Royal Duo: Meghan Markle And The Queen To Spend More Time Together
The newest member of the royal family will spend more time with the Queen, joining her on her royal duties.
The Duchess of Sussex will be the on that will join the Queen as she carries out a series of official events in Cheshire next week, a royal family website has stated.
This will mark the first time the two are paired together on some royal event.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married just over a week ago on May 19, during a service at Windsor Castle that was a mix of British tradition and modernity. Now his wife will be accompanying the head of state when she opens both the Mersey Gateway Bridge at the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre in the northern England town of Widnes and the Storyhouse Theatre in Chester.
Meghan Markle and the Queen will also be having lunch at Chester Town Hall during their Cheshire tour on June 14.
The Duchess paid tribute to the Queen as an “incredible woman” when she described her first meetings with the head of state.
When interviewed to mark her engagement to Harry, Meghan said: “It’s incredible, I think, you know, to be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honour and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother.
“All of those layers have been so important for me so that when I met her I had such a deep understanding and of course incredible respect for being able to have that time with her.” Meghan went on to say: “She’s an incredible woman.”
Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, has revealed her favourite moment from the royal wedding.
Aside from watching her daughter and Prince Harry recite their vows, Ms Ragland said her highlight of the big day was meeting the Queen.
A source told US Weekly: “Doria is saying the biggest highlight of the wedding, of course after watching her daughter say ‘I do’ to the man she loves, was meeting the Queen.
“It would have been extremely intimidating for anyone, but Meghan and Harry really did a marvellous job of preparing her (with) what to expect.”
