Meghan Markle and Prince Harry touch down in Northern Ireland in surprise visit
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have touched down in Northern Ireland for the first time.
The couple, who are due to wed on May 19, landed in Northern Ireland today and will be embarking on a day long tour of Belfast and Lisburn, in similar fashion to Kate Middleton and Prince Wililam who visited Belfast together before their 2011 wedding. Details of the couple's trip were kept under wraps until this morning.
Meghan opted for a high waisted olive green midi skirt, a white round neck jumper by Victoria Beckham and a cream Mackage wrap coat. She finished off her chic workwear inspired look with a pair of velvet Manolo Blahnik pumps and a leather bag by Charlotte Elizabeth, as she was flanked by her fiancé as they landed this morning, getting straight to business. First on the agenda was a visit to the Eikon Exhibition Centre in Lisburn, where they attended an event to mark the second year of youth-led peace-building initiative Amazing the Space.
Next up is a trip to The Crown Liquor Saloon in Belfast where they will meet lounge staff, and local comedians and musicians. later in the day, they'll take in a tour of the Titanic Belfast exhibition, which is one of Northern Ireland's most prominent - and lucrative - tourist attractions.
Kensington Palace said of the trip: "Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle are visiting Belfast today for their first official joint visit to Northern Ireland.
"Throughout the day, Prince Harry and Ms Markle will have the opportunity to meet members of the public, to learn how young people are shaping the future of Northern Ireland, and to visit some of the city's most loved sites."
