The Queen and Meghan's first outing together

Trevor Engleson

The Queen couldn't contain her happiness during her first ever joint engagement with her grandson Prince Harry's new wife, Meghan Markle.

Meghan completed her look with fail-safe black heels and a black clutch.

Upon arrival in Cheshire, they were given an enthusiastic greeting from locals.

Meghan cinched the dress with a thin black leather belt, highlighting her slim figure.

The 92-year-old royal donned a Stewart Parvin dress and jacket with a color-coordinated hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan.

Mr Curphey, 32, who met the Royals after the performance, said: "The Queen said she thoroughly enjoyed it and it was lovely to see the history of the bridge on the videos. Meghan turned back to me and said, 'The children did great, by the way'". It was to be followed by events including the unveiling of a plaque to officially open the Mersey Gateway Bridge.

Thousands of people are already waiting at the venues to try and get a view of the pair. The 49-year-old is the monarch's assistant private secretary, and comes from Buckingham Palace to Kensington Palace.

Judging by their interactions today it won't be long until newly-married Meghan will be on "Mama" terms with her husband's grandma. "I think the Queen and Meghan's relationship at this point is one built on respect, and Meghan has shifted her own personal style to adopt a more demure regal look - something I think the Queen will be thankful for".

Cohen handed in her notice last September, but it has been reported she has agreed to stay on as interim private secretary.

The royals then greeted well-wishers who lined their route to Chester Town Hall, where they attended a lunch and concluded their visit.

Members of the public handed the royals flowers as they shook hands and said hello.

During their visit, the Duchess and the Queen observed the national silence in memory of those who died in the Grenfell Tower disaster previous year.

Meghan's earrings were in fact a gift from the Queen.
