Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle finally get an alone time to bond!
On June 14, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex will carry out her first official royal outing with the monarch. Meghan, who is currently thought to be on her honeymoon with Prince Harry, will accompany the Queen on a visit to Chester, which is about 165 miles northwest of London.
The Queen, 92, is taking her new granddaughter-in-law to officially unveil a new bridge in Widnes, Cheshire, and open the Storyhouse Theatre before the royal pair sits down for lunch at Chester’s Town Hall.
While Meghan toured the U.K. alongside Harry in the run-up to their May 19 wedding, this will be the first time she has joined the Queen on her own.
The royal engagement, which includes several stops in the area throughout the day, is often called an “away day” for the Royals. It proves that Meghan, who has made no secret of her desire to “hit the ground running” after the royal wedding, is ready to kick off her public engagements — both alongside members of the royal family and on her own.
