Earlier this afternoon, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited a local radio station in Brixton, London, for their second royal engagement together.

The couple were welcomed by Reprezent Radio, a 24-hour organisation which supports people under the age of 25 through creative training in radio and broadcasting.

The station was founded in wake of the rise in knife crime in South London and is designed to help teenagers gain skills ahead of employment.

And it has proven to be a huge success with over 3,000 people currently on the waiting list to join the company at POP Brixton.

Bustling crowds began to gather hours ahead of the royal couple’s visit with many clasping signs which read: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Brixton loves you”.

And royal fans were certainly not disappointed, as the royal duo arrived at 3pm to a flurry of excited screams.

Just six weeks after their engagement, the couple have been quick to embrace charity work and on arrival they met with CEO of the radio station, Shane Carey.

For the momentous occasion, Meghan recycled one of her go-to coats by Canadian label Smythe.

She also demonstrated her desire to test out British brands, as she donned a knit by Marks and Spencer (it’s not sold out yet). The 36-year-old teamed the look with a pair of tailored wide-leg Burberry trousers and a scarf by Jigsaw – two more British brands, FYI.

The look came to an approximate total of £1,160 and it’s safe to say, Markle has the whole royal look down to a T.

But it was the royal-to-be’s hair that got everyone talking. Meghan did something the Duchess of Cambridge never has and ditched her hair curlers, fastening her locks in an untamed, messy bun. Which, no doubt, took hours to make look so effortless.

While some fans were thrilled to see the former actress looking more ‘relatable’, others weren’t as thrilled with the haphazard ‘do.

There’s no denying the fact that her makeshift bun and down-to-earth aesthetic is intentional with the aim to break down the conventional barriers between the Royal Family and the public.
