As for how Meghan fared with the queen, the royal duo looked positively chummy throughout the day's events.
The Duchess of Sussex looked elegant in a bespoke Givenchy pencil dress, whilst The Queen opted for a green outfit to mark the one year anniversary since the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
Meghan wore her hair loose instead of the messy bun we've become accustomed to in recent times and although this look is rather understated, we really like it.
That nervousness later gave way to Meghan seeming to fidget or to be bored or distracted during a conversation with a local official at the bridge opening, psychotherapist Toby Ingham told the Daily Mail. There's certainly a lot about Meghan that makes her unconventional in royal terms, but that clearly isn't stopping her from fitting right in! The queen seemed comfortable in the company of the newest senior royal.
In the caption, Kensington Palace explained that the two royals were "at the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge", watching local schoolchildren perform. After Meghan heard the answer, she got in and the Queen followed.
Meghan appeared to ask the Queen: "What's your preference?". "Meghan should feel very privileged because this is the queen extending an arm of friendship, but not just that".
The Queen and Meghan's first event overnight after disembarking the royal train was to formally open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge, a six-lane tollway which has formed part of one of the UK's largest infrastructure projects in years.
