LONDON — Prince Harry and his fiancee, Meghan Markle, carried out their first official visit to Wales on Thursday amid speculation about who will score an invitation to their upcoming nuptials — and who won’t.
Arriving about an hour late because their train was delayed, Harry and Markle began their day in Cardiff, the Welsh capital, with a walkabout, greeting members of the public who had gathered outside Cardiff Castle. News commentators described Markle as “a natural” with the crowds. And “Meghan mania” was how they described the response to her.
Prince Harry — a.k.a. His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales — and his American bride-to-be experienced a taste of Welsh culture during their tour. They sampled Welsh cakes, listened to a Welsh boys choir and were presented with Welsh love spoons.
