Meghan Markle in Cardiff with Harry on first trip to Wales

Meghan wrapped up against the biting cold in a black coat by Stella McCartney and trousers by the Welsh fashion house, Hiut Denim - and even let one fan kiss her hand (centre).

France demands more after UK pledges £45m for Calais

Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron are trying to thrash out their differences on borders and Brexit at a UK- France summit today. The leaders kicked off a summit at Sandhurst military academy this afternoon after enjoying lunch at the Royal Oak in the PM's Maidenhead constituency. The French president is thought to be demanding more money to boost the Calais economy - despite Britain already bowing to requests for a £45million contribution to stop migrants sneaking across the Channel. They could also have difficult exchanges over Brexit, amid fears Mr Macron will block an early agreement on a transition deal in a bid to exploit business anxiety and poach jobs. The flashpoints risk overshadowing the summit, which both leaders hope will underline the commitment to close cooperation between the countries. Mr Macron and Mrs May were served dressed crab followed by duck breast at the Michelin starred pub, with the meals prepared by last year's Masterchef: The Professionals winner Craig Johnson.
