Crowds of curious and excited onlookers packed the streets of Nottingham on Friday, including avid fan Irene Hardman.

Prince Harry (left) and Meghan Markle (right) made their first royal appearance together as an engaged couple.

As thousands of fans tuned in again this morning to see the couple arrive for their first day of duties in Nottingham, numerous world's designers will have also been on standby again, just in case the royal-to-be has been shopping, incognito, in one of their stores.

Their visit to Nottingham comes four days after Harry and Markle announced their engagement. "The Queen has always put duty first and Prince Charles and Prince William have learnt from her".

Markle said she can't wait to meet the young people Prince Harry has spoken about.

"We're so happy for them both", Mary Cooper, 60, said. The couple was there to raise HIV/AIDS and youth crime awareness.

Markle was wearing an ankle-length navy coat, as she and her fiancé greeted fans outside the National Justice Museum.

The couple were visiting a charity fair to mark World Aids Day, something particularly symbolic for Harry whose late mother Princess Diana is credited with playing a leading role in breaking down the stigma that was attached to the disease.

Their wedding is scheduled to take place next May at Windsor Castle.

This is the couples first public event since the announcement of their engagement on Monday.

She was also keen to travel around Britain to get to know the country that will become her home as she intends to become a British citizen, the spokesman added.
