"One of the children wanted us to place it with the other tributes at the 'Queen's house' as he called it.
"We were so lucky to be able to hand it to Meghan who was so lovely, spending the time to find out about who made the wreath."
It wasn't the only act of kindness Meghan was seen displaying throughout the day.
She was also heard making a touching comment to a Royal aide about keeping a promise.
Footage shows the aide offering to take some of the flowers which the duchess had been given by mourners.
She apparently told him that she would keep a hold of them as she had promised that she would place them at the gate on behalf of the well-wishers.
It’s thought that she said: "I told them I'd place them over there so it's OK. Thank you. I appreciate it though."
The doting royal also received a hug from a young fan.
Amelka Zak, 14, told CNN: “We just waiting for her to come and she came over and asked my name and how my day was and how long I was waiting.
“I asked her if I could have a hug and she hugged me back. It was just quite an amazing moment.”
Only William and Kate — newly appointed Prince and Princess of Wales — were expected to meet the public from 4.30pm.
But the walkabout was delayed until 5.15pm to include Harry and Meghan.
The young well-wisher said she “looks up to Meghan” and revealed the touching reason she felt like she needed to embrace the duchess.
She explained: “It just went through my mind and everyone was kind of cheering me on.
“I guess I just felt like I needed to in a way."
