Meghan’s day out with the Queen

Coventry Telegraph - - NEWS - The Queen and Duchess of Sus­sex re­ceive flow­ers from lo­cal school­child­ren

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.
