Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle's visit to Wales is delayed due to their train running late.

The Royal Couple are due to embark on their first official visit to the Welsh capital.

A spokesperson for Great Western Railway Service said the delay is due to a points failure at Didcot Parkway.

Starting at the city’s Cardiff Castle, they will meet members of the public before enjoying a taste of Welsh culture, sport and heritage. They will also learn about some of the organisations that work in communities across the city.

We would like to extend a warm Welsh welcome to Prince Harry and Ms Markle and we are delighted that they will join us at Cardiff Castle on what is their first official Welsh visit together.

Their visit will aim to showcase some of the rich heritage and culture that we are very proud of here in Cardiff as well as giving them the opportunity to meet individuals and organisations who are working to promote the Welsh language.

Later they will visit Star Hub in Splott to meet some of the individuals and organisations whose work is having a positive impact on their communities. Croeso i Gaerdydd.”

– Cllr Huw Thomas, Leader, Cardiff Council
