Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Make Their First Royal Appearance in Nottingham
On Friday, the couple began their visit to the English city at the town center. Dressed in a black turtleneck, a beige Joseph skirt ($537; joseph-fashion.com), a long navy blue coat from Mackage, which has already sold out, and a burgundy Strathberry tote ($675; saks.com). The royal-to-be looked positively radiant as she waded into the assembled crowd of enthusiastic locals.
One bold fan even asked Harry what it was like to be with someone like Meghan “as a ginger.”
“It’s great isn’t it … unbelievable!” the red-headed royal joked in response.
From there, the lovebirds made their way to Nottingham Contemporary, an art center hosting a celebration for World AIDS Day, sponsored by the Terrence Higgins Trust. Next on the schedule is a meeting with staff and mentors at Nottingham Academy, where they will attend a discussion about the Full Effect program, an effort founded by Harry aimed at preventing young people from turning to violence and crime. There will even be a "hip hop opera" performance,
Harry has spent considerable time in Nottingham in recent years, and was reportedly very excited to introduce his new fiancée to a place that's become near and dear to his heart. During a Buckingham Palace briefing on Tuesday, spokesman Jason Knauf said Harry was “looking forward to introducing Ms. Markle to a community that has become very special to him."
It looks like Meghan's already got the hang of it! We're looking forward to plenty more appearances from this dynamic duo.
