Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out in Cardiff on Thursday for their third royal engagement. Braving the rain, the royal couple made their way to Cardiff Castle to see examples of how national sports charity Street Games is working.

As ever, all eyes were on Meghan's outfit – who looked stylish in a black Stella McCartney coat, heeled boots and – paying a nod to Wales – a pair of black skinny jeans from Welsh designer Hiut Denim. Her brunette, hair, meanwhile, was scraped back into a stylish chignon.

Harry and Meghan delighted crowds who had been waiting since the early hours of the morning to catch a glimpse of the couple, many greeting them with Welsh flags.Click through the gallery to see all the photos from their visit...

Meghan Markle delighted a royal fan during her visit to Cardiff - breaking royal protocol by doing so. The soon-to-be-royal signed an autograph for a young girl who had queued for hours outside Cardiff Castle to get a glimpse of the couple, while her fiancé Prince Harry stood by her side. Royals are typically expected to politely decline fans requests for an autograph, due to the risk of it being forged.
