Queen and Meghan in first royal visit together in Cheshire

Meghan Markle joined Queen Elizabeth II for their first solo outing together in northwest England, and the new Duchess of Sussex looked like she is becoming more traditionally royal.

The Queen has often made overnight journeys on the Royal Train but Meghan has never been invited on one.

The Duchess of Sussex turned to Givenchy to create the outfit for her all-important first joint engagement with the Queen.

"What is your preference?"

"I do feel her choice of an off the shoulder dress was pushing it for HRH Queen Elizabeth's Birthday celebration", wrote another on social media.

The Queen sported a lime green ensemble; green is the colour adopted by survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire in London a year ago.

Dozens of schoolchildren greeted the queen and Meghan waving Union flags and cheering.

Markle and the Queen marked the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge, a new six-lane toll bridge that connects the towns of Runcorn and Widnes.

Footage from LBC shows a moment of confusion between the pair, as Meghan first offered to let the Queen get in the vehicle first, before asking Her Majesty: "What's your preference?".

There was a moment of awkwardness when the noticeably nervous Meghan was confused who should get in the auto first.

The pair then headed to officially opening the Storyhouse theatre - a library, theatre, cinema, restaurant, bar, community centre and arts hub. The royals observed a moment of silence for the victims at the new venue.

Inside they watched as children performed for them. The Queen and the Duchess were even spotted whispering into one another's ears and giggling during the day's events.
