SLIMLINE Meghan Markle has had to have her wedding dress altered several times after losing a “significant amount” of weight ahead of next month’s nuptials. The actress, 36, has needed multiple fittings with designers Ralph and Russo after asking them for an “ornate and intricate” gown costing up to £40,000.

Awkward! Footage has emerged of Meghan Markle dancing on stage to a saucy Madonna hit when she was just eight years old. The future royal bride was taking part in one of her first school performances. Dressed in 1920s-style flapper dress, Meghan joins pals for the annual talent show at the Hollywood Little Red School House. They dance around to the risqué 1990 song Hank Panky from hit movie Dick Tracy starring Madonna and her then boyfriend Warren Beatty – in which she repeatedly invites him to spank her. The video was shot by the parents of Meghan’s childhood friend Ninaki Priddy, 37, now a jewellery maker. “Dressing up like that was a lot of fun for us,” she said. “I remember our mums having to make our dresses. “I think we were all excited about it, it was fun and silly.” But looking back now, she admits she is a bit surprised at the choice of song. “It was so cheeky and tawdry for fourth graders.
