Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, was all smiles on her first official outing alone with Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday. Meghan and the Queen greeted the crowds on their royal visit to the Chester Town Hall.

Meghan Markle, 36, married Prince Harry, 33, last month to become The Duchess of Sussex.

She made sure to dress conservatively for her first official engagement with the Queen after the public uproar over her off-the-shoulder dress earlier this week.

Meghan wore a beige wool dress featuring a short cape by Givenchy Haute Couture. The cape covered every inch of her upper torso, leaving only her lower arms exposed.

Many observers commented on Meghan's body language which they say looked a little stiff.

    She’s looks classy. Like it.

  • Ghost

    Duchess in training! I love the fact that the QUEEN has taken Megan under her wing...she's going to be just fine...and she looked GREAT!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    If that ain't one of the fakest smiles I've ever seen ?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I think the designer outfits have to be approved by the Queen's ppl before she or Kate are allowed to wear them.

  • Allihave2say

    Meghan is still in the adjustment learning stage. She's confident but cautious. It seems the Queen Mother likes Meghan as she is seen smiling when they are together. The Queen invited Meghan to ride with her on the train, a treat that has never been extended to Kate the Kid Maker and Willie Wonka.

  • the guest

    They could make a billion dollars on a Buckingham Palace brand of relaxer because Meghan's hair is always as the old folks say laid.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Who cares...

  • the guest

    The queen adores her. It's obvious.

  • Dahl

    Of course she’s stiff, she’s with the queen and still in training. She looks great tho...

  • pure_rachet

    her white is showing. I'm 36 and don't look like that. Plus bad posture but I do think she is a pretty girl still. Should have stuck with acting though.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Black women should take notes from Lady Doria Ragland and raise our daughters like Meghan Markle to be the best and classy and to only entertain princes and men of means. I wish I could open up an etiquette training school for young black girls. Being a lady needs to come back in style, it’s a lost art form. #LevelUpBlackWomen

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Give her time hopefully she'll adjust.

  • TiffaniZ

    Wow. she looks super skinny

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    She looks elegant and beautiful. No complaints whatsoever. Also ive always thought that givenchy chanel and balenciaga were way better than gucci.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    They wouldnt go to your school for free. You are greatly underestimating how many loveeeeeee dirty ? And dysfunction. But i love your idea

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yep. It's the only way you can look. My neighbor his 90 years young and when going anywhere with her -- even if it's to Costco I make sure to look nice.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I was thinking the same thing, but I didn't feel like arguing about it.

    Her elbows and her shape are very yt.

  • Candance

    Shes probably a little nervous!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL

  • IssaOpinion

    I've noticed she wear those shoes alot.Of course she may have several pairs alike.

  • Soda

    You don't know how many frogs she jumped with before meeting her prince. And it's not like he searched and found her because she was elegant. He saw her on tv.

  • Ni Ni

    I know i cant wear Meg's shoes. I'd be teeter totting and leaning on the wall every other minute?.

  • Ni Ni

    Maybe, they do look a little worn on the top a little. But, I know how hard it is to give up those favorite shoes.

  • IssaOpinion

    Stop acting has though this lady is a Saint.Her friend hook her up on a blind date and Harry was the guy.She has been married before therefore she is definitely not a Virgin.Im happy for her ,but to say black women needs to get notes from her mom I disagree.

  • MsPam

    I’m not taking notes from a woman who married trailer trash and his dysfunctional family! Do you think Princes and men of means are better than the average man?! You better be under 21 talking crazy! ? ????????

  • MsPam

    +one million times!

  • BadAss Will

    They looked very happy to me. The Usually stiff lip queen actually was caught smiling and laughing multiple times. I still believe they murdered Princess Diana and wanna kill Fergie...

  • T3

    Right and that should be expected. You know folks always gotta go deeper. SMH

  • Liah

    She’s looks beautiful elegant and happy?!

    She looks like a hostage in that dress.

  • Rico768

    is it me, or does Meghans feet look huge?
    love to see the Queen smiling and seemingly relaxed, hopefully its not just a show.

    but lets talk about the Queen being 93 and still walking, driving, handling business and putting the smack down, hope I can live to see that age and be in great shape and spirits.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nice dress..she shoulda worn that down the aisle....I ain never seen the Queen smile so much. Lort!!!! Meghan ain got no as.

    smr: Many observers commented on Meghan’s body language which they say looked a little stiff.

    There goes the subtle shade....ha,ha,ha!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    BAW: I still believe they murdered Princess Diana and wanna kill Fergie...

    I get Diana but why waste a good murder conspiracy on Fergie?

  • BadAss Will

    Because she have dirt on them... They wanna control everything

  • NeverSurprised

    Black mothers should raise their daughters to be well-educated, articulate and kind, and to have enough self respect not to waste their lives on men who are not deserving.

    HOWEVER, encouraging little black girls to save themselves for a white prince whose family made their money by BUYING AND SELLING BLACK PEOPLE FOR GENERATIONS is NOT my idea of "marrying well."

    There are thousands of well-educated, responsible black men who have worked hard for what they have. The Windsors, conversely, earned their money off the blood of black and brown human beings. So spare me the Cinderella musings.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Her dress is the complete opposite of the off shoulder dress that got her into trouble this week. She is trolling the British media.

  • NeverSurprised

    Not to mention the fact that this is the family that INVENTED the North American slave trade. A few generations ago, but SAME family.

  • Logan Roberts

    Meghan looks cute & sophisticated. Those edges are laid baby ?

  • Kimberly King

    Love that green. I wonder if the queen is mean as hell behind closed doors. Meghan looks cute here. I’ve been loving the dresses she’s been wearing lately. However, I didn’t like her wedding dresses. Too loose and boring.

  • Kimberly King

    I get your point. But Meghan did the same thing her mammy did: Got with a nasty white man. Besides that, yes you have a point. We want our black girls and black boys to respect themselves and their body parts. Educate themselves and grow into the amazing adults I and everyone else know they can be.

  • Fire & Ice

    Lol. looking at the pics....um yeah she's trolling. Oooohhhh she's petty ???

  • Coco_Butter

    Nor Camilla who I think the Queen doesn’t like but just tolerates for Charlie

  • Fire & Ice

    "Kate the kid maker and Willie wonker" ????. Meghan is like a breath of fresh air, in that old, stale, boring family. The queen is smart....Meg is the new rock star in that family.

  • HIS4EVA

    I'll tell you one thing she wasn't stiff about... I hear the ? is very pleased. If you watch the video of them leaving today Megan is learning quickly?

  • MJ

    She looks beautiful but i was thinking this too

  • HIS4EVA

    Who that girl he been toting around?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Girlllllllllllllllllll. Hm

    Believe it. Money made off of the blood, sweat and tears of our ancestors.

    I dont think you're allowed to have assss in the kingdom lol.

  • Rhondalousey

    Well what happened the other day?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Hahaha... Well she gon fit right in.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I don't know but I read it the other day that she had to return her wedding gifts, especially the designer outfits because any designer clothing has to be approved by the Queen B. I guess so certain companies don't get free advertisement.

  • Ms. Jackson

    It's that 180 proof she drinks. The Queen drinks for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a night cap...., plus she may have a glass of wine inbetween. This was confirmed by her a chef that worked there for several years. Shiiid, she may even be hitting the but too. (Not being disrespectful to the Queen) You Neva Neva know... ?

  • Rico768

    Doc tells me not to drink alcohol. That 180 proof make my heart explode LMAO

  • Ms. Jackson

    Oh how I loved Princes Di! I remember watching the royal wedding as a kid. Princess Di was not a push over. She went in there with her head held high and did what she wanted to do!

  • Ms. Jackson

    Baybaaaay lemme tell YOU! All I've ever been able to drink is my beloved Chardonnay, and a Heineken every now and then... The then is tonight lol. I have one of these cute baby ones, I think it's 8oz. Anyway... Liquor have me crazy and, sick!

  • Allihave2say

    Kate will continue to hate. She's starting age rapidly, Kate that is. I hope she's done having children. She looks hungry through out all her pregnancies, I be screaming "girl eat a damn burger and a shake"

  • Allihave2say

    Wasn't Camiilla a desperate drunk waiting in the gutter for Charles? Charles left her hanging, married Diana and had kids with her and Callous Camilla was still there wait since the Stone Ages, old drag faced drunk and all. Camilla and Kate were so disrespectful during the wedding. The other thing I noticed at the flying event, Kate made it a point to make sure she stood out in front of Meghan. yet all the news stories were still about Meghan.

  • CookieMobster

    Have y'all ever watched The Crown? If that's true then the Queen is a bad ass!!!??

  • Coco_Butter

    I think Charles was dating Camilla first but she was married and he needed a heir that’s why he married Diana.
    I don’t think Charles loved Diana

    I think Charlie kept seeing Camilla on the low. I don’t know about the drunk part but she looks like a woman that can handle her liquor lol

    As with Kate I think she low key is throwing shade at Meaghan because Meaghan is getting more popular

  • Luv Pitties

    I read that she no longer speaks to her mother no phone calls or texts. I hope that isn’t true.

  • Dainese

    Preggers or nah?

  • Cici

    Yes they were VERY disrespectful, and it was pissing me off.

  • Nicol B

    That's what they call as in the UK. Memba Pipa?

  • Fire & Ice

    Funny you said that Kate looks old. Yesterday at the grocery store, my sister said the same thing. My sister can't believe Meg is older than Kate and Willie wonker ???. Kate's probably dying with envy. Even when she becomes Queen, everyone will still be focused on Meg.

  • Fire & Ice

    Child I would never want to be under this type of scrutiny or pressure. Everything you do is watched and critiqued.

  • Malcom Flex

    Nah

  • Malcom Flex

    You can. do it on teachable. easy.

  • Malcom Flex

    Both ladies leveled up can't won't hate. Hate the game not the playas.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Hey boo ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Cute dress, she pulls it off well. They look like they get along and the Queen looks she's happy to be around her.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I agree, This is her FIRST outing with the Queen and they have so many rules, regulations and traditions she has to consider but this is the comment: "Many observers commented on Meghan’s body language which they say looked a little stiff." SMH

  • DETROITTOATL

    what channel that's on. I am staying in all weekend.

  • DETROITTOATL

    I know right. I love the way the Queen dresses also. She looks like a no nonsense kick arse lil lady. LOL

  • Simone

    Cute dress. I really like it.

  • DETROITTOATL

    Yup I really believe that.

  • kre

    I'm looking at her eyes, she doesn't look happy. She always looks beautiful though.

  • missmiami305

    She looks very thin. Hopefully, Meghan and Kate are not on the same diet. The dress is lovely but looks uncomfy. It seems as if Meghan hasn't found her signature style. Her body language is stiff.

    Auntie, what your folks across the pond have to say about their biracial princess that all these black women are excited about

  • missmiami305

    She prolly doesnt speak as much as she used to and i can believe no texts are allowed. She is probably only allowed to use secure landlines. I was hoping her mom would relocate to be closer.

  • missmiami305

    U see it too

  • CookieMobster

    Netflix's baby. When I first started watching it I had to pause a lot and Google the events to kinda figure out what was going on, but once I watched it i was hooked

  • AmericanDream

    I’m surprised someone would abandon their acting career to become princess of a country with year round crappy weather

  • DETROITTOATL

    He did as per Diana's interviews on Netflix. It's called In her own words. But it was very good.

  • DETROITTOATL

    Noted.

  • CashleyBankz

    Says the person who’s never been there ??? fawwk off

  • DETROITTOATL

    People say the eyes tell it all.

  • DETROITTOATL

    Well dayum, Tell em how you really feel.

  • CookieMobster

    When you get to the one where she straight handled a reporter talking shit, and was a classy gangsta to Jackie O.... You'll be like YASSS Queen come THRU!! You will also really see that their life is actually no fairy tale. It made.me feel sad for her and the whole royal.fam.

  • Luv Pitties

    No, the article read that she is ignoring her mother’s calls and texts.

  • ???TheRider???

    She looks happy when she looks at Harry and you can tell he's absolutely smitten!

  • ???TheRider???

    Rumor is Harry is Lizzy's favorite over Wills, therefore she loves some Meghan because she makes Harry happy.

  • ???TheRider???

    Fergie knows too much about the RF especially Andrew and how he bats for the other team occasionally. They pacify her by letting her live with Andrew even though they're divorced.

  • BadAss Will

    That's why she cheated probably no sex.

  • Candance

    Right, I get nervous when I have a meeting my director, imagine going to meet the Queen!!!!! People and their observations sometimes....

  • AmericanDream

    Sorry my dear but Dreary weather is the norm in the U.K. . Grey skies and constant rain year round . It’s not my job to accommodate your soft as whipped cream feelings

  • CashleyBankz

    I’m from England I’m well aware of the weather. “Crappy” is subjective I guess. I think it’s the most beautiful type of weather.

  • Arama

    So do I. I was just in London, and we had the most divine weather.

  • Cannelle

    I went to London one year ago and the weather was great. Like many places, it depends on the time of year you visit. I purposely choose not to visit in the winter and instead went south in Europe.

  • Cannelle

    Wow, really? That's sad. I hope not. Else it was all for show, I guess.

  • Cannelle

    They sure are! I need to know what products she uses (and I know that I am not alone), because my natural hair looks like her natural hair.

  • Cannelle

    That's a cape? Good to know, else I wouldn't know what to call it.

  • pure_rachet

    Hey!!

  • MJF

    Wasn't the wedding like 2 weeks ago? Lmao you people kill me with your made up rumors...

  • Allihave2say

    They have real cute slot machine named Fire and Ice. The graphics are super nice. Just thought I'd share.
    Meghan needs to eat some food she's thinner than Kate and the Queen Mother and Kate has always looked hungry to me.Now she's bigger than Meghan. Someone on DM said Meghan is wearing a weave because her natural hair is very thin. Some pics may make that true.The Brits are hating on her hair, mannerisms and hanging with QM.

  • Allihave2say

    I don't think it was lost on the Queen Mother either. She seems to have taken Meghan under her wings. Meghan got to ride with her on the train and none of the rest have ever done that. QM told Harry not to come along. Her normal angry lizard scowl is now an open smile. :) Kate looks as old as the Camilla.

  • Allihave2say

    I remember that about Charles and Camilla. Camilla was gutter. At that flying event Kate made it a point to stand infant of Meghan to block her from the cameras. Meghan does love the cameras, they find her and she seeks them. Don't let Meghan and Harry get pregnant, them B's gonna go into cardiac arrest.

  • Fire & Ice

    Fire & Ice slot machines ?. Yeah Ive notice a lot of white women, Americans included, are hating on her. They wished so bad it was them. This biracial woman bothers the hell outta Dem ???.

  • Rhondalousey

    Omg, that's alot.

  • Cici

    Yes nothing but jealousy, especially because she’s half black. I love how refreshing the Queen looks when out with her.

  • Allihave2say

    TBH I'd forgotten that the Queen knew how to smile. She so seldom does so and has been cheesing when she smiles with Meghan. The bitter Brits on daily mail are losing their minds over Meghan. They want so badly for the Queen to be annoyed with Meghan it's pathetic.

  • Cici

    Lol I know right I did too for a minute. It’s sad they can’t let us be great. Smh

  • Allihave2say

    Meghan is doing her greatness. She has a lot of work to do. It'l be interesting to see the progress of the Monarchy with this new marriage. They've changed so much. The drunken Camilla is now a Duchess. They turned college thot Kate in the a Kid Making Duchess. Now make comes in divorced, religious hopping and biracial. Yeah Meghan is the new Queen. She and Harry will be the talk for years.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Oh, that's why her shoulders are wrapped up like a big ole birthday present? !

  • Dora LaBelle

    If that's the case, Meghan and her mammy are a minority since there are twice as many black men with nasty white women!

  • Dora LaBelle

    Sometimes you have to go with what keeps your feet from hurting.

  • Kimberly King

    Agreed. It’s all nasty. I look down on black men who date those animal hunchers.

  • parisjok

    she has a beautiful black mom but she took after her white dad and has always choose to live in a white world and will have white babies

  • parisjok

    she will continue to be thin and eat very very little

  • parisjok

    yeah, that is what I was thinking

  • parisjok

    so funny u are

  • parisjok

    u have me laughing

  • parisjok

    yeah, partly because she loves and adores her grandson so very much and damn happy he has finally settled his ass down with somebody who was willing to love and marry him with all of his baggage as a prince
