The rest of the video is made up of short clips showing Meghan and Harry chatting to attendees and listening to speeches. 

Judi watched the couple’s interaction and commented: “It’s interesting to see some early signs of a possible conflict of styles here in terms of their approach to royal behaviour that Harry and Meghan did later appear to iron out.

“Meghan was new to the job but clearly keen to approach it with her signature skills of authentic engagement. 

“Her chats with people when she was on royal visits and appearances always tended to look more like interested, in-depth discussions than the usual well-timed small-talk, whereas Harry looked more tuned into the time constraints and the signals from whoever’s job it was to usher him around.” 

She continued: “For Harry this skill of being shepherded would have been learned from a very early age, like a presenter learns to use autocue, but here we can see Meghan engrossed in conversation and clearly missing the ushering signals behind her.

“Harry looks impatient and the way he leans to call Meghan twice by name with none of the usual social subtlety or etiquette means he interrupts her mid-conversation.

“To add to this he also performs an extended hand beckon with the fingers curled to suggest she needs to move quickly.

“Meghan’s smile drops and she immediately complies and apologises verbally in a way that is possibly slightly more submissive than his signals deserve. 

“She touches Harry in a tie-sign gesture to signal she’s now fully focused on him but his small ushering or truncated pushing hand on her back does appear to lack charm here,” Judi said. 

Fans watched the video and commented their thoughts below. 

Someone with the username Ask Why said: “I really like how Harry is guiding Meghan through this daunting process: With cameras flashing in her face and certain kinds of people waiting for her to misstep.  All the while Harry’s there by her side, helping her, sheltering her. Splendid.” 

YouTuber Mjgirl55 wrote: “It’s so sweet how he takes care of her.” 

WateverWatever04 added: “She’s so adorable!! The way she said ‘Oh sorry.’” 

Another person with the username JustMe said: “The way he call her meg and the way she say oh sorry and how gorgeous she looks in that is too much cuteness to handle.”

Raflesia Andalas said underneath the video: “I Like the way Meghan respond to Prince Harry…Oooh Sorry so polite.”
