Trooping the Colour Meghan Markle and Princess Diana

When Meghan stepped off the train at Runcorn the new Duchess of Sussex addressed the Queen as "Your Majesty" accompanied with a curtsey. She did have Queen Elizabeth by her side.

When Meghan Markle announced her engagement to Prince Harry, she also revealed that she would be retiring from her day job: acting.

The duchess and the queen rode in a luxurious train overnight from London to Cheshire Wednesday night, arriving in the small Northern English town Thursday morning.

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.

During their trip, the pair made a round of engagements including arriving by royal train, opening a bridge across the Mersey and enjoying lunch with statesmen in Chester.

Meghan, whose elegant pure white wedding dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, wore a neutral fitted belted pencil dress, featuring an unusual cape shoulder detail. The queen seemed comfortable in the company of the newest senior royal.

Plus, Meghan proved she has mastered the duchess slant ― a pose popularized by the Duchess of Cambridge in which the knees are shifted slightly to the side for the sake of modesty when wearing a dress or skirt.

Meghan has previously opened up about how welcoming Harry's grandmother has been to her.

"This can be shortened to Mama, when Meghan gets to know her as Diana did".

And the Queen sure-footedly defused a moment of confusion as they prepared to get into her Bentley at Runcorn station when Meghan was unsure who should get into the vehicle first.
