Meghan’s day out with the Queen
THE Duchess of Sussex has enjoyed a day out with the Queen in Cheshire as they took part in their first official engagements together.
Thousands turned out to catch a glimpse of the newlywed as she accompanied the 92-year-old monarch for the first time without her husband, Harry, on official engagements in Runcorn, Widnes and Chester.
Meghan, 36, was by her new grandmother-in-law’s side as she officially opened the Mersey Gateway bridge and the Storyhouse arts centre in Chester, where they also observed a minute’s silence for the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
The pair travelled up to the north-west of England on the Royal Train and arrived to cheers from schoolchildren at a blustery Runcorn train station. The US-born former actress, wearing a cream fitted knee-length dress by Givenchy, was greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire David Briggs MBE and was presented with a posy of flowers by five-year-old Abigail Grimes.
