Could Star Wars premiere be first official outing for engaged couple?

The European screening of the latest instalment in the hit saga is set for December 12 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Meghan Markle’s first official royal engagement could turn out to be the glittering premiere of the Star Wars movie The Last Jedi.

The European screening of the latest instalment in the hit saga is set for December 12 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The premiere will benefit the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, raising speculation that William, Kate and Harry could attend.

Harry might choose the event to introduce American actress Ms Markle, who is already at home on the red carpet, into the world of royal engagements.

Kensington Palace was not available for comment.

It could be the prince and his bride-to-be choose to bide their time before carrying out joint royal appearances ahead of their spring wedding.
