A social enterprise café will be the first port of call in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s visit to Edinburgh next week.

They will follow in the footsteps of George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio when they drop in at Social Bite on Tuesday (13 February).

This will be their first official visit north of the border and it will help to mark the Scottish Year of Young People 2018.

Social Bite distributes 100,000 items of food and hot drinks to homeless people across Scotland each year, as well as employing staff who have experienced homelessness themselves.

While at the Rose Street café, Harry and Markle will learn more about the social enterprise, meet staff and tour the kitchen.

The royal couple will round off their visit by attending a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse to celebrate youth achievements.

Representatives from charities and youth organisations that work with and for young people across the country will be present.

Rather sad that Social Bite are pandering to Royal scroungers who are happy to flaunt their ill gotten wealth and power in the face of the genuine needy in society - if they were genuinely concerned they would not be wasting millions of public money on a fancy wedding; simple ceremony and donate the millions saved to good causes
