Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, will make her first public appearance Saturday since the birth of her son, Archie Harrison Mountbattan-Windsor .

A royal source exclusively told CNN the Duchess is expected to attend the traditional Trooping the Colour, a celebration of the Queen's official birthday on Saturday.

Although the Duchess is still on maternity leave, the royal source says this a family moment, where many members of the royal family will be in attendance. Archie will not be among them.

According to the palace's source, this is a separate affair from the Duchess' official duties of participating in a formal state visit.

Similarly, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, also attended a prior Trooping the Colour during her maternity leave, but did not carry out any official duties.

The duchess and her husband, Prince Harry, welcomed baby Archie into the world last month.

The duchess shared a photo of baby Archie on the couple's Instagram account on her first Mother's Day last month.
