It's only been a month since Meghan Markle Wednesday Prince Harry, but she's already achieved an unusual "first" for the British Royal Family.

Queen Elizabeth shares a laugh with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, during a ceremony to open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire, England, on June 14.

According to onlookers, after someone gave their well-wishes to Markle and asked her to give their love to Harry, Markle only had kind things to say about her significant other. That means an bad lot to us.

But it gets bigger than that - Meghan has also been invited for a sleepover on board the Queen's own person train - a feat even Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton have not yet achieved.

Perhaps indicative of how she is learning the royal ropes, at one point the Duchess appeared confused over who should enter the royal vehicle first and resorted to asking the Queen what her preference would be.

Meghan's first solo engagement with the Queen went off without a hitch and there will likely be many more in the years to come.

So, does the Queen have a soft spot for Meghan?

McCartney also revealed she and Meghan worked "together" on the dress.

The duchess's outfit - a beige Givenchy dress with caped shoulders - may have not been the ideal choice, Ms James said. A jaunty matching hat and her favourite Launer handbag in black completed the look, along with a three-strand pearl necklace and a large diamond brooch in a bow shape.

A new set of earrings wasn't the only friendly gesture Meghan received from the monarch ahead of their visit to Chester on Thursday.

So while it may have looked like the Royals were excluding Meghan at the occasion, it turns out she was just following protocol. It's like Meghan's been doing this her whole life!

Scrap Mersey Tolls (SMT), a campaign group strongly opposed to charges on the Gateway bridge, moved forward their planned protest to coincide with today's royal visit.

"That's correct", she replied, "I'm very happy to be here".
