That adorable moment when Prince Harry tried to calm a 'nervous' Meghan during her first Trooping the Colour ceremony
Lipreading experts have deciphered how Prince Harry guided his wife through the ceremony and even asked her if she was alright at one point before helping her calm her nerves.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married on May 19 but it looks like the new Duchess of Sussex is still trying to wrap her head around the royals and their lifestyle. Harry and Meghan joined other members of the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for Saturday's Trooping the Colour flypast during the Queen's birthday parade ceremony. While the newlyweds looked stunning, it could be seen that Meghan was a bit nervous.
According to Mirror, a lip-reading expert insists that Harry tried to ensure that Meghan was feeling fine during the ceremony. He reportedly asked if she was doing ok, to which she anxiously responded: 'Yeah'. After a little while, it appeared that Meghan admitted to feeling a little nervous about being in front of the crowd and around the royals. Meanwhile, in another exchange, Harry reportedly says, "Errr. When you get into it I'll tell you more later", although it is not clear what he is referring to in this.
Moments later, Harry tries to make Meghan feel at ease as he describes the event to her and says, "Then there's the flypast and then we all look up to the sky." This comes after the palace confirmed the first official royal tour of Meghan and Harry after their marriage. The couple, who recently returned from their honeymoon will take a tour to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand in the Fall.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn,” reads the announcement made by the Kensington Palace. “Their Royal Highnesses have been invited to visit the Realms of Australia and New Zealand by the countries’ respective governments. The Duke and Duchess will visit the Commonwealth countries of Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.”
However, before Meghan heads for her the tour with Harry, she will be seen on a royal visit with the Queen. It is very rare that Queen Elizabeth is spotted with the younger royals and Meghan happens to be one of the lucky ones to get this privilege. “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand,” Ingrid Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, recently told People. “It’s all about the monarchy. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown.”
“She doesn’t want 70 years of hard work to be for nothing,” he added. ”I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.” There is no doubt that Meghan will be able to learn a lot about royal life and the necessary etiquette during her trip with Queen Elizabeth.
