Duchess Meghan and the Queen mark Grenfell Tower fire anniversary

Trooping the Colour Meghan Markle and Princess Diana

Meghan looked stunning in an ivory cape dress from Givenchy - the designer she also chose for her wedding dress - with a black belt, black stiletto heels, and black clutch bag.

They wore contrasting colors, the duchess choosing a cream Givenchy pencil dress and the queen in a lime green coat-dress and matching hat. "She'll have to go through the audition process like everybody else".

The 36-year-old Duchess and Queen Elizabeth, 92, were in Cheshire on Thursday for the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge and Chester's Storyhouse Theatre. It was to be followed by events including the unveiling of a plaque to officially open the Mersey Gateway Bridge.

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out on Thursday morning for a visit to Cheshire alongside the Queen on her first solo outing with the monarch.

This is how Kate Middleton is showing Meghan Markle the royal ropes
Meghan Markle has revealed what many women around the globe have been wondering: what being married to Prince Harry is like. The Queen told her granddaughter-in-law that she should ride the auto first.

Meghan and the Queen had travelled to Cheshire overnight on the Royal Train.

The final engagement of the day was in Chester, where the Queen and Meghan were cheered by crowds who had been waiting hours for their arrival.

Spain's newly appointed agricultural minister, Luis Planas, also opposed the tariff's impact, saying it is unjust. The goods on the list targeted specific industries that China identified as part of its Made in China 2025 plan.

The newlywed duchess, who married the Duke of Sussex in a star-studded ceremony in Windsor last month, was nervous, repeatedly touching her hair.

The royal pair watched children from local schools perform a dance show celebrating 1,000 years of crossing the river and Meghan told their coach Andrew Curphey: "The children did great".

Abigail Grimes, a pupil at Runcorn's Beechwood Primary School, was chosen to present the duchess with a posy of flowers as it was the youngster's fifth birthday.

The day is likely to serve as a masterclass in royal etiquette for Meghan, who will get to see how Britain's longest-reigning monarch navigates these more mundane events, which are a staple part of life as a working royal.

The Clinton email report is coming
The inspector general has referred the matter to the USA attorney for the District of Columbia for further investigation. The inspector general's report will be released in full later on Thursday.
