Truly beautiful

With Meghan Markle apparently days away from giving birth to her first child (rumour has it that her due date is actually today, 28 April, eeek), you could probably forgive her and husband Prince Harry for missing the wedding of close friends Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre.

But that doesn't mean Meghan didn't make it her mission to send the happy couple a pretty impressive wedding gift. Seriously, where on earth can we find a friend like her, she covers all bases?

According to reports in the Mail On Sunday, the royal couple apparently sent a piece of art by the Connor Brothers, worth a cool £7,000. The artwork features the Dr Zuess quote 'Why Fit In When You Were Born To Stand Out'.

Very fitting.

British actor Idris and Canadian model Sabrina surprised us all when they shared snaps of their lavish five-star 'festival themed' wedding in the luxurious Ksar Char Bagh in Marrakech over the weekend.

Shared via British Vogue, the newlyweds looked the picture of happiness as they posed for pictures after the nuptials.

Sabrina chose a classical white off-the-shoulder, A-line gown custom-made by American designer Vera Wang, whereas dapper Idris wore a custom Ozwald Boateng tailored suit.

The couple got engaged last February after Elba dropped to one knee during a screening of his film Yardie at the Rio Cinema in Dalston, east London.

Rio Cinema were the first to share the news on their very own Twitter account, writing, "Another riocinema first! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film."
