Duchess Meghan Markle & Queen Elizabeth Avoid a Royal Mishap at Their Car

Meghan Markle

The Duchess of Sussex showed her nerves on her first joint engagement with the Queen, but there was genuine warmth between the monarch and Meghan, a body language expert said. The American actress made the decision to cover her arms and shoulders after critics deemed the off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress that she wore to during the Trooping the Colour celebrations last weekend, "inappropriate". She accessorized the look with a black clutch by the same designer and black high heels.

Dressed in a bespoke Givenchy dress, American actress Meghan proceeded towards the vehicle with The Queen, 92, before stopping and asking Her Majesty: "What's your preference?", to which the Queen motioned a "you go first" gesture.

There were a lot of possible destinations as to where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would spend their honeymoon. Jewellery wise, we can see the handsome engagement ring twinkling alongside her wedding band, and she has also accessorised with a diamond bangle and a pair of pearl and diamond earrings.

It seems Meghan Markle gets along with her in-laws just fine! "I'm very happy to be here".

"You go first", the Queen replied.

Both royals, heads slightly bowed, observed a moment of silence in honour of the victims of the fire.

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

Their visit includes the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge and Storyhouse in Chester.

Inside they watched as children performed for them.

There were huge cheers as the Queen took to one side of the crowd and the Duchess to the other.

Meghan, in contrast, did not wear a hat, and wore her hair down.

Markle handled her debut on the balcony with grace and ease, but of course, she's still getting used to being a royal, so it's no wonder she needed a little assistance from husband Prince Harry at the event as well.

But it gets bigger than that - Meghan has also been invited for a sleepover on board the Queen's own person train - a feat even Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton have not yet achieved.
