They disappeared from the public view for a couple of weeks following their marriage at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, leading to speculation they had enjoyed a secret and private honeymoon.

The pair returned to work at Trooping The Colour on Saturday, June 9, which saw Meghan’s first appearance with the royal family on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch a fly-past.
