Meghan Markle reverted back to her wedding dress designer for her first royal visit with the Queen in Cheshire.

The Duchess Of Sussex was seen emerging from the Royal Train – the first time she has travelled on it – on Thursday morning.

She stepped off looking super stylish in a cream design which featured a cape detail over her shoulders with a rounded neck, finished off with a black belt around her waist.

Meghan completed her look with fail-safe black heels and a black clutch.

The pair are in Cheshire for their very first joint official engagement together.

Having been a Duchess for just over three weeks, Meghan is certainly being thrown into the deep end with her duties.

Its a pivotal moment in Meghans fast-track journey to becoming a fully-fledged Duchess, given it is the first time she is alone with her husband Prince Harrys grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

But it doesnt stop there – Meghan was also been invited for a sleepover on board the Queens own person train – a feat even Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton have not yet achieved.

While Harry and William might have traveled on the train, its understood they have never been on there with their grandmother and nor has Kate.

Meghans highly anticipated trip on the Royal Train – which is he Queens private train which ferries her from A to Z for long distance journeys – took place on Wednesday overnight into Thursday.

The Queen has often made overnight journeys on the Royal Train but Meghan has never been invited on one.

Firstly, the Queen and Meghan will attend a lunch at Chester Town Hall, followed by official opening the Mersey Gateway Bridge.

They will then officially open Storyhouse, Hunter Street, Chester.

With the Queens comfort of utmost importance, the train operator even ensures the train doesnt go over any bumps in the track around 7.30am, to avoid the Queens bath water splashing out.

The Royal Train is understood to have costed £900,000 to run from 2016 to 2017. It was used 14 times in a 12 month period and is only available to the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall.
