Back in April, Meghan Markle wasn't exaggerating when she said she planned to "hit the ground running" with her work as a member of the royal family following her wedding to Prince Harry.

The happy couple delayed their honeymoon to attend an engagement at Buckingham Palace for Prince Charles's birthday just days after their nuptial celebration in Windsor, and next week, the newly named Duchess of Sussex will make her first solo appearance as a royal alongside Queen Elizabeth.

On June 14, "Her Majesty The Queen accompanied by The Duchess of Sussex, will officially open the Mersey Gateway Bridge, at Catalyst Science Discovery Centre, Mersey Road, Widnes, Cheshire," reads the royal family's website. On the same trip, the pair will also attend lunch at the Chester Town Hall, and will open the Storyhouse Theatre in Chester, a fitting engagement for the former actress.

The travel day, which People says is sometimes called an "away day," marks Meghan's first official appearance without Prince Harry by her side, but something tells us the Queen will make a great traveling companion. By all accounts, she and her new granddaughter-in-law get along well, and who better to show Meghan the royal ropes than the monarch herself?

While additional solo appearances for Meghan have yet to be announced, the trip to Cheshire likely won't be the only time we see the Duchess of Sussex over the next few days. Both she and Prince Harry are expected (though not yet confirmed) to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony with the rest of the royal family on June 9 in celebration of the Trooping the Colour parade.
