Keep scrolling to learn the 17 things you (and the new Duchess of Sussex) need to know about the royal family.

Royal Ascot has been attended by many celebrities and royals over the past few days, with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also making an appearance earlier in the week.

Princess Diana reportedly referred to the Queen as "Mama" during the last decade of her life.

"Meghan was often quite coy and giggly, using facial cut-offs and the clutch bag barrier rituals to suggest she was made quite shy by her happiness but then this gesture which is hugely powerful and significant in terms of their relationship", she said of a moment when Markle placed her hand on Harry's back.

Speaking to BBC cameras at the time, the 33-year-old royal said: "Not now, no". Saying in their infamous engagement interview: "Hopefully we'll start a family in the near future".

Cast members Emilia Clarke - Daenerys Targaryen - and Peter Dinklage , who plays Tyrion Lannister, arrived in Aberdeen on Friday. The couple, both aged 31, met in 2012 when they played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in the TV drama.


Meghan's dad, Thomas Markle, recently claimed on Good Morning Britain that his daughter had wanted to be a mum "for a long time", leading him to think they'll have kids together soon.

Body language expert Judi James, an industry leader in communication, told how the Queen appeared "completely confident" in Meghan's ability. While she wasn't there in person to share in the fun, proud mum Sarah Ferguson tweeted a picture of her daughters looking lovely as they arrived by at the racecourse by horse drawn carriage.

"There's got to be a child in them".

In fact in photos of the Royals at the Ascot Races, taking place today in England, Meghan is seen with a belt around her waist and at this point would be showing just a little - but you can see that she definitely isn't.
