Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who received the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex from the Queen when they were married, just visited their namesake county for the first time.

The royal couple interacted with locals. The first group they met was a group of children from Westbourne House school. The kids had made them a guide to Sussex.

The Duchess of Sussex was charmed by the gift. She told the children, whose names she took the time to learn, “Oh my goodness, thank you. That’s very cool.”

The meeting with the children also featured a heartwarming moment where Prince Harry gave all of the children a high five. He also told them to remember that "education is very important."

While there, the couple took a look at a piece of America's history. They viewed a rare copy of the Declaration of Independence that is housed in Sussex. Its one of only two handwritten manuscript copies of the document. The other, of course, is housed in the Nation Archives in Washington D.C.

Wendy Walker, the West Sussex archivist, proudly showed them the rare Sussex copy of the American Declaration of Independence. Walker told Harry and Meghan how “it was drawn up in America, possibly in New York or Philadelphia,” to which Meghan exclaimed, “Wow, that’s really special.”

Harry then said: “That is absolutely amazing, so interesting.”

Meghan looked absolutely gorgeous for the special event. She wore a silk dark green shirt and a green leather pencil skirt. She balanced the all green ensemble with a cream cashmere coat by Armani. She also accessorized with beige suede heels.

She also returned to her signature low bun after wearing her straight for two events. It's a less high maintenance look for the royal, who naturally has curly hair.

After seeing the Declaration of Independence, the couple continued their tour of the area. It included meetings on mental health and touring local landmarks. 

Do you love her outfit? Her sister-in-law Kate Middleton also stunned in green yesterday for a less a formal occasion. Will you be wearing green this fall?
