CHICHESTER, England – The United Kingdom’s Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, visited on Wednesday the English county that gives them their royal title for the first time since they tied the knot.
Harry, the youngest son of Prince Charles, and Markle arrived to the southern city of Chichester in West Sussex on Wednesday morning, where they were greeted by hordes of well-wishes, among them schoolchildren who waved Union Flags for the royal occasion.
During their visit, they got the chance to see the American Declaration of Independence up close, as well as visit the engineering and design department of the city’s university, where they joined students participating in an animation workshop, Kensington Palace said.
“Thank you West Sussex for the incredible welcome for The Duke and Duchess this morning!” tweeted the palace. “Next stop: East Sussex.”
The young royals were given the official titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by Queen Elizabeth II, Harry’s grandmother, after they got married on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
Harry is sixth in line to the British throne after Prince Charles, his brother Prince William and his children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
