Nine-year-old Adam Adnajjad, who is in Year 4, said: “I spoke and touched both and I’m not going to wash my hands! They said how old are you and when I’m grown up what do I want to do, and what subjects I’m best at. It was so cool!”

When asked what’s the best thing about the royals, pupil Sonny Jackson : “They are really rich, and they are also very nice.”

One of the students was also heard asking Meghan how old she was – although she didn’t reply.
