She may have only been a member of The Royal Family for a few weeks, but the Duchess of Sussex has already made quite the impression on The Queen and has been invited to travel on Her Majesty’s train to Chester next week.
The Queen and Meghan will conduct a series of engagements in the city together before heading back to London in the evening.
Travelling on the royal train will be a huge honour for Meghan with very few people ever getting the opportunity to ride on the vehicle.
The train is only available to be used by The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
According to the Daily Mail’s royal correspondent, even Prince William and Prince Harry have not used the train in an official capacity before.
Regards the royal train, it cost £900,000 to run in 2016/17 and was used just 14 times in 12 months. It is only available to the Queen, Philip, Charles and Camilla – I’m not even sure that William, Kate or Harry will have been on it officially. So quite a first for #Meghan. https://t.co/iRoDnzyNhS

The Duchess of Sussex, alongside Her Majesty, will visit Chesire on the 14th of June where they will open the Storyhouse theatre, which acts as a community centre, library, and cinema. The theatre, which used to be an Odeon cinema, underwent a two and a half year refurbishment at the cost of £37m.
During the visit to the theatre, they will meet performers as well as unveil a plaque to commemorate the theatres opening.
They will visit the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre, a museum that describes itself as “putting the fun in science.” As well as visit a new bridge between Runcorn and Widnes that opened in October.
A spokesperson for the family said they would also attend a lunch held at Chester Town Hall alongside local leaders and dignitaries.
