While her wedding gowns received an overall "yes" from royal watchers (and more than the odd fair-weathered monarchist), the Duchess of Sussex's first turn as wedding guest since joining the royal family has divided opinions.

"Prince Charles admires Meghan for her strength and the backbone she gives Harry, who needs a tungsten-type figure in his life as he can be a bit of a softy".
