Sutton said: “There were four Prince Harry lookalikes and five Meghan lookalikes selected to go to London to have a weekend doing tasks and challenges to see who best resembled the soon-to-be-married couple.”

Judges included Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: Inside the Story, and lookalike expert Susan Scott.

The winning couple, Rhys Whittock from the UK and teacher Inmaculada Santisteban Serrano from Spain impressed the panel with their regal wave, romantic wedding proposal and bridal bouquet throw.
