The Duchess got more into her stride as the occasion went on. Alhough Meghan may have been overwhelmingly anxious, the way she seemed to communicate with the Queen means she had thoroughly prepared for this royal outing.

The Queen's style of smile and her clenched fists suggest she's literally chuckling in delight. Meghan's pose is a bit more reserved, with her legs crossed at the ankle.

However, Meghan's head is lowered and her smile is wide, what means that the Duchess is clearly sharing the joke with the Queen.

It seems that the bond between Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth is one that's only about to grow stronger by the looks of it! Good for both Meghan and Her Majesty!
