Meghan Markle stepped out for her first solo engagement with Queen Elizabeth II for the opening of Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire.
The Duchess of Sussex accompanied the Queen on the royal train that stopped at Runcorn station earlier today for the event. Markle chose a modest nude dress that covered the shoulders from Givenchy (the same brand that was behind her bespoke wedding gown) that she styled with a skinny belt, court shoes by Sarah Flint and clutch bag all in classic black.
The head of the British royal family went for a brighter approach and wore a lime green button down coat by Stewart Parvin and matching hat, however her accessories mimicked Meghan’s classic touch. The proceedings started with the guests taking a minute silence to remember the tragic day of that fire at the west London tower block Grenfell a year ago, after which they watched the performance from local school children.
Next for the royal visit will be a tour of the Storyhouse theatre and library, before a meeting with a Syrian settlement group. Lunch will follow with members of the city council at Chester Town Hall, after which they will board the Royal transport back to London.
