Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally arrived for their official engagement in Cardiff today to learn more about the country's culture and support local projects using sport to engage young people.

The royal couple - who arrived an hour later than scheduled because of train delays at Paddington (typical) - will take a tour of Cardiff Castle upon their arrival, during which they will watch performances from musicians and poets, and meet with leading sportsmen and women.

The pair plan to stop by Star Hub, a community and leisure centre in the Tremorfa area of the city, to see how sport is being used to engage young people and aid social development.

This also includes a visit of StreetGames, a delivery partner of Sport Wales and the Welsh Government, and an organisation with which Harry has previously worked, to see how the project is making sport more accessible to all young people.

Markle wore a black Stella McCartney coat, trousers by the Welsh fashion house, Hiut Denim and a DeMellier 'Mini Venice' bag.

The newly-engaged pair will then speak with young women who are taking part in the UsGirls project, a charity set up to increase and sustain young women's participation physical activity, and break down barriers which have prevented many young women from following a career in sport.

Last week, Harry and Markle visited Brixton's Reprezent 107.3FM, a youth radio station which trains hundreds of young people every year in media and employment skills.

On arrival at the venue, the pair were greeted with well wishers shouting 'I love you Meghan', with Markle appearing visible moved by the warm welcome.

After their tour of the radio station, the Suits star and royal stopped to speak to members of the crowd, with Markle accepting flowers from one well-wisher, and shaking hands with others.
