Meghan gets a fright while racing miniature F1 cars in Melbourne

Harry and Meghan were both laughing after the scare.

The Duchess of Sussex had a fright as a miniature F1 car was louder than expected.

Meghan and husband Harry were being shown a display by the F1 in Schools team and were given the chance to race two miniature cars during a reception at Government House in Melbourne.

Upon seeing the table-turned-drag race track, Harry joked, “We should put one in Buckingham Palace.”

Pupils from Trinity Grammar, who have been involved with the programme, forgot to tell the couple about the noise generated by the car’s hydraulics when they started.

The lights went out and both Harry and Meghan pressed the buttons to launch their cars along the state dining room table.

There was a loud bang and Meghan looked surprised, then doubled over with laughter, as Harry looked on with a smile.
