Meghan Markle to join Queen Elizabeth for her first solo royal event following her marriage
The Queen is taking the Duchess of Sussex along with her to unveil a new bridge in Widnes, Cheshire, and open the Storyhouse Theatre
Meghan Markle is all set to make her debut as a royal without Prince Harry by her side on June 14 and to make this day more special, she is going to be accompanied by the Queen! According to People, the Duchess of Sussex will accompany the Queen on a visit to Chester to carry out her first official royal outing.
The Queen is taking Meghan along to unveil a new bridge in Widnes, Cheshire, and open the Storyhouse Theatre. After the unveiling, the two will sit down for lunch at Chester’s Town Hall. Even though Meghan has got a taste of most of the U.K. along with Prince Harry prior to their wedding, this will be the first time that she will be seen with the Queen alone. However, time and again the Queen has shown signs of how she has welcomed Meghan into the royal family with open arms.
In March, Meghan had joined the Queen and the other members of the royal family for a church service celebrating Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey. Even in December Meghan had joined the family during Christmas Day church services. Meanwhile, she attended the celebrations for Queen's birthday along with Prince Harry.
We got a glimpse of how the new royal couple is loved by the Queen when she welcomed George Brandis, the Australian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and the two were spotted having a conversation in her sitting room. What soon became the highlight was a certain picture in the background. On the left-hand side of the photo, there were a couple of pictures that were placed on a table next to the sofa and one of them happened to be a picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Earlier photographs also show more royal family photos adorning various tables and corners of the room.
The photograph shows the newlyweds holding onto each other and smiling at the camera and Meghan's hands lovingly rest against Harry's chest. While the location of the picture is not known, it could in all probability be the handiwork of wedding photographer Alexi Lubomirski who was called to the Frogmore House last December for shooting the engagement photographs of the royal couple. While Harry is seen wearing a blue suit, Meghan is wearing a pale well-fitted dress. Seems like the newlyweds have already made into the Queen's good books and heart.
