Forget the World Cup, royal-watching remains the ultimate spectator sport and now we have a home fixture - the arrival this week of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first trip abroad as a married couple will be a hoot for fashionistas who will be captivated not by what the royal couple actually say but, rather, what Meghan wears.

And, of course, there may have to be some late changes to the kit before kick-off. I'm sure the original plan was a honeymoon trip trousseau, based around Ireland's usual temperate July weather rather than a heatwave. Thankfully any lingering threat that tweed may have been involved has passed.
