The cheers couldnt have been louder for the newly engaged couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The pair arrived before an awaiting crowd outside Reprezent, a radio station that provides educational and training programs for at-risk teens in the community.

At one point, the crowd of screaming fans yelled, "Meghan, we love you," to which Markle turned around, blushed, waved and blew a kiss toward the excited crowd.

I can tell you that at the end of the day I think its really simple. Were two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news. And I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was peoples perception. Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship.

The 36-year-old American actress and Prince Harry, who announced their engagement in November and are due to wed in May, then proceeded inside to the radio studio to see the work taking place at the station and the educational training program in place. Photos from the day show that the pair were met by eager students while touring the studio. 

Markle will be a new addition to the Royal Foundation, which serves as the staple for Prince Harry, William and Kate's philanthropic activities, following her spring wedding to Harry.
