Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took time out from wedding planning to make a visit to Birmingham, England on Thursday, and it's safe to say the residents of the second city gave them a warm welcome. Crowds of local schoolchildren greeted the royal couple, waving union flags in welcome, and Meghan wasted no time in crouching down to shake their hands and chat. She even went in for a full-on hug with a couple of lucky kids. The couple's whistle-stop tour of the city will include visits to youth projects including STEMettes, a social enterprise group that encourages girls to get involved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. There could be no more fitting choice for the couple on International Women's Day! Take a look at the best photos from their day now, and stay tuned for more.
