So regal! Our favorite sisters-in-law, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, pleased royal fans everywhere at Trooping the Colour on Saturday, June 9 — and that's because we got to watch them curtsy for Queen Elizabeth at the same time!
The two stood on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday. Kate donned a baby blue dress with a matching hat, and Meghan wore a baby pink off-the-shoulder dress with a matching hat. And even though they weren't in sync with their outfits, they were in sync with their respect for the Queen that day!

Even though Queen Elizabeth is bonding faster with Meghan than she did with Kate, it's been reported that the mom-of-three has been helping Meghan adjust to royal life since she met her. "[Kate told Meghan] that if she ever needed anything, she shouldn’t hesitate to get in touch. Keep in mind, the aides advising Meghan now are of the same position at the palace as the ones who advised Kate when she first got engaged to William," a royals insider recently told Us Weekly. "Harry made sure that his brother and sister-in-law are both available to Meghan. You can’t trust anyone more than family."
However, now that Meghan and Harry are married, we imagine there may be some competition between Kate and Meghan (did you notice Kate standing in front of Meghan on the balcony?). Not only did Meghan and Harry's wedding come right around the time Kate welcomed royal baby No. 3, Prince Louis, Meghan was also allegedly named the most beautiful royal over Kate. Right before the wedding, Meghan also surpassed Kate as the most popular royal. We can't wait to see how they act at future royal outings!
