They were met with cheers from fans who turned up to catch a glimpse of the iconic couple, who were recently named two of the world's most influential people by the TIME 100.

Meghan wore head-to-toe black, sporting a pair of chic, flared trousers, a longline coat, a black turtleneck jumper and a pair of elegant heeled court shoes. Meanwhile, Harry donned a black suit and tie with a crisp white shirt.

As they were photographed by the awaiting paparazzi, Harry was spotted paying tribute to his two-year-old little boy with the sweetest accessory.

Holding his black iPad case, Harry gave onlookers a glimpse of the heartwarming engraving on the bottom of the black, leather cover.

In gold writing, the cover appears to be embossed with "Archie's Papa" or "Archie & Papa".

So sweet!
