Meghan Markle shines in her first solo appearance with the Queen

Though it's Meghan's first engagement without Prince Harry, she does have the queen by her side, giving her the royal seal of approval and showing once more that the new duchess is being welcomed to the family.

The two royals were greeted by cheering crowds in the centre of the city of Chester, where they observed the minute of silence.

But Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief at Majesty magazine, explained that once the formalities are out of the way, she can refer to the Queen as something else. She paired this with a thin black belt and black pointed-toe pumps.

They wore contrasting colours, the Duchess choosing a cream Givenchy pencil dress and the Queen in a lime green coat-dress and matching hat.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a frock by Givenchy for the outing, the same designer as her wedding dress.

Firstly, the Queen and Meghan will attend a lunch at Chester Town Hall, followed by official opening the Mersey Gateway Bridge.

The royal pair watched children from local schools perform a dance show celebrating 1,000 years of crossing the river and Meghan told their coach Andrew Curphey: "The children did great".

At least for now, we all have to get used to a pantyhose wearing, nude nail polish rocking, sort of quieter version of Meghan.

Meghan Markle's new life as a royal comes with more than it's fair share of public scrutiny. Only once, in 2003, an exception was made for Prince William - then he took a ride on The Royal Train as part of her tour on the occasion of birthday.

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

"In the main floor at @Storyhouselive, The Queen and The Duchess of Sussex sit to view a performance of 'Drop in the Ocean.' #RoyalVisitCheshire", Kensington Palace tweeted.

The pair travelled by train to Leicester from Kings Cross St. Pancras Station back in 2012 and were later joined by Prince Philip.
