Heather appeared in the original pictures wearing khaki overalls and in her own pictures, shared on Instagram, she wore the same outfit and posed with two of her children.

In the pictures originally shared, a woman that appeared to be Meghan was wearing black jeans, a white top and a large brown straw hat – thought to be by her favourite, Janessa Leone – whilst attentively watching her son Archie, three, who is wearing an all-blue outfit and a red, white and blue cap.

Meghan and Heather have been friends for some years

Since their move to the US, the family are rarely pictured but it's clear that they are enjoying their time in the country and slowly exploring other areas outside of their home town of Montecito in California.

Last year, Prince Harry travelled to Fort Worth, Texas, and visited the historic Cowtown Coliseum and attended a Stockyards Rodeo event.
