In a seeming nod to equality, Ms Markle’s initial comes first in this case, whereas in most other pieces, it is Harry’s.

The range includes two other embroidered decorations, also costing £25 each – a cream “H” and “M” heart, and wedding bells, also featuring the stars and stripes and the Union flag, and an “M” and “H”.
