Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially made their first public appearance of 2018.
The couple bundled up for the appearance on January 9 at the Reprezent 107.3FM in Brixton and learned about how the station is appealing to young people while also teaching them more about music, radio and broadcast media.
“The Reprezent training programme was established in 2008 in response to an alarming rise in knife crime, to help young people develop and socialise through radio,” Kensington Palace explained on Twitter. “Training hundreds of young people every year to develop useful skills and help progress to further education and employment opportunities, over 4,000 young people have been through the Reprezent programme.”
The newly engaged couple were met by the screams of fans as they arrived in Brixton.
Once in the station, the couple toured the studios and met with several producers, hosts and young people who are currently enrolled in the program.
This appearance was the first for the couple who recently celebrated Christmas with the Royal Family at the Queen’s estate in Norfolk. After the holidays, Harry dished about the family’s first Christmas together in an interview with BBC Radio 4’s show “Today.”
“It was fantastic! She really enjoyed it!” he said on Dec. 26. “The family loved having her there. I think together, we had an amazing time.”
Harry continued, “She’s done an absolutely amazing job. She’s getting in there, and it’s the family that I suppose she’s never had.”
The couple announced their engagement in November and are planning their wedding for May 19, 2018.
Harry also said that he is looking forward to 2018 for more than his upcoming “I do’s.”
“We’re looking forward to the new year and 2018, because I’m determined that [for] myself and the younger generation, the pendulum is going to swing in 2018, and it’s going to be a fantastic year,” he said.
Though, the wedding planning hasn’t exactly been easy. Earlier this year, it was reported that Markle and Harry were denied their dream wedding reception location at Frogmore House due to their large guest list.
“They would have loved Frogmore for the party, particularly Meghan, but they have been told St George’s Hall is far more practical,” a source told the Express.
