It's a Royal Visit!

We were truly honoured The Queen and Duchess of Sussex attended their first formal engagement together in Chester on the 14th June.

Her Majesty and newly married Megan officially opened Chester's Storyhouse Theatre followed by a luncheon at The Town Hall.

Thousands gathered in the city and were already waiting at the venues hours before the royal pair arrived, with stalls set up on the streets selling flags and souvenirs.

The Queen, wearing green in honour of Grenfell tower tragedy held a minutes silence along with the thousands of crowds at 11am.

It was a joyous afternoon in Chester for those who had taken to the streets with the hope of seeing the Queen and her granddaughter-in-law. Just before the royal party left the Storyhouse, the sun broke through the clouds much to the delight of the waiting crowds.

There were huge cheers as the Queen took to one side of the crowd and the Duchess to the other. 

Meghan seemed like a natural in her new royal role and looked genuinely happy as she stopped to chat and shake hands with those assembled; many of them hadn't expected she would have time to speak to them and were visibly moved. 

A truly a day to remember in Chester - well done Storyhouse!
