The Duchess and the Queen took an overnight ride on the royal train to the county of Cheshire to attend several events, including the opening of a new bridge over the Mersey River in Widnes, near Liverpool.

"What is your preference?"

While the Queen carried her trademark black Launer handbag on her arm, Meghan held a clutch bag in her hand.

"Usually the vehicle would draw up curbside for the monarch to step out and be escorted, with whoever was with her getting out of the other side and going around the auto", said The English Manner Chief Executive Alexandra Messervy.

"Not big faux pas on HRH The Duchess of Sussex's side - just an innocent lack of knowledge".

Queen Elizabeth wore a bright lime-green suit while Meghan donned a form-fitting white dress.

After Meghan came under fire for breaking royal protocol by exposing her shoulders at the Trooping the Colour ceremony, it seems that the American actress has been careful to tick every box with today's outfit.

Meghan, 36, also deemed married life "wonderful". Royals author Ingrid Seward told People that Meghan's solo outing with the Queen occurred much sooner than Kate Middleton's following her marriage to Prince William.

The royal couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been photographed in their first royal engagement since they tied the knot last Saturday. "At one point they were giggling like teenagers together".

So, does the Queen have a soft spot for Meghan? But from the looks of these photos, she has a new partner in crime!

The pair will first be heading to the Mersey Gateway Bridge, before watching a performance by local school children.

Can you blame the public for falling hard for the royal family's version of Thelma and Louise - or Romy and Michele, at least?

'She was nearly identically fun loving and relaxed with her first outing with the Duchess of Cambridge, that's what it reminded me of.
