Why Meghan Markle stood behind Kate Middleton for her balcony debut

Prince Harry and Her Royal Highness have captured the hearts of the Fijian people, just as they have captured the hearts of billions of people around the world, and we look forward to warmly welcoming them and showing them our special brand of Fijian hospitality.

It's not unusual for television networks to put forward their entire casts for Emmy voting, so it's likely that Meghan has been considered for awards season before.

While many are reporting that the likelihood of Markle receiving her first ever nomination for her final season in the series is slim to none, we can't help but remain hopeful-because we can't think of a more appropriate way for the 36-year-old to cap off her acting career before becoming a fully-fledged princess.

Besides that, the category is very competitive - with the likes of Thandie Newton in Westworld, Millie Bobby Brown for Stranger Things and countless actresses from the cast of Game of Thrones vying for a nomination.

Since 1748, Trooping the Colour has also marked the official birthday of the British sovereign.

"(Meghan) was not as prominent perhaps as some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order", Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, told People magazine.

At Saturday's Trooping the Colour event, all eyes were on newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Accompanying her husband Prince Harry, Meghan earned some style points for her pale pink Carolina Herrera frock and matching Philip Treacy flat-brimmed fascinator.

Prince Harry is a direct descendent of Queen Victoria, to whom the chiefs of Fiji ceded our islands in 1874.

He bows his head and says "yes" before Meghan can be seen curtsying to the queen, alongside Kate Middleton.

Once everyone arrived, the family gathered together on the balcony to observe the iconic fly-past by the Royal Air Force.

There's a pecking order at play here. On her page on the royal family website, Meghan also states she's a "proud feminist".
