Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have stepped out in the birthplace of their royal titles, delighting waiting fans with jokes and sweet anecdotes.

Thousands lined the streets of Sussex for the newlyweds as they made their way through both the East and Western parts, laughing together and looking well and truly loved-up.

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were seen laughing and holding hands throughout the visit.

Meghan wore a green Hugo Boss skirt and Armani coat.

Fans were ecstatic to greet the royals.

Wearing a dark green Hugo Boss skirt, a shirt from & Other Stories and an Armani cream-coloured coat, the Duchess couldn’t have looked more chic as she walked the streets with her new husband.

Harry wore a grey suit and white shirt, and living up to his reputation, spent much of the visit high-fiving and joking around with those in the crowd.

Ever the natural with kids, Harry was in true form.

The pair were all smiles as they stepped out in their namesake county.

There were a number of sweet moments intertwined with humour during the visit.

One royal fan gushed over Meghan’s response when she told her how much she loved her mum, Doria Ragland.

Taking to Twitter, the fan relayed the encounter with the Duchess: “Me: ‘Will you tell your Mum I love her?'”

“Meghan: little gasp! ‘Oh I will! We have that in common, don’t we?'”

In a funnier turn of events, the pair were also greeted by some school students from Westbourne House School, who gifted them with an A to Z of Sussex. It included pictures of famous local produce and historic landmarks from the area.

According to Hello! the pair were thrilled with the gift, but not as thrilled as the year six teacher minding the students.

She shook Harry’s hand excitedly saying: We’ve come to see you… I’m not letting go!”

Pulling a funny face, Harry replied: “Um, please let go.”

The royal couple had a humorous moment with a besotted teacher looking after some year six students.

It wasn’t just humans that turned out to see Harry and Meghan!

Harry also proved his knack with kids once again.

Caught in a video, Harry greeted some young children, one of whom was very quiet and tired. Not missing a beat, Harry told another toddler friend close by that she needed to cheer her up!

The royal couple spent the day in Sussex visiting community groups and youth charities, as well as attending the opening a new university centre.

The couple couldn’t have looked happier together as they visited a youth centre in Sussex.

Harry and Meghan laughed and held hands throughout the visits.

The visit marked the pair’s first to Sussex together. These kinds of royal walkabouts are relatively few and far between due to security concerns, however Prince Harry and Meghan took it all in their stride.

The pair are set to visit Australia in a couple of weeks time, arriving in Dubbo on October 17 followed by Melbourne the next day. They will then head to Sydney for the Invictus Games, followed by Fraser Island on October 22.
