Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to visit Wales next week for celebration of country's culture

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to visit Wales next week as part of a trip to celebrate the country’s culture.

Their first stop next Thursday 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 were met by adoring crowds as they visited a radio station in Brixton, south London.

Ms Markle praised the presenter, adding: “I can see why your show is so popular. You’re so thoughtful and your approach is so engaging.” 

The bride-to-be then made everyone laugh when she added: “I must tune in.”

The radio station’s work programme, which was set up 10 years ago in a response to knife crime, trains hundreds of young people every year in media and employment skills.
