In the months since it was revealed she was engaged to one of the world's most eligible bachelors, Meghan Markle has embarked on a charm offensive.
Markle and fiance Prince Harry have together made their way to Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and a number of other locations since announcing their engagement in November.
"The crowds that have turned out ... have given Ms Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm and a real sense of fun," Kensington Palace said in a statement ahead of the couple's May 19 wedding.
The former US actress has also taken part in a number of royal engagements ahead of her official entry into the family.
Markle made an appearance alongside Harry and his brother William and wife Kate, the "Fab Four" - as they were dubbed by the British press - appearing on stage together to take part in the Royal Foundation forum showcasing the projects of the royals' main charity.
She also rose early to stand by Harry's side at an emotional Anzac Day dawn service in April, before paying tribute to fallen Australian and New Zealand soldiers at Westminster Abbey.
