The newly engaged pair visited the city of Nottingham.

Five days after unveiling they were getting married, Prince Harry and his American actress fiance Meghan Markle went on the first of what are likely to be many official royal duties. 

On Friday, the two headed to the city of Nottingham, England, beginning with the usual royal "walkabout," shaking hands and accepting flowers from the crowds that had amassed to greet them.

The couple was later set to visit the Nottingham Contemporary, which is hosting a Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair, followed by the Nottingham Academy to meet headteachers from local schools and those working for a program aimed at combating youth crime set up by the Royal Foundation, of which Markle is set to become a patron.

Prince Harry and Markle are set to wed in May at Windsor Castle, although an exact date is yet to be announced.
