As a royal family aside, Ed Sheeran reportedly had his face cut by Princess Beatrice at a party past year after she mock-knighted James Blunt with a sword and Ed got in the way.

The couple joined the district gunner at the Royal Artillery for the firing of the one o'clock canon before departing for the Social Bites café. From wearing a messy hair bun inside the Cardiff Castle, to showing her legs sans pantyhose during her and Prince Harry's engagement announcement- she hasn't compromised her own, more relaxed, fashion style in the name of tradition.

The pair happily stopped and interacted with the thousands of people who lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the newest royal family member.

And the in-demand fashionista is rumoured to be helping select Meghan's all-important wedding dress. She's also not the first royal female to wear the iconic pattern in Scotland.

Markle accessorized with a purse from the brand Strathberry, an Edinburgh-based luxury label, according to People. Harry gave Cruachan IV an affectionate pat while Meghan kept a slightly more cautious distance away.

They met with a Shetland pony, who was also wearing a tartan coat. 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, as well as employing staff who have experienced homelessness themselves.

They will be the latest in a string of high-profile visitors to Social Bite premises.

The last public part of the couple's day saw them visit the Great Gallery of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where they were serenaded with an accoustic version of Ed Sheeran's flawless by a group of 50 young people.

It was the couple's fourth official engagement together as Harry introduces Markle to various parts of Britain.

And the reception provided an opportunity for them to discuss their aspirations for the year and the activities that they have been involved in so far.
