Caracas.- El príncipe Harry y su esposa Meghan, estuvieron entre los invitados de la familia real que asistieron el sábado a un desfile militar anual en honor a la reina Isabel, el primer compromiso oficial de la duquesa desde el nacimiento de su hijo Archie.
El despliegue se cierra con un vuelo de la Royal Air Force de Gran Bretaña. Meghan Markle, una actriz estadounidense que se casó con Harry en el Castillo de Windsor en mayo de 2018 y ganó el título de Duquesa de Sussex, dio a luz a Archie el 6 de mayo.
En las fotos, compartidas a través de las cuentas de Instagram de los duques de Sussex y los duques de Cambridge, se ve a Meghan sonriente mientras viaja junto a Camila Parker, pareja de Carlos de Gales, y a Kate Middlenton, con quien, según la prensa inglesa, no se lleva nada bien.

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.

The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex travel along the Mall to Trooping the Colour, The Queen's Birthday Parade. Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. Regimental flags of the @BritishArmy were historically described as ‘Colours’ because they displayed the uniform Colours and insignia worn by the soldiers of different units. The name ‘Colour’ continues to be used to this day. The principal role of a regiment’s Colours was to provide a rallying point on the battlefield. This was important because, without modern communications, it was all too easy for troops to become disoriented and separated from their unit during conflict. If Troops were to know what their Regiment’s Colours looked like, it was necessary to display them regularly. The way in which this was done was for young officers to march in between the ranks of troops formed up in lines with the Colours held high. This is the origin of the word ‘trooping’. So, what today is a great tradition began life as a vital and practical parade designed to aid unit recognition before a battle commenced. 📷PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #HorseGuardsParade #QBP2019
