I'm not sure what we did to deserve this great luck, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise appearance in Belfast today. Hooray!
According to royal reporters, the press had to keep the news under wraps for security reasons, but they did know about the planned trip.

And, in another surprise, Markle, pants enthusiast, switched up her go-to outfit today. Instead of her usual trousers look, Markle chose a green midi skirt by Greta Constantine, a cream Victoria Beckham sweater (she and the designer formerly known as Posh Spice are friends, remember (opens in new tab)), Mackage coat (which miraculously is not completely sold out her (opens in new tab)e!), Charlotte Elizabeth bag (opens in new tab), and brown velvet pumps (opens in new tab).
Unsurprisingly, she looked amazing:
"Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's first stop is the Eikon Centre, where an event is being held to mark the 2nd year of ‘Amazing the Space’, a youth-led peace-building initiative," details the Kensington Palace twitter account (opens in new tab). "Funded by the Northern Ireland Executive Office and organised by [Co-operation Ireland], ‘Amazing the Space’ was launched by Prince Harry in September 2017 to encourage young people to become ambassadors for peace within their communities."
