A couple enjoying a New Year’s Day walk were left in amazement and shock after a chance encounter with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as they strolled in Canada.
Iliya Pavlovic and Asymina Kantorowicz were attempting to take a selfie of themselves with in front of stunning scenery during a walk on Vancouver Island when a young dark haired lady approached them.
Low and behold it was the Royal couple Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.
Meghan apparently walked over to the couple and asked if they were struggling and and offered to take the pics.
Asymina – noticed Meghan, 38, had walked over from a group who had two dogs with them.
She recognised one member as Suits actress Abigail Spencer – and it was only then that she realised the woman’s more famous former co-star and close royal friend was also present and had been the one to take their photo.
“I froze up. I actually couldn’t believe who it was,” the walker she told Canadian TV.
“Then I looked over to the side and that’s when I realised Prince Harry was standing there.
“I kept looking back and forth like, ‘Is this actually happening?'”
After accepting Meghan’s offer, Asymina admitted all she could think to say was “there’s only so much that selfie sticks can do”.
With a laugh, the Duchess replied “we’ll have to do better”, and Harry, 35, joked, “no pressure”.
In total the Duchess of Sussex took three shots before handing their phone back and saying “Happy New Year”.
The group then continued on their way, leaving the couple in disbelief at how “super friendly” they had been and wondering if it had been a “dream”.
