Harry and Meghan to celebrate Welsh culture on Cardiff visit


Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle will celebrate Wales's heritage during a visit to its capital.

Their first stop next Wednesday will be at Cardiff's historic castle, which is to host a Welsh Culture Festival.

During a tour of the 2,000-year-old building, the couple will hear performances from musicians and poets, meet leading athletes and learn how organisations are promoting the Welsh language and cultural identity.

The Prince and Ms Markle will then visit Star Hub, a community and leisure centre in the north-east of the city, to see how sport is being used to engage young people.

They will also see how StreetGames, an organisation with which Harry has previously worked, is helping bring sport to young people of all social backgrounds.

Earlier this week, the couple turned heads during a visit to the heart of London's Caribbean community.

Crowds gathered outside the studios of not-for-profit broadcaster Reprezent FM in Brixton, south London, and cheered and screamed when they were acknowledged by the hand-holding pair.
