For the first time ever Queen Elizabeth II has gone on a Royal outing with Duchess Meghan. The two traveled by train to northwest England on Thursday.


Prince Harry was nowhere to be seen as the pair attended to their Royal duties. The Royal Family confirmed the visit via Twitter.

Duchess Meghan, 36, went to northwest England on Thursday morning with the Queen, 92. For the outing, the monarch wore a lime green suit dress by Stewart Parvin.

She added a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan. On the other hand, Meghan looked stunning in a light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy.


The pair rode by Royal train in Runcorn where they spent the night aboard. They disembarked in Cheshire, some 200 miles from London.

The train is the Queen’s favored travel option. It allows her and other senior Royals to work and relax en route their destinations.

When the duo got off the train, they were greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs. He told Meghan that he’d heard it was her first trip to the north to which she replied, “That’s correct. I’m very happy to be here.”


The first Royal engagement was the Mersey Gateway Bridge, where Meghan and the Queen met architects, planners, and community representatives. The two also watched a performance by local school children before the monarch formally opened the bridge.


Next on their agenda was the Storyhouse in nearby Chester. There they met a Syrian settlement group, watched a performance by the Fallen Angels dance company, and listened to a medley of songs from a current production of A Little Night Music.


Their last appointment was a lunch at Chester Town Hall with locals which were brought together by the council. This outing was seen as the Queen’s way of helping immerse Meghan into public Royal engagements.


“It is the way of the royal family—all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny,” the Queen’s former press secretary, Charles Anson said.

Seward, the author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, added that the monarch knew the potential pitfalls of not giving new members a guiding hand. The author shared that the Queen couldn’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown.
