Below is a video of the couple arriving.
“As they went inside the castle for the celebration of Welsh culture, Prince Harry told his bride-to-be of his appreciation for Welsh singing. “You are only going to hear the best singing in Wales,” he said.
Meghan and Harry listened to a performance by Only Boys Aloud, a Welsh choir featuring boys aged 13 – 19.
The couple were also treated to a wedding cake made from Welsh cheese, with Ms Markle exclaiming: “Oh my goodness, how sweet is that”.
Both Ms Markle and Harry tasted small pieces of the mature cheddar that made up part of the five-tier cake, which she described as “really delicious”.
The second stop today was at the Starhub Community Centre, a local rec center. Jessica Walford of Wales Online posted a photo of the couple as they arrived.
The couple were at the Centre to see the work of StreetGames Network, a charity Harry has worked with previously that helps bring sports to disadvantaged young people.
The charity helps make sport accessible to all young people regardless of their income or social circumstances and has helped 40,000 disadvantaged young people reap the benefits of sport…" - Wales Online reporter Jessica Walford
Prince Harry said: “Okay, everyone give Meghan a hug.”
