The 33-year-old royal and his fiancée will make a trip to youth-orientated radio station Reprezent FM in the London district of Brixton on January 9, in what will be one of their first royal engagements since becoming engaged late last year.

Reprezent FM was founded in 2008 as a response to the rise in knife crime in South London, and runs accredited training in topics ranging from audio and radio production and editing, to communication skills and confidence building, work experience and volunteering.

Whilst at the radio studio, Harry and Meghan, 36, will learn more about the training programmes, and meet some of the current and former volunteers who have benefited from their time on the courses.

Kensington Palace confirmed the proposed visit on Tuesday (02.01.18) when they tweeted: "Prince Harry and Ms Markle will visit @ReprezentRadio in Brixton on 9th January, to see their work supporting young people through creative training in radio and broadcasting, and to learn more about their model of using music, radio and media for social impact."

It comes shortly after Harry and Meghan's first ever royal visit as an engaged couple, which took place shortly after they announced their plans to wed, and was in the form of a trip to Nottingham for a series of royal duties.

During their visit, the pair headed to the Terrence Higgins Trust World Aids Day charity fair and also visited Nottingham Academy, where they met with headteachers taking part in the Full Effect programme, which aims to stop young people getting involved in violence and crime.

And former 'Suits' actress Meghan admitted she was "thrilled" to visit the city.

She told one member of the crowd that had gathered to greet them: "I'm so happy. It's just such a thrill to be here."
