Harry and Meghan are 'hand-in-hand' on shopping trip

By Harriet Line

Prince Harry held his girlfriend Meghan Markle's hand while carrying a Christmas tree after a spot of incognito festive shopping, it has been claimed.

The 32-year-old royal was seen buying a £65 Nordmann Fir from Pines and Needles in Battersea Park, south London, on Monday evening.

Harry and his American actress girlfriend spent around half-an-hour in the pop-up store, before paying by card and walking hand-in-hand back to a people carrier.

Tree-seller Zaqia Crawford (30), from New York, served the pair but did not realise who they were until her colleague Ollie Wilkinson (22) told her.

She said: "They came in to buy a tree, they were looking at trees and I went over to help them pick the tree.

"They knew exactly which tree they wanted - it wasn't exactly a long process. They were really friendly, really nice... I didn't know it was them at all."

Ms Markle (35) was wearing a pair of stiletto boots and wool coat, while Harry donned a beanie hat and chinos, Ms Crawford recalled.

Mr Wilkinson said he was "shocked", but still managed to give them a complimentary bunch of mistletoe.
