Meghan Markle is officially anti-social ... media that is.
Meghan Markle has closed all her social media accounts almost four months before her May wedding to Prince Harry.
Hundreds of well-wishers gathered to catch a glimpse of the couple as they visited Reprezent radio station, which is staffed entirely by young people and based in a community-led complex built out of old shipping containers. She recently moved from Toronto, where "Suits" is filmed, to London to live with Harry.
The bride's father, who has been divorced from Doria Ragland since Meghan was 6, has kept a low profile since the royal engagement was announced.
Markle, who has spoken out on women's issues, also homed in on presenter YV Shells, 24, asking him: "Is it you that does a lot of support of the women DJs?"
The organisation's CEO Shane Carey welcomed the visit saying: "We're having the spotlight shone on us from all the world's media".
"I must tune in", she added, prompting the gathered guests to laugh. "I think they're (a) very good match, I'm very happy for them, Meghan and Harry", he told a passerby while visiting a convenience store in Rosarito, Mexico.
The Reprezent training programme, established 10 years ago in response to rising knife crime, helps young people develop and socialise through radio and has become a springboard for United Kingdom music talent, with former DJs and presenters working in the music industry.
The UK Government has launched a four-week public consultation seeking views on whether to relax licensing hours across England and Wales to celebrate the wedding, set to take place on 19 May 2018.
