Prince Harry joked about fiancee Meghan wearing the trousers in their relationship as they met with young DJs during their second public engagement today.

Harry and Meghan visited urban radio station, Reprezent in Brixton, south London, where they chatted to dozens of young DJs - with Harry even carrying off a complicated ‘fist bump’ with one.

During a discussion about gender equality station manager Adrian Newman told Harry they had a question for him to which he pointed at Meghan and swiftly replied: “She answers the questions!”

“Yes talking of gender equality!” Meghan quickly snapped back, with a smile on her face.

The couple enjoyed a tumultuous welcome to Pop Brixton , where the station, which has been running for 15 years, is based.

Meghan and Harry smiled broadly as people cheered and shouted - and in response to Harry’s gesticulating to the crowds and comment “this is so loud, you have to”, Meghan turned and blowed a kiss, which had everyone screaming even louder.

Meghan was wearing a £578 camel 'Brando' coat by Canadian label Smythe, a scarf by Jigsaw and a £45 sweater by Marks & Spencer.

However, the bride-to-be appeared shocked at the adoring response from fans.

Harry motioned toward the fans behind them as they spoke at the entrance to the building.

Harry said: “It’s so loud.

"Give ‘em a wave.”

This sparked the fans to cheer even louder as Meghan turned around.

But the royal-to-be was shocked at the response, putting her hand to her mouth.

Inside the station, Meghan took off her coat to show off a black Marks & Spencer jumper today - a far cry from the pricey outfits of her previous public appearances.

She also kept her hair more casual, wearing it up.

Harry was wearing a Sentaler scarf along with a Smythe coat.

Meghan said to one staff member: “It is so nice to meet you."

The couple have been listening into the station and sharing a joke with staff while wearing headphones.

The song? The appropriately titled to Flirt by Pote for the loved up couple.

The station trains hundreds of young people every year in media and employment skills.

The Reprezent training programme was established in Peckham in 2008, in response to the alarming rise in knife crime, to help young people develop and socialise through radio.

One quick-thinking DJ slipped Prince Harry his business card as the couple left the venue.

The prince smiled and accepted it with a slightly confused look on his face.

"DJ at your wedding!" the man joked.

The visit has left the London neighbourhood buzzing with excitement - with hundreds lining the streets to welcome the couple.

Shane Carey, 46, founder and chief executive officer of Reprezent, who hosted the couple, said: "Since the visit was announced there's been massive excitement in the station - much more than I could have expected."

He added: "We're having the spotlight shone on us from all the world's media pretty much, we've never had this attention.

"The whole point of this is that the young people learn how to be creative and then shine with it and they're really getting a chance now."

Harry and Ms Markle were whisked inside Pop Brixton - a community project that houses independent local businesses, start-ups, new restaurants and the not-for-profit station in shipping containers.

Dozens of well-wishers had been allowed into the building's covered courtyard and they lined barriers as the couple walked past.

Inside Reprezent's studios, the couple, who got engaged in November and will wed in May, met presenter Gloria Beyi, 17, host of radio show Glory Talks, who was on air, and her producer, Finn Whitehead, 27.

Alongside the music, she chats with her listeners about her favourite tracks, tweets and life generally.

Miss Beyi said there had been "a lot of shock" around the visit, adding: "For two people who are making headlines in the news to come to a place where there's usually just a little column in the newspaper (about us) - I think a lot of people thought those two worlds would never collide."

After having a private meeting with Carey, the founder of Reprezent FM, Harry and Meghan dropped into a live broadcast to meet presenter "Glory".

The couple timed their entrance perfectly as the presenter had just started a track which meant they could talk without the listeners hearing them.

The 17-year-old DJ admitted she was the youngest in the station when she was quizzed by Ms Markle.

The teenager talked about how she had been given the opportunity to host her own show after doing work experience at the station when aged 16.

At one point Harry made Meghan laugh by gesturing towards a CD mixer as if he was about to start "scratching" a track.

As their few minutes with the presenter ended, Meghan praised the presenter, adding: "I can see why your show is so popular. You're so thoughtful and your approach is so engaging."

Meghan then made everyone laugh when she added: "I must tune in."

Harry also learnt a new ‘Reprezent’ handshake from the station's DJ Remi.

Amid much laughing, the Prince learned the art before everyone exploded into laughter.

Laughing, the Prince said: “Don’t go anywhere, I want a group photo later.”

Harry and Meghan are being told about the programmes and meeting the volunteers who have benefited from their time on the courses.
