Prince Harry, Meghan Markle arrive in Nottingham for first public event


Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive at Nottingham Station in Nottingham England ahead of their first official engagement together Friday Dec. 1, 2017. The pair will also go to Nottingham Academy.

Although there's no official rule that royals can't touch each other in public when they're working, most family members have kept it very professional, which is why we hardly ever see Prince William and Catherine hold hands when they're on duty.

The 81-year-old is well-known for handing bags of Haribo candies to Harry, and first presented his father, the Prince of Wales, with two bags - the other for brother William - 20 years ago.

The television presenter swiftly passed on her congratulations to Meghan, who announced her and Harry were taking their romance to the next step and they will be tying the knot in 2018 earlier this week, and Meghan was thankful for the well wishes.

It's been an exceptionally busy week for the happy couple following their engagement announcement on Monday.

While at Nottingham Contemporary, the couple spoke to people who work with the Terrence Higgins Trust, which provides support to people living with HIV and AIDS in Nottingham and encourages people to get tested.

Alison said: 'He touched me, he curve balled me!' as Ruth encouraged her to chase Meghan Markle next. Though they spent plenty of time saying hello to fans side-by-side, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, eventually parted ways to chat with bystanders individually.
