Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's surprise trip to Belfast on Friday threw up a bit of a surprise for the loved-up couple when they encountered some severed limbs.

During their visit to the Titanic Belfast visitor attraction and Catalyst Inc they were introduced to Nuala Campbell, the founder of Titanic FX, which makes prosthetic limbs that are used in films and TV shows.

They often crop up on Game of Thrones which is filmed in Northern Ireland among other locations.

One of the limbs was a severed and decaying foot, which Ms Campbell revealed was modelled on her own foot.

According to the Daily Mail Harry quipped, "That's your foot?  You might want to get that looked at" before refusing to touch it. He did, however, touch a finger, which he described as 'horrible'.

Harry and Meghan's faces said it all really.  But Ms Campbell later said their reactions were no different than anyone else's.
