A salesman said that the Sussex's agent had arranged for the pair to pick out a tree when his shop was meant to be empty.

But one family was still milling around the trees and their child ran towards Harry thinking he was staff.

Posting on Twitter he wrote: "Meghan and Prince Harry came into my work today and we sold them their Christmas Tree.

"It was anticlimactic, but a very very interesting experience.

"We had our lot empty when they got there- their agent promoted them a good time to come instead of us shutting it down.

"There was one family in there and their stoked little son ran through trees up to Harry and asked if he worked here not knowing who that is.

"They seems like very nice people honestly. Meghan sounds very kind and Harry sounded and acted like a chill lad honestly. I’m really glad they liked our trees. We got the best we could get from Wa. Very appreciative."

It is believed Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, were shopping near their mansion in Montecito, near Santa Barbara.

The couple are expected to spend Christmas at home with 17-month-old Archie.

This week the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh revealed they are having a "quiet" Christmas at Windsor Castle for the first time in 33 years.

Her Majesty, 94, usually spends the festive season with her whole family at Sandringham but her kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren make up 10 separate households.

It is not clear if any of the royal family will be joining them for the celebrations.

This will be the first Christmas away from Sandringham since 1987.
