Here's why Meghan Markle has to stand behind the other royals

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Embark On Fall Tour to Australia New Zealand & More

Meghan Markle is now officially part of The Royal Foundation, the main royal charity previously set up for Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan's husband, Prince Harry, to carry out their philanthropic work. Though Meghan's outfit looked very classy - not to mention season- and weather-appropriate - Cosmopolitan notes that many people still came for the Duchess of Sussex online, attacking her decision to (gasp!) show her shoulders and comparing her to new sister-in-law Kate.

This could be the ideal culmination of Meghan's former career as she embarks on a new life with Prince Harry, who she Wednesday in Windsor on May 19.

"She was not as prominent perhaps as some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order", Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, tells PEOPLE. The annual ceremony involving over 1400 guardsmen and cavalry, is believed to have first been performed during the reign of King Charles II.

As the royal family's website reveals, the impressive yearly event involves "Over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians [coming] together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship, and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday".

Translation: Let's save the best for last. "She was central rather than the alternative of being in the front row and along the balcony to the left or right", he added.

The Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was full of touching tributes to Princess Diana.

Harry's new influence may well be in evidence on Thursday when the Duchess of Sussex will join the Queen to officially open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire.
