The Royal Family's 'standing' order for Buckingham Palace balcony appearances

Meghan Markle-the new Duchess of Sussex-and Prince Harry are apparently supposed to step back a bit on a balcony to allow for Prince William and Kate Middleton to be in a more forward position.

"She was still near the heart of the action", Little says.

That does make her easier to find in photos - when she's not completely blocked that is...

Looking perfectly princess-ly in a pale pink off-the-shoulder gown and a sophisticated fascinator, her dark locks in polished waves at her shoulders, Markle attended the annual Trooping the Color event alongside her IRL Prince Charming. So for her first ever Buckingham Palace balcony appearance, the former TV actress couldn't be front and center like she was at her May 19 wedding.

Later this week, all eyes will be on Meghan again when she accompanies the queen - who turned 92 on April 21 - to three royal engagements in Cheshire, England, on Thursday.

And you thought that lip bite was cute.

James finished the Finals averaging 34 points on 52.7 percent shooting overall (33.3 percent from 3), 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds. Andre Iguodala, playing for just the second time in the Finals, contributed 11 points to the win off the bench.

While there's a deeper implication to the remark - which suggests that joining the royal family lacks "joy" - the internet is focused on having a field day with McCartney's reference to the duchess's "human" side.

As BBC News reports, the British fashion designer was once again quizzed about working with the duchess as she marked the opening of her new London flagship store Tuesday night.

Generally speaking, the order in which the royals appear on the palace balcony is influenced by the Order of Precedence, rather than the line of succession to the throne. "There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out first with his wife".

"There's no one laying this out. and there were a lot of kids who everyone would want at the front", the insider tells People.

"Meghan was still in a good position". The new royal has been submitted by the USA Network for her role as Rachel Zane in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama category, a network representative confirmed to the publication.
