Hundreds of cheering well-wishers braved the cold to catch a glimpse of newly-engaged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle today as they visited a youth radio station.

The couple stopped to chat to people before they entered the Reprezent FM studio in Brixton, London.

Former Suits actress Meghan looked typically chic wearing a black Marks and Spencer jumper, black Burberry trousers and a cream Smythe coat.

According to The Telegraph, they met with Reprezent FM presenter Glory, who gave them headphones so they could listen to the music.

Meghan was clearly a fan of Glory's work, saying: "I can see why your show is so popular. You're so thoughtful and your approach is so engaging."

Before they left, Meghan added: "I must tune in."

The Reprezent programme was set up ten years ago o help young people develop skills such as audio and radio production, confidence building and work experience.

It was a response to an increased rate in knife crime and so far more than 4,000 people have been through the Reprezent programme, with over 3,000 still on the waiting list.
