‘Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’ spotted Christmas shopping… in budget store

HE may be fifth-in-line to the throne, soon to be sixth, but Prince Harry has always been praised for keeping grounded.

From a young age, he visited countless homeless shelters and charity events with his mother Princess Diana and his older brother Prince William.

Aged 30, Harry created the Invictus Games, a Olympic style competition for wounded, injured or sick armed service men and women.

Now, the British royal has been ‘spotted’ shopping at budget chain Wilko ahead of the festive season.

Onlookers gazed on in shock as the world’s most famous couple hit up the Wimbledon branch of the store for some last minute gifts.

Harry and Meghan were seen filling their basket with various treats for the royal’s niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

However, all was not what it seemed.

The couple were actually professional look-a-likes.

The actors have been hired to promote the shiny new store.

This isn’t the first time royal doppelgangers were seen in the budget chain either.

In 2015 doubles of Kate Middleton and Prince William were spotted in the brand’s Kensington shop.

Chatting about the stunt, Wilko Wimbledon store manager, Peter Butterworth said: “There were more than a few shocked faces and plenty of double-takes as ‘Harry & Meghan’ paid their unexpected visit to our new Wimbledon store.”

After admitting it was not the real Harry and Meghan, he added: “The effect their visit had was no less dramatic though.”

Kensington Palace confirmed this week that the American actress will spend Christmas at Sandringham with The Queen and Prince Phillip.

Despite only becoming engaged last month, Ms Markle and Prince Harry are expected to spend the duration of the festive period on the Queen’s private estate in Norfolk.

They will be joined by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their two children.

While unconfirmed it is expected that Meghan will join the Royals as they walk to St Mary Magdalene Church on December 25.

Last year the 90-year-old monarch was forced to skip the Christmas Day service due to a ‘heavy cold.’

It was the first time she was unable to attend since 1988.

However, despite her absence Prince Phillip, 95, was still in attendance along with the future king Prince Charles.
