LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle are continuing their pre-wedding tour of Britain with a trip to Scotland.
Hundreds of well-wishers greeted the couple Tuesday in a cold and windy Edinburgh, including one besotted man who implored Markle to choose him instead of the prince.
It was the couple’s fourth official engagement together as Harry introduces Markle to various parts of Britain.
The visit began with a stop at Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland’s most famous landmarks.
Shetland pony Cruachan IV, the regimental mascot, greeted the couple and even attempted to nibble the prince’s hand as he pet it.
The fashionable Markle wore a tartan coat by Burberry to honor the plaid for which Scotland is known.
They plan to meet members of the public and with various organizations involved in community work such as social enterprise Social Bite which helps alleviate homelessness.
According to a Kensington Palace statement, “Today was Ms. Meghan Markle’s first visit to Scotland, and she is very much looking forward to returning many times again in the future.”
