Meghan Markles Trooping of Colour response to Kate caused yawning silence

Meghan Markle's first Trooping of the Colour parade was marred by a silence after her joke fell flat, according to husband, Prince Harry.

The Duke of Sussex's tell-all book, Spare, has dished the dirt on behind the scenes life of palace life, and there have been awkward exchanges aplenty.

Harry spilled the beans on an uncomfortable exchange with his grandmother the Queen when asking for Meghan's hand in marriage, while clutching dead birds in his hands.

It appears that blushes have never been too far from the Sussexes as proved at Meghan's first Trooping the Colour appearance.

The event is one of the highlights of the royal calendar, and has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years.

It sees over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians coming together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark the occasion.

Streets are lined with crowds waving flags as the parade moves from Buckingham Palace and down The Mall to Horse Guard's Parade, alongside Members of the Royal Family on horseback and in carriages.

The display closes with an RAF fly-past, watched by members of the Royal Family from Buckingham Palace balcony.

In this particular instance, according to the Harry's memoir, everyone present was in a good mood and upbeat.

Then Kate asked Meghan what she thought of her first Trooping the Colour.

Meghan jokingly responded: "Colourful."

However, according to Spare, her comment was met with "a yawning silence threatened to swallow us all whole."
