Meghan Markle stepped out for her first solo royal engagement with Queen Elizabeth


The new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle,36, and the Queen, 92, stepped out in northwest England on Thursday morning, in Cheshire, via the royal train. The monarch wore a lime green suit dress by Stewart Parvin and a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, while Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy. The Queen also gave Meghan an elegant pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings, which appear to be a smaller version of her own.This is the first occasion the Queen has taken her new granddaughter-in-law on an official visit. At the Mersey Gateway Bridge Meghan and the Queen met architects, planners and community representatives. They also watched a performance by local school children before Elizabeth formally opened the bridge.


Their next stop was the Storyhouse in nearby Chester, where they were set to meet a Syrian settlement group, watch a performance by the Fallen Angels dance company and catch a medley of songs from a current production of A Little Night Music. “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown. I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days,” Ingrid  Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, appreciated.
