Prince Harry asked pupils which school they were from before speaking to individual students.

Nicolas, 10, said: “I spoke to Harry and Meghan and they said hello, I don’t quite know what I felt.”

Discussing a future visit he added he would like to see them visit Prebendal school ‘in the playground’.

Ted, 12, added: “I just watched Harry and Meghan walk past West Street and I commented on Meghan’s collection of flowers. She thanked me.”

Prebendal School is well versed in royal visitors having previously played host to the Queen, their lawn acting as a landing pad for the royal helicopter.

Head of Prebendal School, Louise Salmond Smith, said: “We were delighted to have Meghan and Harry coming so close to the school.

“The children were able to come out and see them and I know they will remember that for the rest of their lives.

“They were really excited. Lots of them got to speak to Meghan and Harry and it really was a memorable time for them.

“To have another royal visit on top of that [the Queen’s visit last year] is wonderful.”
