Prince Harry was reportedly mistaken for a store employee instead of a customer while out Christmas tree shopping in California over the weekend.

According to Twitter, while browsing the trees, a younger boy who obviously had no idea who Harry was, wandered up to him and asked about the Christmas trees.

"Meghan and Prince Harry came into my work today and we sold them their Christmas Tree," said Twitter user @imaJaaaaaames in a now removed tweet.

"We had our lot empty when they got there - their agent promoted them a good time to come instead of us shutting it down. There was one family in there and their stoked little son ran through trees up to Harry and asked if he worked here not knowing who that is," the real employee of the Christmas tree barn explained.

While the employee didn't elaborate on how Harry reacted to the mistaken identity, according to Elle magazine, he was calm and approachable: "They seems like very nice people honestly. Meghan sounds very kind and Harry sounded and acted like a chill lad honestly. I'm really glad they liked our trees," he said. "We got the best we could get from Wa. Very appreciative :)."
