We know that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married on May 19, we know the schedule of the day's events, and we know the couple are expanding their guest list in a very special way by inviting more than 2,500 people to the grounds of Windsor Castle to help celebrate the big day.

Meghan Markle greets Sophia Richards, 10, with a hug.

"I'm a huge fan of them - I'm from Canada so I had to come see them because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was just incredible", said student Brandy Davis, 20, from Toronto who is studying at a nearby university. As for other pre-wedding activities, a source also told ET on Monday that Meghan's friends held a spa-themed bridal shower for her over the weekend at the Soho Farmhouse in London, England.

Sophia looked stunned as she became the envy of her classmates this morning calling it a "dream come true" to meet Meghan, adding: "I will never forget this day".

Earlier today, we shared the secret nod to International Women's Day which featured in the ensemble Meghan Markle wore today.

And although the couple was there to encourage girls to pursue jobs in STEM, one girl was inspired by Markle's past career in the arts.

Meghan Markle's wedding dress will undoubtedly inspire millions of copycat styles, just as Kate Middleton and Princess Diana's did before her - which is why the reported cost of the gown isn't a complete surprise.

Meghan made a decision to match her coat with a crisp, white, All Saints Ridley white turtleneck jumper. Later on, the couple joined one of the Royal Foundation's pet projects, Coach Core, which provides coaching sessions in Birmingham, teaching people between the ages of 16 and 24 everything from boxing to basketball. Prince Harry told female students Tara Vooght and Lauren Bull, both 15, who hope to become engineers, "It's a great choice, we want to get away from [the idea] that it's all men in overalls and oily rags".
