    Meghan Markle and the Queen made news yesterday as they took part in their first outing as a pair.

    To say that the adorable photographs of them living their best lives together went viral would be a huge understatement.


    While Queen Elizabeth has always made a noticeable effort with Meghan, making a lot of exceptions to welcome her into the royal fold, it was her actions this week that spoke the loudest on her admiration of Meghan.

    Queen Liz invited Meghan to accompany her on her personal train – the royal train – to Cheshire, an honour usually reserved for senior titles. Even Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton are yet to receive an invite.

    And never missing a detail, the Queen even gave Meghan a touching gift to commemorate the event – a pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings that Meghan wore on the tour.


    The pearl and diamond earrings matched her grandmother-in-law’s, with The Sun reporting that the jewels were a gift from the Queen herself.

    It is unknown whether the earrings were bought especially for the occasion or whether they were from the Queen’s personal collection, but judging by Princess Diana’s frequent wearing of similar jewels, we would guess the latter.s

    Meghan teamed her new jewels with a light beige pencil dress with a caped top by Givenchy, whilst the Queen opted for a lime green Stewart Parvin suit and a Rachel Trevor Morgan hat.

    An invite on the royal train AND pearl earrings? It looks like the Queen is a fan of Meghan.
