Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just made their first royal outing as a couple

And they seem to be VERY popular.

With news breaking just this week that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, their relationship seems to be going at increasing speed, with Kensington Palace announcing that the couple are set to wed at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

With their nuptials fast-approaching and many speculating as to what we can expect from a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding, people have been wondering when the Suits actress will begin her royal duties.

While some guessed January as a starting date, the royal couple proved that there’s no time like the present, embarking on their first royal outing as a couple today.

Prince Harry and his future bride headed to Nottingham this morning, where they have reportedly been met by an overwhelming reception of well-wishes, desperate for a glimpse at the happy couple before they embark on their busy day. The couple are said to have only increased their popularity by spending as much time as they could meeting everyone.

During their royal outing, the couple are set to visit a World Aids Day charity fair, hosted by the Terrence Higgins Trust, before going on to meet the head teachers at a nearby school. The couple are then said to be going on to Nottingham Academy where they will watch a ‘hip hopera’ and meet students.

Prince Harry has a strong connection to the city, having worked on youth violence projects there previously, and according to his communication’s secretary, Jason Knauf, the 33-year-old was excited to introduce Meghan to a community that had ‘become very special to him.’

It looks like Heghan are a hit.
