The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave the actor, 46, and his new wife Sabrina Dhowre, 30, an impressive piece of artwork worth £7,000.

BACK TO SLIDE

It was revealed yesterday that the couple had got married earlier this week during three days of lavish celebrations in Marrakesh, Morocco.

According to the Mail On Sunday, the newlyweds had been sent a piece by the Connor Brothers as a wedding present from their royal friends.

The stunning picture – by the British artists behind the trendy pseudonym, James Golding and Mike Snelle – is of a 1950s-style book cover of a glamorous, blonde woman.

Perhaps fittingly for the successful Luther star and rumoured future Bond lead, it is emblazoned with the words: "Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"

Last year, the Connor Brothers shared an image of the same artwork on their Instagram.

They revealed that the quote was from children's author Dr Seuss.

NEW PRINT RELEASE TODAY - Following our visit from amazing nine year old artist Belle Curran last week we have just released this image as a print. Belle suffers from interstitial lung disease. and needs a lung transplant. She is raising awareness about organ donation, and funds for the various charities that have helped her. The print is from a limited edition of 12, and all of the proceeds will be going to the charities that have supported Belle. The quote we have chosen comes from the children's author Dr Seuss. We would be grateful for anyone who follows the link in our bio, and makes a donation. The print is available now through our website. please note that the prints will take up to 21 days for delivery

When they first arrived on the art scene, the duo claimed to be Missouri-born twins who had been raised in an extremist Christian cult.

Their canvases humorously adapt famous book covers, with authors from Shakespeare to Hunter S. Thompson getting their clever satirical treatment.

Interestingly, since their backstory was revealed to be false they have become hugely successful – and can now count royalty among their fans.

Harry and Meghan are believed to be at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor awaiting the arrival of their firstborn.

While they missed out on joining 150 other guests at the luxurious Ksar Char Bagh hotel where Sabrina, a former Miss Vancouver, walked down the aisle in a stunning Vera Wang dress, the parents-to-be posted several adorable photos of themselves with kids to mark the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth.
