Meghan Markle's the star on royal debut

Meghan Markle's the star on royal debut

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive at Nottingham Station in Nottingham England ahead of their first official engagement together Friday Dec. 1, 2017.

But, a mere four days into her engagement, Meghan Markle is already learning to do things the Windsor way.

In the central English city of Nottingham, Harry and Markle, both wearing long navy overcoats, greeted hundreds of smiling well-wishers waving British and US flags, chatting and shaking hands with onlookers who braved freezing weather to welcome them. "The visit today focuses on causes that [Harry] is particularly passionate about ― raising the awareness of HIV/AIDS and preventing youth crime".

"We love Harry, and Meghan she looks handsome doesn't she", Betty Parker, 78, told Reuters as she waited to meet the couple.

Mary Cooper, 60, who had been waiting to see the prince and his bride-to-be since before 9am, said: "I think it's absolutely wonderful that both he and his brother have found happiness". They later hit up the elegant Contemporary, which hosted the Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair.

They are also set to meet with teachers from Nottingham Academy later in the day, along with local students and those involved in the Full Effect programme.

It's been an exceptionally busy week for the happy couple following their engagement announcement on Monday.

The Queen has granted permission for the pair to Wednesday inside St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle but Meghan - a protestant who went to a catholic high school - will be both baptised and confirmed, before the big day to be ready for the religious ceremony. The American plans to become a British citizen.
