Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have now made their first royal appearance as an engaged couple.
The bride and groom-to-be visited the city of Nottingham on Friday 1st December for Meghan’s very first official appearance as a soon-to-be member of the royal family.
Arriving in the city the pair were greeted by huge crowds of locals and onlookers all desperate to get a glimpse of the happy couple – and maybe even a handshake.
Meghan wrapped up warm against the cold in a stunning, deep purple coat from designer Mackage, and black ankle boots. And the pair looked as in love as ever, with Meghan comfortingly placing a hand on her fiance’s back at regular intervals.
And unlike the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the pair often held hands as they walked along, in a break from royal protocol.
And it seems that the couple will soon be getting used to these visits together, as it’s been rumoured that they are set to embark on a huge honeymoon tour following their wedding in May 2018.
Before they marry, it’s been confirmed that they’ll undertake a six-month long tour of the UK, in order to allow Meghan to get to know her adopted country better.
But soon after they become husband and wife, Harry and Meghan may stretch further afield, and will reportedly be visiting countries around the world that are important to both of them.
One of their most pivotal stops will be back to Meghan’s recent home-country of Canada. While the former actress is actually from America, she’s lived in Toronto for the past seven years while filming her TV series Suits.
The country is also a part of the Commonwealth, meaning it will be an important stop on the couple’s tour, as Meghan had previously spoken about how excited she was to travel to the Commonwealth as part of her new royal duties.
It has been said that the pair might then visit Meghan’s home of the US, in order to honour injured veterans – a cause close to Harry’s heart.
The couple are also thought to be planning a visit to Lesotho in Africa, in a poignant nod to the work of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.
Reportedly, Harry is keen to introduce his new fiancée to the work of his charity Sentebale, set up in memory of the Princess.
And finally, the couple will also reportedly visit Sydney, where Harry will host his fourth Invictus Games. And the trip is sure to be a special one for the newlyweds, who made their first public appearance as a couple at the recent games which were held in Toronto.
We can’t wait to see the pictures!
