Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Tuesday will make their second official outing as British royals since their recent engagement, according to The Express.
The Express on Monday reported that the pair will visit Reprezent Radio, a youth broadcasting station in Brixton, South London.
“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will visit ReprezentRadio in Brixton on [the] 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,” Kensington Palace tweeted last week in an announcement of the visit.
Harry and Markle made their first official appearance as an engaged couple in Nottingham, England last month.
The Metro reported at the time that the duo’s visit aimed at raising awareness of HIV/AIDs and efforts to combat youth crime.
Reprezent Radio was created as a response to a rise in knife crime in London, with the station helping young people learn employment and media skills to keep them off the streets.
The broadcaster’s programs have since helped more than 4,000 youths, and another 3,000 are on its waiting list.
Participants are trained in audio and radio production, communication skills, confidence, editing, work experience and volunteering.
NBC News on Tuesday reported that Brixton has been called “London’s Harlem” and has become synonymous with the city’s Afro-Caribbean community.
Brixton suffered race riots during the 1980s, and it has since experienced sweeping gentrification and rising rent prices.
Some Brixton locals on Monday told NBC News that Harry and Markle’s benefit would have scant benefit for the area’s community.
The network’s other sources questioned whether Harry and Markle’s visit to Brixton had any relation to the latter’s biracial heritage.
“It’s a stunt for the royal family,” said Mike Eweje, who works at a store in Brixton called Budget Carpets.
“People don’t care about the royal wedding because they don’t care about people around here.”
Harry and Markle confirmed their engagement last November, and the couple has since set May 19 as their wedding date.
