The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a wintry welcome to the English city, which is about 120 miles from their London home. Snow flurries fell as the parents-to-be, who are expecting their first child this spring, arrived for a day trip to meet with locals and experience some of the city's culture.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, did not let the near-freezing temperatures and snow stop them from greeting well-wishers, including an adorable group of school children, who also braved the cold to see them.

Meghan is no stranger to cold weather, having lived in Toronto while she filmed the hit legal drama “Suits.” She left the show after getting engaged to Harry in 2017.

Meghan, who was heard telling well-wishers to stay warm, wore a black coat over a colorful Oscar de la Renta dress. She accented her dress with olive green boots that appear to be by designer Sarah Flint and retail for $695.

The couple also got to watch a workshop with local school children who are part of the Old Vic’s community outreach program.

After watching the performance, Meghan and Harry visited One25, a charity in Bristol that helps women "trapped in or vulnerable to street sex work," according to the charity's website.

Meghan helped pack lunches and warm clothing for women. While packing the lunches, Meghan had the idea to write positive messages on the bananas, according to Kensington Palace.
