Crowds cheered Britain ’s Queen Elizabeth and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, as they arrived within the English county of Cheshire on Thursday to start their first respectable joint royal go back and forth without Prince Harry.

Meghan, who married the monarch ’s grandson in a glittering rite at her Windsor Fortress home last month, traveled via the Royal Teach to northwest England for a day of occasions.

Each royals, heads slightly bowed, observed a countrywide silence in honor of the sufferers of the hearth.

Dozens of schoolchildren greeted the queen and Meghan waving Union flags and cheering. In Chester, an historic Roman city close to the Welsh border, loads clapped and cheered as the two arrived. The queen waved.

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