The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their first joint official visit to Sussex today (Wednesday, 3).

They started their day in Chichester, where they visited Edes House and were shown the rare Sussex copy of the American Declaration of Independence.

The Royal couple chatted to members of the public who came out to see them on West Street.

Harry and Meghan then travelled to Bognor where they opened up Chichester University’s new Tech Park building.

Afterwards they headed to Brighton to the Royal Pavilion, which was built in the mid 1780s by George, Prince of Wales, who later became the Prince Regent.

A large crowd was there to greet Harry and Meghan and some got the chance to say hello as they walked about and chatted to people.

 

Then the Royal Highnesses walked to Survivors’ Network, a charity that supports survivors of sexual violence and abuse in Sussex.

There the Duke and Duchess talked to service users, volunteers and staff.

They finished their day in Sussex in Peacehaven where they visited JOFF Youth Centre.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex Peter Field said:

“We are assured that they will try and visit regularly, because they want to build up a rapport with the two counties of East and West Sussex.

“This will hopefully be the first of many visits to come.”
