Meghan Markle chooses M&S for Brixton walkabout with Harry

The soon-to-be Wednesday couple visited the studios of Reprezent FM in Brixton, London and were greeted with huge cheers and well-wishes from the crowd.

Onlookers cheered as the couple arrived at the station, housed inside shipping containers in the diverse south London district, a hub for Britain's African and Caribbean communities.

Apparently princesses don't tweet - and Meghan Markle has officially deleted all of her social media accounts ahead of her upcoming wedding to England's Prince Harry.

Markle, who once ran a blog and had an active social media presence, had slowly scaled back her activity on the accounts when her relationship with Prince Harry became increasingly serious. Markle will join the foundation after she marries Harry. "You're so thoughtful and your approach is so engaging".

But Meghan Markle didn't start life as a royal.

Shane Carey, 46, founder and chief executive officer of Reprezent, who hosted the couple, said: "Since the visit was announced there's been massive excitement in the station - much more than I could have expected". Following the Prince's comments, Meghan's half-brother - Tom Markle Jr - said she had a family that "smothered her with love". I think they're [a] very good match, I'm very happy for them, Meghan and Harry.

They arrived in a chauffeur-driven vehicle at the studios of Reprezent FM, a community radio station which trains youngsters in media and employment skills.

The couple is planning to Wednesday on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
