As the crowds cheered and waved flags up South Street, round the Market Cross, and along West Street, the Royal car stopped opposite the Cathedral.

The couple were formally greeted by the Mayor of Chichester Martyn Bell and the Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex Mrs Susan Pyper.

After a brief exchange of pleasantries, Prince Harry and Meghan were quick to do a walkabout chatting to the throng of well-wishers.

The Duke wore a light grey suit and an open necked shirt. The Duchess wore a green leather skirt and knee-length pale coat.
