Meghan Markle is struggling to settle into the' extraordinarily arcane and unusual world' of the Royal Family, an expert has claimed. Author Penny Junor says the mum-to-be is still getting used to the huge change from a independent American actress to the Duchess of Sussex.

Perched on a tree branch and clad in jeans, this year's Christmas card photograph of the Cambridges could not be more different to that of the Norwegian royal family's very formal portrait. Although there are smiles all round for both families, the Cambridges delighted fans this year with a more casual look, while Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway and Crown Princess Mette-Marit once again opted for a more traditional picture. The very different Christmas card photos of the two families give a fascinating glimpse into their lives. With the backdrop of a resplendent Christmas tree in one of the opulent rooms of the royal palace in Oslo, Mette-Marit, 45, is joined by husband and heir-to-the-throne Haakon, 45.
