ONE is the perfectly put-together darling of the British royal family - the other, the rarely-glimpsed spouse of the world's most elusive tyrant. But the Duchess of Cambridge has more in common with Kim Jong-uns's wife Ri Sol-ju than you might think. The North Korean tyrant's right-hand woman is shrouded in mystery. Despite rumours she is in her late 20s and has three children, her age, wedding date and former occupation are all virtually unknown. The secrets of her wardrobe, however, are less carefully guarded. The former singer follows in 36-year-old Kate’s elegant, classic style - with a wardrobe thought to burst with Dior, Chanel and Red Valentino but tempered by high-street pieces.

The leaders of North and South Korea have agreed to meet face-to-face on 27 April in the hope of putting an end to diplomatic tensions. The summit between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in comes after months of bitter dispute between the neighbouring states over the former's refusal to abandon nuclear testing in the face of international sanctions.
