Newly engaged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were spotted in Wimbledon, shopping for Christmas presents at high-street retail chain Wilko. The store was abuzz with excitement as the couple were seen to be stocking up on festive treats.

But all was not as it seemed, as the pair turned out to be professional lookalikes.

Prince Harry is said to have first met Markle near the spot where the departmental store's newest outlet has opened. At the time, the Suits actress was in the area for the annual tennis tournament.

The couple have also spoken about how during the initial stages of their relationship, they often spent nights in bonding over cooking.

The doppelgängers were seen buying a Wilko Blox Castle Mega Set for Prince Harry's nephew George and a Wilko Foam Wand and Tiara for his sister Charlotte.

The Duke of Cambridge will be getting a 'brother' mug from "Prince Harry" while the Duchess will receive a Glow beauty set and pregnancy vitamins from her brother-in-law.

The Queen, meanwhile, will be presented with a luxury bath and body set and some stylish tumblers for her Christmas tipples.

The lookalike couple then went on to pick up a tray to help them recreate a dish of roast chicken, something they often cooked when they were dating. Along with it, the two also bought some candles and a throw for their new home at Nottingham Cottage in the Kensington Palace compounds.

Wilko is no stranger to royal guests as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also spotted in the brand's Kensington store in 2015.

Wilko Wimbledon store manager Peter Butterworth said: "There were more than a few shocked faces and plenty of double-takes as 'Harry and Meghan' paid their unexpected visit to our new Wimbledon store.

"The truth is, of course, that it wasn't actually the royal couple, but one of the UK's most popular Harry and Meghan lookalikes.

"The effect their visit had was no less dramatic though.

"We're hugely proud of our new home in the heart of Wimbledon, which has everything anyone would need to make their Christmas a right royal occasion."

The real royal couple is set to tie the knot in May 2018.
