MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry enjoy a hike with their dogs on a public trail used by hundreds of walkers in locked-down LA.
The Sussexes wore bandanas over their faces to protect against killer coronavirus in the first picture of them since their move to the city.
The couple, who left baby Archie at home, had parked in a house-lined street before heading out on to the well-trodden community route popular with locals.
A security guard with a rucksack kept watch on the pair as they exercised their beagle, Guy, and black labrador Oz for an hour.
Another guard sat in a car near the trail. Harry, 35, protected himself from the heat in a brown baseball cap, sunglasses, a grey T-shirt and brown suede shoes.
Meghan, 38, who was carrying a gold-plated iPhone and a bottle of sanitiser, also wore shades and a baseball cap, as well as white trousers, a black top and trainers.
They both used blue bandanas to comply with new California regulations on face coverings to combat the spread of coronavirus.
A source told The Sun: “Harry and Meghan seemed in very good spirits and the dogs were clearly over the moon to be out and about.
“They were hiking for over an hour and when they got back to the car the dogs looked exhausted.
“Meghan even had to carry the beagle back because he was so worn out from the heat. There was one security guard with them during the hike.
“When they got back, they put the dogs in the trunk and Meghan drove off.”
The couple relocated to Meghan’s home town last month from their £11million bolthole on Vancouver Island in Canada.
They have said their security will be “privately funded” following a row over cost to the UK taxpayer but details have not been released.
The hike came just hours after the pair delivered free meals in West Hollywood for charity Project Angel Food, which is helping critically ill people who are at greater risk from Covid-19.
Recipient Dan Tyrell, 53, who has HIV, said: “For Harry and Meghan to do this is amazing.”
He said he suspected “something was going on” when he saw two blacked-out 4x4s on the road outside but did not let on he recognised the couple as he “didn’t want to make them uncomfortable”.
Project Angel boss Richard Ayoub said Meghan got the idea to help them from her mum Doria.
He added: “We’re completely honoured. They were extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in every single person they met.
