For her latest trip this Spring, a surprise visit to Northern Ireland that included a front-row appearance at a youth-led peace initiative, Meghan Markle stepped out with fiancé Prince Harry and her usual infectious smile.

The couple, who are due to marry in eight weeks, are visiting several locations during their first joint visit to the area.

The prince and Ms Markle began their day-long visit at the former Long Kesh/Maze prison site outside Lisburn where around 2,500 young people from both sides of the Irish border gathered for the "Amazing the Space" celebration, a peace-building event pioneered by Derry Presbyterian minister David Latimer.

Funded by the Northern Ireland Executive Office and organised by Co-operation Ireland, Amazing the Space was launched by 33-year-old Harry in September 2017 and empowers young people across Northern Ireland to become ambassadors for peace within their communities.

Afterwards, the couple visited one of Belfast's most historic buildings: The Crown Liquor Saloon.

Prince Harry also mentioned in the couple's engagement interview that they were hoping to start a family post-wedding.

Inside, Meghan and Harry learned about the history of the old saloon from National Trust employees, spoke to bar staff and learned how to pull the ideal pint of Guinness before enjoying an Irish stew for lunch. "It's very sweet", said Meghan.

The letter read: "I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council".

Designed by Charlotte Elizabeth, who has her own leather brand, this small leather tote bag is actually called Bloomsbury, and comes in at just £175. The future bride looked particularly striking in a nude-toned coat by Mackage, a white knit by Victoria Beckham, a green pencil skirt and suede Jimmy Choo heels.

The Royal Collection Trust has unveiled the official range of commemorative china celebrating Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming wedding.

Prince Harry and Markle's wedding is less than two months away.

"Meghan Markle: An American Princess will provide viewers with the definitive inside story of the most talked-about wedding of the year, packed with exclusive insights into how Meghan and the world's most famous family will change each other's lives", commented Daniela Neumann, the managing director of Spun Gold TV, which is producing the special with Znak & Co.
