Shortly after 7 a.m. (ET), the pair watched a performance by the Royal Marines Scotland Band in front of Edinburg Castle and once inside, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, were treated to the firing of the One O'clock Gun.
The duo, who are to be married on May 19, then moved onto Social Bite, a business and café located in Edinburgh's New Town. The social enterprise, which has been visited by celebrities including George Clooney, distributes 100,000 items of food and hot drinks to homeless people each year. They also employ staff who have experienced homelessness themselves.
From there, they visited the Palace of Holyroodhouse – the Queen's official residence in Scotland – where they attended a reception to celebrate youth achievements, marking Scotland's Year of Young People 2018.
The initiative celebrates the achievements of young people, strengthens their voice on social issues and creates new opportunities for them. Youth representatives from various charities and organizations that work with and for young people across the country were present.
