On January 14, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Birkenhead, a town in Merseyside.

The couple firstly visited Hamilton Square, where they saw a new Wilfred Owen sculpture that was made on the occasion of the centenary of the poet’s death. Afterwards Harry and Meghan chatted with local residents at Number 7, a Feeding Birkenhead citizen’s supermarket cafe which provides food for those who are unable to afford it otherwise and is run and supported by local coalitions of churches, food banks and community groups.

Harry and Meghan also visited Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, a support group that was founded in 2011 and supports women who are newly released from prison. Training courses for local women are offered under the organisation who are also part of other support groups surrounding mental health issues, domestic abuse and addiction.

The couple’s last visit in Birkenhead was to the Hive Wirral Youth Zone, where they watched a dance performance by a local dance troupe. The organisation was founded by OnSide Youth Zones and aims to create a safe, comfortable and enjoyable place for local young people and children.

During the visit, Meghan also revealed that she and Harry’s first child is due in April and revealed that she liked the name Amy after speaking to children from St. Anne’s Primary School who asked her what her favourite girl’s names were.
