In the hot seat: Harry and Meghan lark around as they hitch a ride in mini Land Rovers driven by children
Harry and Meghan showed their playful side today as they hitched a ride on the back of mini Land Rovers – driven by children.
The duke pumped his fists in the air as he was driven round the small course in the toy-style car by Scarlett Vroegop, the four-year-old daughter of a Dutch competitor at the Invictus Games.
Meanwhile his wife the duchess laughed and waved at fans as she was driven by four-year-old Mya Poirot, who is also the daughter of a French competitor, while clutching a Canadian flag.
The couple then posed for photos with family members of the two kiddie drivers in The Hague. After chatting with other competitors, the couple were driven away in a Land Rover defender.

Emy Poirot, whose daughter drove the duchess, told MailOnline: ‘It was so lovely and Meghan was so nice. It’s quite unbelievable really.
‘She was lovely and we never expected her to sit with Mia. It is something to remember when she is older. I am just so happy.’
Emu’s husband had earlier won a gold medal in the Land Rover Driving Challenge.
The royal couple were all smiles as they dressed down for their second appearance at The Hague in Holland, with Meghan swapping out a crisp white pant suit for blue jeans, a dark box jacket and pump shows while Harry wore a black T shirt and chinos.
A large group of Americans in the crowd called out to the duchess and she responded with a smile and wave, with shouts of ‘Meghan, over here’ from spectators hoping to get her attention heard as she walked with other dignitaries to the centre of the course.
She then watched as Harry was driven in a white Land Rover through a water obstacle on the course during The Land Rover Driving Challenge.
Suits star Meghan will do a reading of her children’s picture book The Bench tomorrow before flying back to her £11million Californian mansion.
But it seems the royal couple couldn’t go anywhere without being followed by a Netflix camera crew filming their every move for an upcoming documentary with the streaming giant about the Games – including their meet-and-greet at the Zuiderpark.
