Valentine’s Day is here, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry visited Edinburgh just before the all-important day which would be their very own V-day. It was their first official joint visit to Scotland, and they went to the Edinburgh Castle. On her way, Meghan saw a Shetland pony for the first time. This pony is a mascot of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, and she stopped to pet it.

ABC News reports that she also participated in some humanitarian work with a section of the locals. It involved going to a unique café that hands out food and hot drinks to people who do not have any home and also employs those who used to be homeless.

Her humanitarian work

Prince Harry’s would-be bride Meghan Markle hails from California is a Hollywood actress and star of the TV drama “Suits.” She has been involved in a number of activities related to the wellbeing of the people in the UK. One of these was to meet and sympathize with the victims of a fire tragedy last year long before she came into Harry’s life. It was the fire in Grenfell Tower that took 71 lives.

Her visit to Edinburgh just before Valentine’s Day was probably to get an opportunity to mingle with the people and get a feel of their pulse.

She appears to be following in the footsteps of Prince Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana. Incidentally, Meghan was a humanitarian advocate before she got engaged to Harry, and will probably join one of the Royal Foundations after her marriage.

Officials of Kensington Palace have informed that the marriage is scheduled for May 19th at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

She is different

Members of the Royal family are not supposed to embrace members of the public but, Meghan Markle is apparently not one to be tied down by such traditions. Daily Mail UK reports that while in Edinburgh before Valentine’s Day, she shared an 'emotional' hug with a charity worker during a visit to a Scottish charity for the homeless.

The woman was the co-founder of the charity, and she recalled a speech Meghan had given in 2015 in a UN Women conference. Her subject was the empowerment of women.

In Edinburgh, she and Prince Harry met a nine-year-old Shetland pony. The locals had braved the severe climatic conditions and gathered outside Edinburgh Castle to greet the couple.

The young fans also showered them with gifts. It was evident that Meghan had won over the people. After her engagement, she had embarked on a mission to get acceptance of the Royal family and their subjects, and she is progressing towards her goal.
