Besotted Prince Harry CANNOT let go of Meghan Markle’s hand in touching Royal Ascot snap
Prince Harry could not let go of his new wife Meghan Markle’s hand as the Duchess of Sussex made her debut at the Royal Ascot races yesterday with her new husband.
The pair celebrated their one month wedding anniversary yesterday as they joined the Queen at races in Berkshire.
Meghan and Harry appeared attached at the hip as they stayed close together through the day.
In one touching picture from the day, Harry was so besotted that he was unable to let go of Meghan’s hand as went to shake the hands of a winner.
The newlyweds presented the winning trophy for the 4.20pm race, the St James’ Palace Stakes.

Meghan beamed as jockey Frankie Dettori, who won the race with horse Without Parole, proudly held up his trophy.
Other pictures from Ascot’s first day show Meghan with her arm looped through Harry’s and the pair holding hands after they arrived by carriage to the spectacular event.
The Duke of Sussex also appeared to be showing his wife the ropes as he showed her the programme and was later photographed explaining how the presentation process works.
Meghan looked stunning in a stylish monochrome outfit by her favourite designer, Givenchy, teamed with a Philip Treacy hat, while Harry was dressed in black morning suit with a sky blue waistcoat and top hat.
Thousands of racegoers cheered and applauded from the stands as the Queen’s carriage led the procession to mark the start of Ascot at 2pm.
The beaming Duchess and her new husband were next with the Earl and Countess of Wessex, who waved as they travelled past the packed stands on their way to the royal box.
Meghan and Harry received a rapturous welcome from Royal Ascot as the Duchess enjoyed the sights and sounds of the quintessential English summer event – a day at the races.
Also in attendance was Princess Anne, who also became a grandmother for the fourth time yesterday, and Prince Andrew who rode in the carriage with their mother, the Queen.
Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie in another carriage.
The Queen’s decision to invite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shows Meghan has well and truly been welcomed into the Firm.
And it comes just days after Meghan was pictured getting on famously with her new grandmother-in-law during a full day of public engagements in Cheshire.
