A Christchurch teen has had an "amazing" experience cheering on her stepdad at the Invictus Games along with Prince Harry and girlfriend Meghan Markle. 

The prince and Markle held hands as they walked toward Toronto's city hall and attended a wheelchair tennis event between Aussies and Kiwis at Harry's Invictus Games for wounded veterans.

The two were pictured sitting together and holding hands in their first public appearance.

Christchurch teenager, Olivia Kornal, 16, was sitting near the royal pair cheering on her stepdad Glenn Barnes, the Daily Mail reports.

"I gave them a pin, it was an I Am Kiwi and one of a rugby ball. Harry took them because Meghan had her hands full," she told the Daily Mail.

Ms Kornal said she overheard Prince Harry explaining the Invictus tennis rules, which are different to usual rules.

"It was amazing, really amazing.

"They were watching the game and cheering on my stepdad."

Markle is a Toronto-based actor in the legal drama Suits.

She appeared at the games' opening ceremony this weekend, cheering from the stands while Harry sat several rows away beside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US first lady Melania Trump.

The couple has been photographed together in the past but this is the first time they have appeared together at an official event.
