Crowds cheered Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, as they arrived in the English county of Cheshire on Thursday to begin their first official joint royal trip without Prince Harry.
The royals were on the balcony for the Trooping of the Colour. She’s got a attractive childlike smile and her little hands were formed into fists at one point.
“It was, however, a considerate gesture from the Duchess of Sussex to consider where the Queen would like to sit”.
This is the lovely moment the Queen ushered Meghan into a vehicle first after the Duchess of Sussex asked her: “What’s your preference?”
The two seemed to get on well throughout the day, with Meghan whispering into the Queen’s ear during a musical performance by local schoolchildren, and both smiling broadly throughout.
This is the same bracelet the Duchess wore to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday, and also happens to be a nod to the late Princess Diana.
The former Suits actress looked stunning in a cream-colored, Givenchy dress with black belt, which fit her to perfection. There’s certainly a lot about Meghan that makes her unconventional in royal terms, but that clearly isn’t stopping her from fitting right in!
In fact, Meghan’s shoulders couldn’t possibly be more covered.

She added: “With her legs crossed at her ankles and her hands demurely placed across her lap, she might have been doing the “royal” thing”.
She continued: ‘This can be shortened to Mama, when Meghan gets to know her as Diana did.
At one point, a woman said to send love to Harry, and that Meghan should “take care of him”.
He bows his head and says “yes” before Meghan can be seen curtsying to the queen, alongside Kate Middleton.
