Everything you need to know about the royal visit to Edinburgh
In February the royal couple made their first official joint appearance at Edinburgh Castle.
Meghan Markle walked in front of the crowd wearing a patriotic Scottish tartan coat.
The most memorable moment of the visit was when Prince Harry received an over-friendly welcome from a Shetland pony. But let’s start from the beginning, as they arrived at the event, fans were looking for the opportunity to shake their hands and were very excited to see them. Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Frank Ross, greeted Harry and Meghan as they got out of the car.

Lots of people gathered around to congratulate the Prince and Princess on their engagement. Harry and Meghan got engaged in November and the wedding will take place on 19th of May since Prince Williams and Kate Middleton’s baby is expected in April 2018. The happy couple were holding hands while they were walking through the backstreets of Edinburgh. Loyal fans endured the bad weather conditions to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.
After their meet and greet, the couple ended up meeting another excited face, Pony Major Mark Wilkinson was there with mascot Cruachan IV. The cute Shetland pony was happy to see the royal couple and to show his excitement he licked Prince Harry's' hand. Next thing, the One O'Clock Gun followed. They met Sgt David Beveridge and after that, they wore ear defenders as the gun was fired. But they didn’t stop there. The happy couple then went to Social Bite, where more fans were waiting. This cafe has helped the local community by sending 100,000's of items to homeless people each year.
Harry and Ms Markle then went to the Palace of Holyroodhouse for their final public engagement and they met Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon during a reception in the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
