One part of the event included the royal family standing on a balcony of Buckingham Palace and watching a parade. Afterward, a meme appeared on the internet of a photo that came out from the balcony scene. In the photo, Kate and Meghan could be seen covering their mouths. the Duchess of Cambridge appeared to have a sad expression, while the Duchess of Sussexes’ expression was less clear.
