While the Queen has had a well-documented and longstanding love affair with Malta, where she enjoyed a few carefree years with Prince Philip following their wedding in 1947, Meghan's ties to the country run much deeper.
According to them, Harry was keen to check in on his new wife, asking, "Okay?" before the flypast began.
When Prince Harry is with her, Meghan doesn't need to curtsy for Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice but they will have to curtsy for her. Sure, there's a place for tradition, but Markle has a whole team helping her dress, and they wouldn't let her disgrace the entire royal family.
A second lip reader tells The Mirror the new Duchess then admitted to being "nervous"- fair enough, given the eyes of the world were glued on her at the time.
Prince Harry kept Meghan clued in about how the event works. Are you a fan of the royal family?
At the very important celebration, Meghan opted for a custom Carolina Herrera ensemble that bared her shoulders and arms, which apparently is a no-no for royal women at the yearly event-at least until now.
Missing from the balcony was Prince Phillip, who celebrated his 97th birthday yesterday, and young Prince Louis - third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Either way, a lot of people leapt to Meghan's defence after the outcry, arguing that some people were focusing too much on archaic rules, and not enough on the fact that the Duchess looked incredible. The Queen was given her own carriage and was the last to leave Buckingham Palace. I know the Australian people will greet Their Royal Highnesses with great warmth and excitement wherever they go during their time here.
