Prince Harry and Markle greeted crowds ahead of a visit to the National Justice Museum and the Nottingham Contemporary, where the Terrence Higgins Trust hosted an event to mark World AIDS Day.

"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle arrive in Nottingham for their first official visit together since announcing their engagement," Kensington Palace tweeted. "Prince Harry has been to Nottingham many times before and is delighted to be introducing the city to Ms. Markle."

Prince Harry and Markle wore coordinating outfits, with both the prince and the actress in long, navy coats and oatmeal-colored scarves. One well-wisher jokingly asked Prince Harry what it's like to be with Markle "as a ginger" with red hair.
