Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth make their first appearance as a twosome!

The royal duo will set out on their first engagement together on Thursday, on an overnight trip from London to Cheshire on board the lavish train.

The simple cream-colored cape-style dress was as fuss-free as her wedding gown. "She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic", Prince Harry said in their first joint interview with BBC.

And by not wearing a headpiece, which is typical of royalty when appearing with the queen, she may have broken royal protocol. Could Givenchy become the haute couture go-to for the Duchess?

Speaking to the BBC, Stella McCartney said she was "proud" to have been asked to make the stunning halter neck dress for the Duchess of Sussex's reception at Frogmore House.

At one point, Meghan also seemed uncertain about what to do with her clutch purse, and ended up placing it on the floor.

At the annual Trooping the Colour celebration on June 9, which is held in honor of the Queen's birthday, Markle made her official debut on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The close bond between the Queen and Meghan became apparent when the pair sat down at a ceremony to open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge.

Organisers FIFA said the opening ceremony will have a "slightly different format" to previous years and focus on musical acts. He and Garifullina then joined forces for a duet of his single Angels as the crowd at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium sang along.

Meghan was seen leaning in and whispering something to the Queen, which produced fits of laughter and resulted in body-language experts comparing the 92-year-old to a giggling teenager!

Mr Curphey, 32, who met the Royals, said: "The children have been hugely excited and it's been a massive treat for them".

So, does the Queen have a soft spot for Meghan?

Today is the opportunity for Meghan to receive a masterclass from the Queen in how to conduct royal engagements.

In Chester, the pair opened the Storyhouse, a library, theater and cinema complex.

They will then attend a lunch at Chester Town Hall as guests of the city council.
