And the young royals finally delivered on Christmas Day as both couples were seen arriving at Sandringham for their festive celebrations.

All looked happy and relaxed as they followed the Duke of Edinburgh, at the traditional Christmas day church service.

It’s a big event in the royal’s festive calendar – and was an even bigger moment for Meghan as she is the first fiancee to have been invited.

The Duchess of Cambridge displayed the tiniest hint of her baby bump, wearing a tartan overcoat.

Meghan, meanwhile, had opted for a neutral palette of tan and beige, complete with a rather interesting brown hat, which some wags have unkindly compared to the poo emoji!

And it looks as though Harry and Meghan’s more relaxed demeanour could be rubbing off on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Look closely, and you will see that William is holding Kate’s hand – not something they are given to doing in public often.

Feel the love, everyone!

Last week, Harry and Meghan shared official engagement pictures, taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

Kensington Palace tweeted out some of the images today, and they left fans in raptures.

The Royal account said: “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to release official photographs to mark their engagement.”

That tweet was then followed up by two images of the happy couple – one in stylish black and white.

Meghan’s huge engagement ring is on prominent display in the shots, with one valuer suggesting it would sell for more than £122,000 – although with its history, it’s priceless.

Sophie Lomax of 77Diamonds.com told The Express: “Prince Harry has chosen a a trilogy ring.

“He is said to have designed the ring and incorporated some of his mother Princess Diana’s diamonds in it, making it a jewel of inestimable value.

“With two round diamonds supporting what looks like a 2.5 carat cushion cut diamond, the stones are set in white gold with the main band of the ring in yellow gold.”

If the engagement pictures look this good, we can only imagine how incredible the wedding snaps will be.
