Just a month after her royal wedding, Meghan Markle joined Queen Elizabeth in Chesire for their first joint session.


On June 14, 2018, Meghan, 36, and the Queen, 92, took the Royal train. The Duchess of Sussex was invited by Elizabeth to accompany her for a day of appointments.

It's her chance to receive a masterclass from the Queen on how to handle royal engagements.

For the visit, Meghan looked chic in the cream fitted dress with a cape feature at the shoulders. Meanwhile, Elizabeth sported a lime green ensemble and a hat.


The pair were welcomed by David Briggs, the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, when they arrived in Runcorn.

"I understand it is your first trip to the north of England," David told Meghan, according to Daily Mail.

The Duchess of Sussex replied: "That's correct. I'm very happy to be here."

As they prepared to get into the Queen's Bentley awaiting them in the station car park, Meghan's lack of experience in the minutiae of the royal protocol was in evidence.


She even looked uncertain who should get into the vehicle first.

"What is your preference?" she asked Elizabeth.

"You go first," the Queen replied.

Their first stop was the new Mersey Gateway Bridge. The two were spotted talking to Halton Council officials, architects and engineers and others involved in the 25-year project.


The former Suits actress told them that it's a great bridge. She then joined Her Majesty on a stage to watch a dance performance by local schoolchildren.

Meghan was seen laughing and whispering into the monarch's ear while watching the children's performance.

David Parr, Halton Council's chief executive, said: "The Duchess was absolutely interested in the dance performance and in the history of the various bridges that have crossed the river."


Meghan and Queen Elizabeth accepted a bouquet of flowers from two schoolgirls before they left. They both admired the children's performance.

Then, they visited the Storyhouse theatre complex in Chester. They toured the building before the Queen unveiled a plaque to formally open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in the town of Widnes in Halton, Cheshire.
