign’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour is performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies for The Queen’s birthday parade, allowing them to pay a personal tribute to Her Majesty. Today over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians came together on Horse Guards Parade in London in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare. The parade concludes with a 41-gun salute fired by The King’s Troop, following which The Queen leads members of The Royal Family back to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force flypast display.

She didn’t have to bid farewell to the editorial world even with her website’s closure. One of the greatest honors in the fashion publication industry has been bestowed to her. Duchess Meghan is set to edit for British Vogue’s September 2019 issue, Us Weekly reports. And yes, it’s a pretty big deal.
Us Weekly reported from a source that the upcoming magazine issue will feature an opinion piece from the Duchess herself. Aside from herself, she’ll also be rounding up strong female figures to write for pieces for the issue. The source said that the Duchess is “bringing a selection of female change-makers on board to write their own personal essays.” This leaves us wondering, will her best friend and outspoken feminist Priyanka Chopra be in it?
The source continued to reveal that Meghan will pose for “new photos that haven’t been taken yet.” Hopefully, her royal husband Prince Harry and their baby Archie will have some involvement in the photo-op. It is reportedly set to take place in Frogmore Cottage.
It’s exciting how Meghan will bring her brand of creativity and outspokenness into the pages of British Vogue.
