Meghan Markle Charms Crowds on First Joint Royal Engagement

Prince Harry and his bride-to-be Meghan Markle have arrived in Nottingham for their first official joint visit.

Huge crowds descended on the city – as did the world’s press – to catch a glimpse of the happy couple, who announced their engagement earlier in the week. And they weren’t disappointed.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, smiled and waved to cheering members of the public as they alighted their car, taking the time to shake hands and speak to a few lucky locals, before heading to the National Justice Museum. Meghan looked beautiful for her first public engagement with Harry, dressed in a navy blue winter coat by Mackage and black heeled boots, her striking trilogy diamond engagement ring adorning her hand.

The couple spent around 25 minutes meeting the crowds in Nottingham, with Meghan charming members of the public as she introduced herself with a cheery “Hi, I’m Meghan.” “I’m so happy,” she said at one point. “It’s just such a thrill to be here.”
