In Pictures: Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Meet The Public For First Time

Apart from one joke about Prince Harry's hair color, the first official joint engagement for the royal and his new fiancée, Meghan Markle, seems to have been a success.

The pair met the British public together for the first time during a series of visits in Nottingham. They took part in a walkabout in the city streets, posing for pictures and shaking hands.

One well-wisher had an especially personal message for the prince. Captured in footage posted by the Daily Mail's Rebecca English, a red-haired onlooker asked Harry how it felt to be in a relationship with Mark "as a ginger."

"Great, isn't it," the prince responded, barely missing a beat.

Markle and the prince are in the city to bring attention to two of the young royal's pet causes: HIV/AIDs prevention and youth crime.

They are visiting a charity fair at the Nottingham Contemporary arts center, raising money for the Terence Higgins Trust AIDs charity.

During the visit, the pair will meet with representatives from Terrence Higgins Trust Nottingham, the African Institute for Social Development and Champions for Change, all of whom work with people in Nottingham and who focus on HIV/AIDS.

The couple are also heading to Nottingham Academy school, a trip which includes meetings with staff and members from Full Effect, a programme protecting young people from involvement in crime and violence, and backed by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry since 2013.
