Chanting "Harry, Harry!" and "Meghan, Meghan", hundreds of people lined the streets of a central English city Friday to welcome Britain's Prince Harry and his American fiancee, actress Meghan Markle.

One woman proudly showed off a picture she'd managed to snap of Harry as he leaned in to shake her hand.

Markle was wearing an ankle-length navy coat, as she and her fiancé greeted fans outside the National Justice Museum.

She said: "I'm excited to really get to know more about the different communities here and smaller organisations that are working on the same causes that I've always been passionate about".

Libby Morton, a university student from Minnesota now studying in the United Kingdom, said she turned out on Friday because Americans "absolutely adore the royal family".

The new royal couple is already on the job, just days after revealing their engagement.

It comes after the so-called Meghan effect provided a boost for another British accessories company.

The couple visited a charity fair organized by the HIV/AIDS charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, marking World AIDS Day.

"On statistics, we are the worst area for a number of things, knife crime being one of them".

Not many other shared the woman's concern for Kate, who said that she would surely have help from staff who will take care of the baby.

A Strathberry spokeswoman said: "We are thrilled and honoured to see Meghan Markle carrying our Strathberry midi tote in tri-colour burgundy/navy/vanilla".

The couple will take a six-month tour of the country before getting married in May at Windsor Castle, the weekend residence of Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and the place where he was baptised.

The prince and the U.S. television star got engaged after a 16-month transatlantic romance.

In the first interview marking their engagement, the pair revealed they were set up on a "blind date" in London in July a year ago.

Royal Life magazine editor Allan Bryce said: "It was obvious she (Megan) would hit the ground running". The prince has long championed AIDS charities, following in the footsteps of his late mother, Princess Diana.

Prince Harry's betrothed was featured on a Nickelodeon news program in 1993 (Nick News fans where you at) for writing a letter to Procter & Gamble regarding the language of their ad for Ivory dish soap. The American plans to become a British citizen.

She will also become the fourth patron of the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
