About Trooping The Colour:

“Trooping the Colour is a military parade held to celebrate one of the Queen’s two official birthdays. It’s been a royal tradition since 1748, but has even older origins. On the second Saturday of June each year, more than 1,400 of the Queen’s personal troops, known as the Household Division, take part in the parade. You can hear the soldiers before you see them, thanks to the imposing rolling drums of the 10 military bands on display, featuring a total of more than 400 musicians.

It kicks off at 10am, when the Queen leaves Buckingham Palace and travels to Horse Guards Parade by carriage; a journey she used to make on horseback when she was younger. First, she receives the Royal Salute from army officers, before performing an inspection of her troops. The name ‘Trooping the Colour’ refers to the ceremony of parading a military flag in front of the Queen. ‘Colour’ is the name given to the flags of the different regiments of the British army, which were used as a way of making sure soldiers could identify their correct units during the chaos of battle. In order for troops to know what their flags looked like, they needed to be displayed regularly and thus a military tradition was born.”

Even though the parade comes with much pomp and pageantry for the whole country – it is a family affair. Meghan’s attendance at Trooping The Color 2019 and taking a break for maternity leave indicates that she clearly very much wanted to be there and that she and Harry felt this was something they could make work at this early stage in Archie’s life.
 
Arriving together in the same carriage, along with Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Meghan and Harry looked completely adorable together.

In addition to Meghan’s stunning engagement and wedding rings, Meghan was wearing another band on her ring finger that day.

It was reported that it may be an “eternity ring,” which has diamonds set all the way around to symbolize everlasting love. Also sometimes called “infinity rings,” they’re typically given to celebrate the birth of a first child.
 
People said:

Eternity rings, which typically consist of many small diamonds covering the entire circular band, are traditionally given following a momentous occasion, such as the birth of a couple’s first child, or their first wedding anniversary — two milestones which Meghan and Harry have celebrated within the past two months.
The sentimental jewelry pieces have become a bit of a tradition in the royal family, with Prince William giving wife Kate an eternity ring following the birth of their first child, son Prince George.
 

Meghan also wore a pair of navy leather gloves which have not been identified.

Today marked the second time Meghan attends trooping the color – she also attended it last year looking stunning in a Carolina Herrera outfit!

Personally I´m a huge fan of Trooping the Colour, and seeing Meghan there made it even better.
