The actress is said to have made the appearances alone, on two occasions, and comforted those whose communities were torn apart in the blaze.
The US actress arrived without Harry but was accompanied by royal officers to keep her safe.
A royal source said Ms Markle had ‘regularly’ been visiting the organisations – echoing the charitable work of her fiance’s late mother, Princess Diana.
Abdulrahman Sayed, chief executive of the Al Manaar mosque, said there had been at least three trips from members of the royal family since Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge met with those affected, according to The Telegraph.
The Al Manaar mosque was opened by Prince Charles in 2001.
Her visit comes after Harry and his older brother William publicly visited the mosque in September to support victims of the June 14 fire.
The pair went to the mosque on September 5 where they spoke with Syrian refugee Omar Al Haj Ali, 25, who managed to escape from the 14th floor flat he d with his brother Mohammad, 23, who perished in the fire.
In the shadow of the city’s world famous castle, crowds are expected to gather on the esplanade today to meet the prince and his fiancee as they greet well-wishers.
The trip to Scotland will be the fourth public appearance Ms Markle and Harry have made together and follows successful visits to Nottingham, Brixton in south London and Cardiff in the months that followed their engagement announcement in November.
The couple will then move on to the New Town to visit Social Bite, a social enterprise cafe which 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.
Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio stopped for lunch at Social Bite venture Home in Edinburgh’s west end in November 2016 while the Duchess of Cornwall and George Clooney have been to Social Bite’s Rose Street branch.
Prince Harry and Ms Markle will round off their visit by attending a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse to celebrate youth achievements marking Scotland‘s Year of Young People 2018, an initiative that aims to inspire Scotland through its young people.
