Scroll through for all the fantastic photos of the British royal family at Trooping the Colour 2018 on June 9.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a pale peach, off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera.

George, who turns five in July, was just as excited as he watched the roaring fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

The newlyweds joined the rest of the royal family while riding in horse-drawn carriages to Buckingham Palace, where they all appeared together on the balcony.

Meghan has become particularly close to her father-in-law, who walked her down the aisle and was instrumental in helping Meghan and Harry with wedding planning.
