5Queen Elizabeth and Meghan cheered on first joint royal trip

Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, arrived at Runcorn railway station with Queen Elizabeth in the northern county of Cheshire on Wednesday morning.

Meghan opted to wear a gorgeous cream-colored cape dress designed by Givenchy for her first royal engagement without Prince Harry.

This is the tricky moment where the Duchess of Sussex was ushered into a vehicle by the Queen, after she first offered to let the monarch go first.

The Queen and Meghan's first event overnight after disembarking the royal train was to formally open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge, a six-lane tollway which has formed part of one of the UK's largest infrastructure projects in years.

They'll then open the Storyhouse Theatre together, before having lunch at Chester's Town Hall.

Has not passed also month from the moment Meghan Markle officially became a member of the British family, and her shoulders fell important mission - to escort Queen Elizabeth II in the trip to Cheshire.

The queen and the former actress rode the royal train to the city of Chester, in northwest England, for a busy day of events.

But Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief at Majesty magazine, explained that once the formalities are out of the way, she can refer to the Queen as something else.

And while she can still technically act if she wants to (the interesting reason why, here), the newlywed explained at the time that she was keen to transition into the new phase of her life as a royal duchess.

Meghan Markle reverted back to her wedding dress designer for her first royal visit with the Queen in Cheshire.

Green is the colour adopted by survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire in London exactly a year ago and both royals, heads slightly bowed, observed a national silence in honour of the 71 victims.

Meghan wore a bespoke pencil dress by Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy and pearl earrings that were a present from the Queen.
