The date of May 19 has been set for the royal wedding, after the couple's engagement was announced in November a year ago.

"I can vouch for that", Prince Harry said.

The trip was Meghan's first visit to Scotland, where she was met upon arrival by an adorable Shetland pony, also dressed in a tartan coat.

The fire that broke out at Grenfell Tower last June affected everyone in the U.K. And perhaps because of its close proximity to Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace, the Royal Family felt it keenly as well.

Inside the castle, Harry and Meghan again linked hands to stroll onto the ramparts for the firing of the One O'Clock Gun, a 157-year-old tradition that marks time for ships. Thankfully, Meghan was dressed for the occasion.

She is also being taught everything from table manners to how to socialise with foreign diplomat as a senior royal.

Meghan opted for pants for this visit, wearing a pair of Veronica Beard slacks to keep her warm.

Markle's famous friends are also expected to attend the wedding, including tennis superstar Serena Williams, "Suits" co-star Patrick J. Adams, former co-star Millie Mackintosh from "Made in Chelsea", as well as her stylist Jessica Mulroney.

Accessorizing, Markle added a hunter green crossbody bag courtesy of Scottish label Strathbury, which highlighted the similar shade of green in her jacket.

As social media users quickly pointed out, Cruachan perhaps thought the prince was holding out a treat for him. The beloved mascot was wearing a coat very similar to the one Meghan was wearing and even got a bit playful with Harry at one stage.

The organisation runs social enterprise cafés throughout Scotland and distributes 100,000 items of food and hot drinks to the homeless each year.

In her and Prince Harry's official engagement photos, Markle's Ralph & Russo sheer dress was considered a bold choice by some. It's all about celebrating and recognising the achievements of Scotland's younger community members and about providing them with new and exciting opportunities.
