  • Why Meghan Markle stood behind Kate Middleton for her balcony debut

It is the first time the duchess has attended an event with the Queen without her husband Prince Harry. Duchess Meghan could be heard asking the Queen in the video, to which the Queen responded, "You go first".

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.

Both smiled as they opened the Mersey Gateway Bridge, a new toll bridge over the River Mersey and one of the United Kingdom's biggest infrastructure projects in recent years. But it also included some learning moments as the Duchess of Sussex becomes familiar with her brand-new royal status. The boat-neck gown that Markle wore for her wedding in May was designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director for Givenchy.

She also had the rare privilege of being invited to travel on the Royal Train with the Queen - something typically reserved for the senior members of the Royal Family like Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a caped top by Givenchy, whilst the Queen opted for a lime green Stewart Parvin suit dress, teamed with a Rachel Trevor Morgan hat.

Although she did not take the top spot, according to a palace source, the order of appearance on the balcony is not a hard-and-fast rule, but rather, a matter of etiquette and deference.

Cohen handed in her notice last September, but it has been reported she has agreed to stay on as interim private secretary.

The Queen and the duchess were set to visit Storyhouse, Chester, then walk to Chester Town Hall to have lunch as guests of Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Today is the opportunity for Meghan to receive a masterclass from the Queen in how to conduct royal engagements.

Ingraham told the Daily Mail: "It appears that the man on Meghan's right is the cause of her fidgetiness".
