“The Queen looks very happy with Markle by her side.”
“Kudos to the Queen for so kindly and graciously welcoming the Duchess.”
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, was Queen Elizabeth’s plus-one for an official engagement in Cheshire, England. The two seemed to hit it off perfectly, smiling like no one was watching — except fans of the royal family totally took notice. Yahoo readers also had their eye on the sweet love fest between Markle and her grandmother-in-law.
The outing marks the first time the duchess traveled with the queen without any other royals. By the look of their giddy smiles it was a successful outing — all hail Meghan! Fans are getting major Thelma and Louise vibes, and we don’t blame them.
Yahoo commenters are feeling the love: “Meghan is a breath of fresh air for the royals,” wrote one reader. Another chimed in, “Why can’t our White House be like this?”
Other commenters aren’t buying the best-friend hype: “The wedding is over — I thought we were done with this?”
While Prince Harry and Markle’s nuptials may be a thing of the past (the two got married on May 19) the public is still watching their every move.
Seeing the queen smile from ear to ear while traveling with Markle isn’t lost on social media. Twitter has been buzzing and putting them in the BFF zone: “We tried to tell you! We told you! The Queen's favorite is Meghan.”
