The moment you missed between Meghan and Harry on the Palace balcony

So for her first ever Buckingham Palace balcony appearance, the former TV actress couldn't be front and center like she was at her May 19 wedding. Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance.

According to royal expert and Majesty magazine managing editor Joe Little, there's an etiquette to these things. "There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out [first] with his wife [Duchess Kate]".

Why was she playing second fiddle to Kate Middleton when it was her debut??

So while it may have looked like the Royals were excluding Meghan at the occasion, it turns out she was just following protocol. The parade marks the official birthday of the Sovereign, even though the Queen's actual birthday is on April 21st. Many members of the royal family have never been aboard the royal train with the queen.

And interestingly enough, actress Parisa Fitz-Henley, who portrayed Markle in Lifetime's "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance", is also on the Emmy consideration ballot, claimed ET. "It was deemed by some people to be a bit revealing, but personally I couldn't see any harm in it", Little said about Markle's getup.

If indeed, Meghan Markle was channeling Princess Diana with her dress choices, it would confirm the previous stories about Diana's son - Meghan's husband - Prince Harry being her "secret stylist".

As BBC News reports, the British fashion designer was once again quizzed about working with the duchess as she marked the opening of her new London flagship store Tuesday night.

'Meghan is always asking Harry's opinion.

And Meghan was all smiles as she took in the historic annual event. "This is Prince Harry and his girl, her face does not move".

The precise dates of the visit have yet to be announced but it will be after the Invictus Games in Australia and we expect that the Royal Couple will spend two days in Fiji towards the end of October.
