Tens of thousands of Royal fans flocked to Buckingham Palace and the Mall to catch a glimpse of the pomp and pageantry surrounding the celebration for Queen Elizabeth.

Meghan looked absolutely handsome in her pastel pink dress with a matching tilted hat.

Meghan also had her hair styled in a bouncy blowout.

Prince Harry created and is the patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, which runs the tournament, and has previously attended the games in other host cities.
