The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Morocco for their first official visit to north Africa.
The royal couple's three-day trip is aimed at strengthening the UK's links with Morocco – which is one of the few stable countries in the region.
Their visit will also focus on gender equality, with the pair discussing Morocco's attitudes towards women with British ambassador Thomas Reilly.
Mr Reilly said the issue is “close to their royal highnesses' hearts”.
Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, touched down in Casablanca airport on Saturday evening, although flight delays meant they were two hours late for their welcoming ceremony.

They entered the airport's royal suite where they were offered the traditional welcome of milk and dates.
