Harry and Meghan laugh in their first TV interview this week after announcing their engagement

Less than a week after her engagement to Britain's Prince Harry was announced, the American actor Meghan Markle got her first taste of the "walkabout" on Friday, in near-freezing temperatures in the English city of Nottingham.

The mum continues to say Harry and Meghan's decision create a dilemma for William and Kate, who will both want to enjoy the special the day but will either be anxious about their newborn.

"It is such an honour to see the royals", Ms Nurzhubalina said.

On Tuesday, the couple's spokesman said Ms Markle would not be continuing her work on gender with the United Nations or with other organisations and instead would start new charity work as a full-time royal.

Harry has spent a significant amount of time in the city both publicly and privately since he first met with young people there in 2013 when he was exploring issues around youth violence.

An eager public watched on, some waiting hours to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and his American fiancée, reports CBS News correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti.

The couple visited a charity fair organized by the HIV/AIDS charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, marking World AIDS Day.

When agreeing to marry Prince Harry, Meghan also agreed to give up her career as an actress in exchange for a life making official royal visits to charities and being a spokesperson for important causes.

Little Foot skeleton revealed
The man behind the epic discovery, Professor Ron Clarke , said Little Foot was nicknamed by Professor Phillip Tobias . The first fragments of bones belonging to Little Foot were found in 1994 followed by more in 1997.

The couple will take a six-month tour of the country before getting married in May at Windsor Castle, the weekend residence of Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and the place where he was baptised.

She joked: "I always thought I'd marry Harry but you can't win them all".

Today, she paired the dark blue coat with black suede boots and carried a large burgundy handbag - something the Duchess of Cambridge rarely does.

With no private secretary yet, she had to hold the flowers and her handbag in the same hand but carried on greeting well-wishers.

An exact day is yet to be announced, and as Kate is due anytime in April, an early May wedding could potentially mean she would have given birth not long before.

The former actress soon left her fiance's side and walked to the other side of the road to greet hundreds of fans who were crowded behind crash barriers.

They also were tactile with the crowds stopping to touch people on the arm and Ms Markle even rubbed someone's wrist - as if to warm them up on the cold day - as she shook their hand.

With Markle by his side, Harry says he is now more committed than ever.
