The Duke & Duchess of Sussex had an official visit to explore the beautiful city of Birkenhead situated in Northern England. Firstly, they visited a new sculpture in Hamilton Square to mark the 100th anniversary of war poet Wilfred Owen’s death and then met members of the public who where waiting for them in Hamilton Square. Meghan received a lot of flowers and announced her 6 months pregnancy during her walkabout. Meghan & Harry didn’t talk about the sex of the baby and want to keep it secret.
After their walkabout, Meghan & Harry entered the Birkenhead town hall to sign the guest book and meet some of the workers members there.
The Duke & Duchess of Sussex had an embargoed engagement we only discovered during their visit. They officially opened ‘Number 7’, a ‘Feeding Birkenhead’ citizen’s supermarket and community café. The supermarket enables local families to buy their weekly shopping at a discounted price, and provides advice and advocacy on benefits, looking for work, debt, budgeting, and cooking. At the end of their visit, Meghan received many gifts for the baby and together they unveiled a plaque.
Next stop, Meghan and Harry went to visit Tomorrow’s Women Wirral. TWW is a project designed to benefit all women aged 18+ in the community and is committed to reducing female imprisonment, offending, and to provide assistance to those women who want to make positive lifestyle changes. During her visit at the charity, Meghan gave a beautiful speech about women’s empowerment before unveiling a plaque marking their visit.
For their last engagement of the day, Meghan & Harry visited Hive Wirral Youth Zone. Completed in 2016, the Youth Zone offers a wide range of activities for young people aged between 8 and 19 (and up to age 25 for those with a disability), including; dance, sport fitness, music and media. Children performed in front of the couple and had a chat with them at the end.
