Britain's Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle have visited Belfast for their first official jointtrip to Northern Ireland.

The couple earlier watched performances by local schools to celebrate the Arts, visited a youth-led peace-building initiative by Co-operation Ireland and they also visited one of Belfast's oldest buildings, The Crown Liquor Saloon.

They also went on a walk about in Belfast city centre. 

The couple then moved on to Titanic Belfast - the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience.

Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Karen Bradley says they got a warm welcome.

"It’s been a real honour to welcome Prince Harry and Megan Markle to Northern Ireland for their first visit as a couple.

"To see the reaction, particularly from the young people... and the screaming, it was like greeting rock stars - it was absolutely incredible.

"And I'm sure that that warm welcome will mean that we'll see the couple in Northern Ireland many, many times in the years to come".
