As Prince Harry’s Land Rover pulled up on the Main Avenue of Trinity Park crowds of people packed around the security fences and a loud cheer went up as he stepped out of the car.

Immediately the prince began to shake hands with a beaming smile and speak to members of the public, who were clearly thrilled.

Chants of “Harry! Harry!” could be heard from different parts of the crowd and a sea of mobile phones rose above people’s heads to capture a picture of the occasion.

Joanne Hughes brought her two children along to the Suffolk Show and gave a loud cheer when she saw Prince Harry approaching the Farm Discovery Zone.

“We’re very excited, it’s nice that there’s a really high-profile figure who has come to the Suffolk Show this year,” she said.

Jessie Nasmyth-Miller, 16, described Prince Harry as a “heartthrob” but was unable to get close enough for a good photograph.

“I got a really good photo of his left ear,” she said. “I’m going to put it on my wall.”
