Prince Harry was reportedly mistaken for a Christmas tree vendor by an excited little boy who approached him while shopping with his wife Meghan Markle.

The odd confusion is said to have occurred on Tuesday when the The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were on the hunt for a tree for their mansion in Montecito, Calif. Where they will spend their first Christmas since stepping down as royals.

According to seller James Almaguer, who said he worked in the tree lot, the couple would have gone unnoticed, but a child approached Harry, seeking help.

“Meghan and Prince Harry walked into my job today and we sold them their Christmas tree,” he tweeted. “It was disappointing, but a very, very interesting experience.

James, whose Twitter handle is @imaJaaaaaames, claimed the couple had arranged for the land to be cleared, but that there was yet another family inside when they arrived.

“We had our lot empty when they got there – their agent promoted them a good time to come instead of us closing it,” he explained. ‘

“There was a family in there and their delighted little son ran through the trees to Harry and asked him if he was working here not knowing who it was. ”

James had nothing but good things to say about the Sussexes.

“Honestly, they seem to be very nice people,” he said. “Meghan looks very sweet and Harry sounded and acted honestly like a cold boy. I’m really glad they liked our trees. We had the best of ourselves. Very grateful.

The pop-up tree vendor is located about eight miles from the couple’s sprawling Montecito home, which they bought for $ 14.65 million over the summer.

According to the Big Wave Dave website, the shop has a number of tree types, including Douglas, Noble, Fraser, Grand, and Norman firs. Prices vary depending on type and size.

It has been reported that Harry and Meghan will not be spending Christmas at Sandringham and are “looking forward” to celebrating their first holiday with their 18-month-old son Archie in their new home.

Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl said the Sussexes were excited for their first American Christmas living in California and would travel to the UK days later, allowing them to self-isolate for two weeks before the case began of Meghan’s High Court against the Mail on Sunday, which begins January 11.

It will mark the second year the couple will spend the holidays away from the Queen, 94, and other royals – after spending the final holiday season with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland and their son in Canada .

The royal expert went on to signal that the news would likely be ‘disappointing’ for the monarch who Harry and his great-grandson Archie ‘miss’, whom she has not seen for a year.

Sources said Prince Harry has no plans to cross the Atlantic anytime soon due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The insider explained: ‘World travel has been made very complicated by the coronavirus pandemic and at the moment the Duke has no plans to return to the UK, certainly not until Christmas. “

Instead, the couple will travel to the UK with their son Archie between Christmas and New Years.

Sources said they plan to spend two weeks in self-isolation at Frogmore Cottage before Meghan’s High Court case begins on January 11.

Prince Harry and Meghan spent last Christmas in Canada, a first for the couple, who until then had celebrated the holidays at Queen’s Sandringham Estate every year since their engagement in 2017.

Harry had always spent Christmas at the Queen’s Norfolk home, except in 2012 while serving in Afghanistan.

The news comes after another source claimed Prince Harry and Meghan were planning to spend Christmas in the United States with musician David Foster.

The Mirror reported that the Duke and Duchess are planning to host Harry’s “surrogate” father, Canadian record producer David, and his wife Katharine McPhee for their own Christmas party in Los Angeles.

“Meghan really wants to welcome the first Christmas to their new home with her mom,” a source close to the couple said. “She is really excited and plans to practice all of the traditions she grew up with as a child, including cooking. “

Katherine, 36, has known the Duchess from her high school days in Los Angeles, having attended the same high school.

According to the source, David and Katherine have offered to host the festivities at their home; however, Meghan volunteered to host the celebration at their home.

It comes after another source told Vanity Fair’s Katie that the royal couple are enjoying their new life in California and their new home, and have no plans to return to the UK for Christmas.

They also suggested that Harry and Meghan might try to avoid tensions after the reported fall of the ‘Fab Four’.

“Let’s just say if things are going better between Harry and his brother, that’s not what it was, and I don’t think anyone is up for a cozy family Christmas right now,” the source added.
