Prince Harry and a ‘nervous’ Meghan Markle had a quick exchange of words on the balcony of Buckingham Palace yesterday (June 9).
The royals were out for the Trooping the Colour parade in London, to mark the Queen’s 92nd birthday.
Prince Philip, who turns 97 today (June 10), retired from royal duties last year and wasn’t present at the military parade.

Eyes were firmly on Prince Harry and Meghan, who were out in one of their first appearances together since they were married last month.
Wearing a bespoke pink Carolina Herrera design, Meghan looked incredible for the occasion.
When all the royals assembled on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, some took a couple of seconds to have a quick catch up.
A lipreader spoke to the Mirror and explained what Harry and Meghan had said to each other.
The expert said, at one point, Meghan also admitted to Harry she was ‘nervous’.
Harry was then seen to simply ask Meghan: ‘Okay?’
She replied: ‘Yeah, are you?’
Harry then said: ‘Yeah.’

There was a lot of talk of the day’s events yesterday (June 9), with the royal kids stealing the limelight from the balcony at the palace.
Princess Charlotte had a bit of a tumble during the Trooping the Colour but she recovered like a true boss – with a bit of help from her mum.
While standing on the balcony, along with the rest of her relatives, the three-year-old appeared to slip over.
Visibly upset, her mum Kate Middleton was on hand to make it all better, and Charlotte soon cheered up.
The royal children all seemed to be in good spirits – falling over aside.
And Prince George was the talk of the day as well after being shushed by his cousin, Savannah Phillips, who quite frankly, stole the show.
As Princess Charlotte clapped while planes flew overhead, Prince George clapped away also. But Savannah – who is The Queen’s great-granddaughter, placed her hand over George’s mouth when he started to giggle – and it was seriously funny.
Another talking point from the big day came in the form of one of the guardsmen.
A Sikh soldier became the first to wear a turban instead of a bearskin hat during the Trooping the Colour. Amazing!
Guardsman, 22-year-old Charanpreet Singh Lall, from Leicester, will march among 1,000 soldiers taking part in the ceremony.
His turban will be black to match his comrades’ headgear and will feature the Coldstream Guards’ ceremonial cap star.
As reported by the BBC, Charanpreet spoke of his honour to be taking part in the historic event:
I’m quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well.
For myself, being the first turban-wearing Sikh to troop the colour and to be part of the escort it is a really high honour for myself, and hopefully for everyone else as well.
My mum was crying on the day I passed out so I wonder what is going to happen to her when she sees me in this.
Looked like a good day for all.
