The royal tot's sweet outfit appears to be a tribute to his dad Prince Harry, who wore an almost identical outfit in January 1985 when he was nearly four months old as he was carried off a plane at Aberdeen airport by his mum, Princess Diana.

Meghan looked chic inn a cream cardigan, white jeans and flat pumps.

Harry wore a grey blazer, white shirt and dark trousers.

Following their arrival, Meghan changed her outfit to visit the Nyanga Township in South Africa.
