After disembarking the Royal Train, the Queen seemingly showed the ultimate sign of acceptance as she ushered Prince Harry's new wife, 36, into the waiting vehicle first.

After the pair spent the night on the Royal Train, the Duchess of Sussex and the Queen arrived in Chester where they'll be conducting a "day of engagements".

Why is this one-on-one visit a big deal?

Meghan is expected to curtsy to all royals of a higher rank to her, which includes the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge.

However, Meghan quickly brushed herself off from the blunder and was later seen with the Queen, who was in stitches over something she had said, as they watched a performance by children from the Andrew Curphey Theatre Company.

Though it's Meghan's first engagement without Prince Harry, she does have the queen by her side, giving her the royal seal of approval and showing once more that the new duchess is being welcomed to the family. Also among the scheduled events were plaque unveilings and performances by local groups.

Newlywed Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, has arrived in Cheshire for a Royal engagement.

As for how Meghan fared with the queen, the royal duo looked positively chummy throughout the day's events.

In Chester, the pair opened the Storyhouse, a library, theater and cinema complex.
