The Duchess of Sussex has been quick to learn the ropes and announced her first solo project just five months after her wedding to Prince Harry.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex braved the snow to meet fans during a royal engagement in Bristol on Friday.

One25 in the St Paul's area of the city helps sex workers break free from a life of violence, poverty and addiction on the streets.

Meghan replied: "It's good to have a balance of both".

She also kept her make up light, had her hair down and wore Pippa Small Herkimer Diamond Studs, which cost £495.

Her boots, by Sarah Flint, were the ultimate accessory to bring some colour to the blustery day.

Fans had wondered whether she might ever return to the show - even for a cameo in the final season - but on Tuesday "Suits" creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh told a Television Critics Association meeting in California that this was highly unlikely.

Kensington Palace also shared a video of Meghan in the One25 kitchen declaring, "I am in charge of banana messaging", while writing down messages such as "You are special", and "You are fearless", on the outside of the bananas.

"It is fantastic that they chose to come here", she said.

Prince Harry and Meghan were later taken on a guided tour of the revamped theatre, also dropping in on a workshop attended by local school children, which is part of the theatre's outreach programme.

Kate further shared a sweet moment with a young girl in the crowd, who couldn't help but feel the royal's long brown locks.

The William Vintage black coat fell below the knee and buttoned over Meghan's bump, keeping the mother-to-be warm on one of the coldest days of the year.

McPhee, who narrowly lost "America Idol" in 2006 and now stars as Jenna Hutcherson in the West End production "Waitress", sent the internet into a frenzy when she posted the throwback photo of her old childhood friend.
