The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Bristol today to have the opportunity to meet members of the public, learn more about the city’s rich cultural history and visit organisations supporting communities most in need.
Their first visit was to Bristol Old Vic.
Built in 1766 as a place where the people of Bristol could come together, BRISTOL OLD VIC is the oldest continuously working theatre in the English-speaking world.
The Duke and Duchess toured the recently renovated facility, finding out more about the theatre’s unique history and links to the local community.
Their Royal Highnesses also dropped in on a workshop attended by local school children, which is part of Bristol Old Vic’s outreach programme.
Their next visit of the day was to Empire Fighting Chance, which aims to fight the impact of deprivation on young people’s lives through boxing.
The charity supports children aged 8 to 21 who are failing at school and in danger of drifting into a life of unemployment or even crime, and helps them turn their lives around.
EMPIRE FIGHTING CHANCE also works with around 250-300 children per week and runs programmes which help instil discipline, self control, and respect, whilst building self-confidence, life skills, and improving both physical and mental health and fitness.
The final visit of the day for Their Royal Highnesses was to charity ONE25, which helps Bristol’s sex workers, many of whom are also addicted to drugs or alcohol.
Meghan decided to write messages of support for the women on bananas which are put in food bags for them.
Despite the freezing cold and snow, the royal couple looked wonderful.
HRH, Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex paired grey trousers with a navy jumper and classic coat as he accompanied his wife on the walkabout.
Meanwhile, HRH, Meghan the Duchess of Sussex was dressed in a beautiful Unicorn pattern printed silk-chiffon midi dress by Oscar de la Renta, a swing coat by William Vintage, the ’Marina’ Green Suede boots by Sarah Flint, the same Ralph Lauren handbag that she carried last year at the Christening of Prince Louis Christening, and also earrings by Pippa Small, which she previously wore last October at the wedding of Princess Eugenie.
