  • The Queen and Meghan Markle's Cheshire trip- all you need to know

Upon arriving she was greeted by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs, who said to Meghan: "I understand it is your first trip to the north of England?"

The Duchess of Sussex shared this on Thursday while accompanying the Queen for a series of engagements in Cheshire.

The pair may have deviated from royal tradition, as only the top four members of the royal family - Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and Camilla - have typically been the only ones allowed to ride the train in the past. They replaced the previous set that had been in use since World War II.

There were a lot of possible destinations as to where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would spend their honeymoon.

Meghan Markle's first joint public appearance with Queen Elizabeth did not go without a small royal faux pas.

And while we can't afford Meghan's designer wardrobe, we can get our hands on that M&S bell sleeve jumper she wore when visiting Brixton back in January. "You go first", said the Queen.


Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a caped top by Givenchy, whilst the Queen opted for a lime green Stewart Parvin suit dress, teamed with a Rachel Trevor Morgan hat.

As they disembarked the train, Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire David Briggs MBE welcomed Meghan, saying: "Welcome to Cheshire". Before heading to Chester Town Hall for a City Council lunch, they took in the production of A Little Night Music.

Here, they observed the national 72-second silence for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy.

In Chester, the pair opened the Storyhouse, a library, theater and cinema complex. Royals author Ingrid Seward told People that Meghan's solo outing with the Queen occurred much sooner than Kate Middleton's following her marriage to Prince William. Soon after, the royals watched a performance by local schoolchildren, before her Majesty officially opened the bridge.

Meghan and the Queen were seated next to each other at the event, and had huge smiles on their faces as they interacted and whispered to one another.
