"The Queen said she thoroughly enjoyed it and it was lovely to see the history of the bridge on the videos,” Andrew Curphey of the Andrew Curphey Theatre Company, which organized the performance, told Express. “As Meghan walked away from me she turned back and said 'The children did great by the way.' They both wanted to talk and seemed interested.”

"Meghan seemed really, really calm considering it was her first official engagement with the boss!" he added.
