The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle had her first solo appearance with Queen Elizabeth this week, and as usual she made fashion headlines – this time for a gorgeous pair of pearl and diamond stud earrings. Royal correspondents are reporting that the earrings were a gift from the Queen’s personal collection.
Buckingham Palace say Meghan #DuchessofSussex’s new pearl earrings are a gift from the Queen. (And not Birks as they’re claiming!). pic.twitter.com/fLJcIoZtGt

We can’t help but notice that the Queen wore a similar pair of earrings, with what looks like a slightly larger pearl.
Her Majesty and Her Royal Highness then visited the Mersey Gateway Bridge in Widnes. The Queen and The Duchess met architects, planners and community representatives before seeing a performance by local schoolchildren called “Bringing communities together: Halton’s river crossings over the ages.” Her Majesty unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening. The Bridge is a new six-lane toll bridge over the River Mersey between Runcorn and Widnes. #royalvisitcheshire
