Meghan Markle has closed all her social media accounts almost four months before her May wedding to Prince Harry.

Meghan paired her look with a Jigsaw scarf that also is now sold out.

Now, Meghan, who ended her blog, The Tig, last April, has taken another step towards revamping her public persona by shutting down her personal Instagram and Twitter accounts, on which she had previously shared photos of her travels and her dogs, Guy and Bogart. No worries, though, for royal watchers.

The couple, stepping out for their second official event since announcing their engagement in November, headed to the Brixton neighborhood of south London to meet with the volunteers and staff of Reprezent FM.

"She's of mixed race, I'm of mixed race, and it means a lot to see that", said Sandra Wiltshire, a 39-year-old care assistant who spoke to the couple as they briefly met members of the crowd.

"I must tune in", said Markle, who was wearing a coat by Smythe, Burberry pants and a sweater by high street store Marks & Spencer. "And now being boots on the ground in the United Kingdom, I'm excited to just really get to know more about the different communities here, [and learn about the] smaller organizations who are working on the same causes that I've always been passionate about under this umbrella". "It's a new chapter". Markle said, "Keep in mind I've been working on my show for seven years, so we're very, very fortunate to have that kind of longevity on a series and once we hit the 100th episode mark, I felt, 'I've ticked this box.'" The show hit its 100th episode in August. The U.S. actress and the queen's grandson are due to marry May 19 at Windsor Castle.
