Meghan Markle's first official royal engagement of 2018 REVEALED

LIFE as a member of the Royal Family is already getting started for Meghan Markle this year – as her first official engagement of 2018 has been announced.


She may be busy planning her wedding to Prince Harry in May, but the US actress is already keen to get stuck into life as a soon-to-be Duchess.

The former Suits star will join fiance Harry for a visit to a radio station in Brixton, south London on Tuesday next week.

The loved-up pair will be visiting Reprezent 107.3FM to meet presenters, volunteers and staff involved in the station’s training programme.

It was set up to get youths off the streets amid a hike in knife crime, with the programme helping more than 4,000 young people.

REVEALED: Meghan will take on her first Royal engagement of 2018 next week

The scheme helps youngsters develop and socialise by learning media and workplace skills at the radio station, and is viewed as a hotbed of emerging talent.

The visit will be Meghan’s second Royal engagement after she joined Harry on a visit to Nottingham days after they announced they were engaged.

Harry is especially interested in the radio station’s programme as it helps people with mental health issues – something that is close to his heart.

His mum Princess Diana was known as a keen advocate of raising awareness of mental health issues.

BIG HIT: Hundreds turned out for Meghan's first visit

During Meghan’s first visit hundreds of people packed Nottingham city centre to give her handshakes, high-fives and hugs.

Dozens of gifts were given to the pair to congratulate them on their engagement news, including bags of Haribo sweets for Harry and flowers for Meghan.

Meghan was most recently spotted at a church on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate, where she stayed for Christmas with the Royal Family.
