Meghan Markle managed to make friends with Queen Elizabeth II

Trooping the Colour Meghan Markle and Princess Diana

In an extraordinary vote of confidence in the new duchess, Queen Elizabeth II invited her to join her aboard the royal train for an overnight trip to Cheshire, in northwest England.

The Queen couldn't contain her happiness during her first ever joint engagement with her grandson Prince Harry's new wife, Meghan Markle.

The pair headed north of London, England to Cheshire, where they helped open the Mersey Gateway Bridge on Thursday (June 14).

As the Queen and Meghan opened the new £1.8billion Mersey Gateway toll bridge between Runcorn and Widnes, about 50 protesters opposed to the £2 toll waved placards. The Queen answered, "You go first".

Meghan wore her hair loose instead of the messy bun we've become accustomed to in recent times and although this look is rather understated, we really like it.

Sure, being the Duchess of Sussex comes with some perks (mostly clothing wise) but as soon as Markle said "I do" every move she will make for the rest of her public life will be analyzed.

Meghan's invitation to travel on board with Queen Elizabeth II was a rare privilege that made royal history.

The Queen, the world's longest-reigning and oldest monarch who has carried out thousands of engagements during her 66-year reign, appeared at ease with the newest member of the Windsors.

Today, the new royal took her bridal look further dressed in a cream dress designed by the very house that created her wedding gown. After Meghan heard the answer, she got in and the Queen followed.

"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. "She has been warmly embraced by both Kate [Middleton] and Camilla [Duchess of Cornwall]", the source said.

First off, the Duchess of Sussex broke the style rules a little bit with a chic pale pink Carolina Herrera dress, while everyone else wore blue.
