Meghan Markle DRAGS Prince Harry to greet ENTHUSIASTIC pup during first Sussex visit
MEGHAN Markle was filmed dragging Prince Harry towards an adorable pup and its owner as the couple embarked on their first visit to their namesake county of Sussex
A beaming Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived in Chichester to kickstart their first visit to Sussex on Wednesday morning.
An enthusiastic dog appeared to capture the attention of the Duchess of Sussex as she greeted the awaiting crowd, spurring her to bring over Prince Harry to also greet the pup.
Meghan Markle – donning a cream coat paired up with a bottle green lambskin pencil skirt and a simple black blouse to match – can be seen in the chatting to the dog’s owner before trying to attract the attention of Prince Harry with her extended arm.
She was then filmed taking his hand to guide him toward the adorable dog, putting her hand on his shoulder to get his attention on the pup after the Duke became distracted by other members of the crowd.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Edes House, West Street, Chichester, as part of their first joint official visit to Sussex.
Around 1,000 excited royal fans lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the royal couple as they touched down in their namesake county for the very first time.
Classmates Kieran Rutherford and Thomas Symington, both 10, presented the Duchess with an A to Z of Sussex made by pupils at their school.
Meghan was heard saying “oh my goodness you guys, thank you, that’s very cool” as she was presented with the book, including pictures of famous local produce like English wine, historic landmarks and beauty spots.
Thomas earlier said: “We want to tell them all about Sussex because it is the best county in the world.”
Prince Harry high-fived some of the students in attendance after discovering the kids were missing a Latin test but insisted “education is very important.”
The couple has travelled to Sussex to visit different areas of the county to see the work of local hard-working charities.
The Duke and Duchess officially opened the University of Chichester’s Engineering and Digital Technology Park in Bognor Regis before heading to Brighton for a visit to the Royal Pavillon.
Peter Field, Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex, said he had been looking forward to the couple visiting: “Ever since their wedding day, the people of Sussex have been eagerly awaiting news of when the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit the two counties and it was a great pleasure for me when I heard that they were coming and I was asked to help organise the visit.
“There is no doubt that since Her Majesty the Queen gave them the title of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day, at a ceremony watched by over two billion people worldwide, that most people in the world are
