As Prince Harry approached the pupils he asked them which school they were from.

To shouts of 'Prebendal' from the children he responded 'I can't hear you' prompting great excitement as they shouted even louder.

A Prebendal student said: "I'm never washing my hand again."

Nicolas, also a Prebendal pupil added: "They said hello, I don't quite know how I felt."

Ted, 12, also from Prebendal was keen to see them return and suggested they visit his school, 'in the playground'.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Chichester to see a copy of the American Declaration of Independence.
