    Meghan Markle is probably the most talked about woman in the world, from her powerful fashion influence to her transformation from Hollywood actress to full-on royal since assuming a Duchess title.

    One of the most talked about aspects of Meghan’s life however is her relationship with her grandmother-in-law, the Queen – especially in recent weeks.

    There was concern when a framed photo of Meghan and Harry, previously seen in Queen Elizabeth’s audience room, was moved, but royal experts were quick to explain that the Monarch has a tendency of moving her photographs around, assuring the public that the Queen and Meghan are big fans of each other.

    The two power women then proved their fondness for each other earlier this month, going on their first official outing as a pair.


    But it wasn’t their itinerary that went viral, but the adorable photos of the two women living their best lives, laughing and joking together throughout their tour.

    And it hasn’t stopped now that they have left Cheshire.

    Queen Elizabeth and the now Duchess of Sussex attended the Queen’s Young Leaders event at Buckingham Palace yesterday, where together, they watched Prince Harry – now Duke of Sussex – give a speech.

    ‘I guess you can say you’re stuck with me,’ Harry told the audience, prompting laughter from the two royal women, who were sitting one seat apart with space for Harry.

    ‘I, together with my wife Meghan, look forward to convening young people from around The Commonwealth to hear your ideas, work with you to build platforms for you to collaborate and form partnerships, and continue to meet with many of you as we travel around in our work on behalf of The Royal Family,’ Prince Harry continued. ‘We look forward to meeting many of you this evening — but we also hope to see you in action in your home countries someday too.’

    The laughs between Meghan and Queen Elizabeth are hardly surprising, with the monarch making a noticeable effort with the former Suits actress, making a lot of exceptions to welcome her into the fold, even inviting her to spend Christmas in Sandringham before she was officially a royal.

    We can’t wait to see their sweet friendship grow.
