"It was a dream come true". 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.

The wedding dress will be worn by Meghan when she marries Prince Harry on May 19 at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, and every detail of the gown will instantly be poured-over and discussed by magazines, TV stations and the internet in the moments after it is first seen.

Prince Harry and Markle met with STEMettes, an organization that aims to inspire girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths, inside Millennium Point.

Though Meghan attended a Catholic school, she is actually a Protestant. He said "and Meghan is".

"The one who dares to fly in the face of all these stereotypes is the best kind of role model a young female can have".

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

"She told us Harry had designed it, and we said it was lovely, and she said "thank you very much", added the 46-year-old from Kings Norton, Birmingham.

The former actress joked about the British weather with Canadian student Brandy Davis, 20.

Meghan gave a schoolgirl a hug when she revealed her acting dream.

"Then Meghan asked me what I thought about the weather". She was fondly known as the "People's Princess", after all. "She said "yes, we're in the same boat".

There's something to be said about couples who step out in matching style.

"I can never forget that this day happened", Sophia Richards said. Harry reportedly told the teenagers: "You must have brains the size of a planet". "You've got to carry it on".

Markle was also confirmed immediately after the baptism, meaning she is now able to join her Harry at Holy Communion.

The couple were greeted by John Crabtree, Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands, and Ms Markle wore a coat by J Crew, pants by Alexander Wang and an AllSaints jumper.
