Harry and Meghan receive rapturous welcome at first public engagement

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to visit Nottingham in first official engagement together

On Tuesday, the couple's spokesman said Ms Markle would not be continuing her work on gender with the United Nations or with other organisations and instead would start new charity work as a full-time royal.

"It is such an honour to see the royals", Ms Nurzhubalina said.

"I cried - she's wonderful, and it's fantastic", Hardman said.

Just as Lady Diana did in 1981 and Kate Middleton in 2011, Meghan Markle made her first official engagement with Prince Harry by her side.

The couple will take a six-month tour of the country before getting married in May at Windsor Castle, the weekend residence of Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and the place where he was baptised.

Prince Harry and his American fiancée Meghan Markle arrived in the English city of Nottingham Friday morning to visit a charity fair marking World AIDS Day.

Holly Burdett, who is originally from West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, but now lives in Sydney, Australia, returned home on the "gamble" that the couple would announce their engagement while she was there. She's always been close to Harry, so I assume she'd want to take part and have a time similar to her wedding, partying till the small hours, ' she wrote.

They then moved along the seemingly endless line of well-wishers.

On the Nottingham visit, Ms Markle wrapped up against the cold in the double-breasted, cashmere wool blend Elodie coat, with classic epaulettes and buttoned cuff.

Camila Cabello announces self-titled debut album will be released in January
Fans can get two new songs " Never Be The Same " and " Real Friends ", with a preorder, which will be available December 7. Previously, Camila Cabello announced that her debut solo album would be called 'The Hurting.

"Oh, they would have been thick as thieves, without question", Harry said of how he thinks his mother would have thought of Meghan.

With no private secretary yet, she had to hold the bouquet and her handbag in the same hand but carried on greeting well-wishers.

She will also become the fourth patron of the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The former actress soon left her fiance's side and walked to the other side of the road to greet hundreds of fans who were crowded behind crash barriers.

She brushed her long hair from her face and smiled broadly as she shook hand after hand before rejoining the prince a little later.

Markle discussed her own royal ambitions earlier this week.

Braving the chilly weather without gloves during a walkabout in Nottingham, Ms Markle's sparkling diamond engagement ring, designed by Harry, was on show.

They said: "Ms Markle can not wait to meet numerous young people Prince Harry has told her so much about".
