Govt plans to extend pub hours for royal wedding

Royal fiancee Meghan Markle shuts down social media accounts

The soon-to-be Wednesday couple visited the studios of Reprezent FM in Brixton, London and were greeted with huge cheers and well-wishes from the crowd.

The radio station, housed inside shipping containers in the south London district, is supported by the charitable foundation of Prince Harry, his brother Prince William and his wife, Duchess Kate of Cambridge.

Markle, who once ran a blog and had an active social media presence, had slowly scaled back her activity on the accounts when her relationship with Prince Harry became increasingly serious.

On an impromptu walkabout later, she was showered with flowers and cards as she shook hands with the crowd, expertly steered by Harry. "I can see why your show is so popular".

'It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated.
