This is lovely.

From their fashion choices to their ripping up the royal rule book on the regular, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle never fail to make viral news. And with the recent private jet controversy, this week has been no different, seeing them publicly discussed by everyone from A-listers to media outlets, with close friend of the couple Elton John even having to step in and defend them.

This week however it wasn’t their luxurious life choices but their relatable side that saw them making news as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted having a very low key date in an English pub.

The royal couple reportedly took their three-month-old son to The Rose & Crown pub in Winkfield, Berkshire, enjoying a roast together.

‘Meghan was cradling Archie most of the time,’ an onlooker told The Sun’s royal correspondent Emily Andrews. ‘The little lad was as good as gold, I didn’t hear him cry once while he was there.’

Going on to recall the date the source continued: ‘[Harry and Meghan] chatted away like any normal couple and were laughing a lot’.

And how did they keep their privacy? According to onlookers, they kept a low profile, aided by staff who helped, so in fact they weren’t actually noticed by patrons.

Well that’s lovely.
