Prince Harry Narrowly Escapes Eternal Hold of Excited Teacher

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, ventured out on Wednesday morning for their first trip to, uh, Sussex.

The royal duo looked charming and lovey as ever — Harry in a slate gray suit and Meghan in a blue-green leather BOSS skirt ($595; falling below her knees, a forest green blouse from & Other Stories ($99;, and a pair of tan suede pumps. The duchess accessorized with a fittingly green leather Gabriela Hearst bag ($1,995;

Though Markle’s steal of a silk blouse has since sold out, the European brand has an eerily similar top in a slightly darker shade of green.

During their inaugural visit to Sussex, Meghan and Harry met with school children (and their very, er, passionate teachers) and caught a rare glimpse of the Declaration of Independence (there are only two handwritten copies, and for some reason one of them lives in Sussex).

Harry, ever the bad boy, high-fived students when he learned they were missing Latin to visit him today. “I think that’s fantastic,” he teased. The best moment of the outing, though, came when one of the school teachers grabbed hold of Harry's hand, jokingly telling him, "I'm never letting go." Harry laughed, but then, very seriously replied, "Please let go."

When in Sussex!
