By any standards, it was a remarkable guest list.

There was American royalty in the shape of Donald ’s daughter Ivanka and her billionaire White House ‘special adviser’ husband Jared Kushner.

Next came royalty with pop chart-topper Katy Perry on the arm of her Pirates Of The Caribbean actor fiance Orlando Bloom.

But it was the arrival of the bride’s best friend, to audible gasps from the crowd, that proved that this was undoubtedly the of the year.

As the Duchess of Sussex, wearing a stunning £9,000 sheer black Valentino gown, arrived with Prince Harry to celebrate designer Misha Nonoo’s this weekend to American oil tycoon Michael Hess, it marked the crowning triumph of the remarkable social rise of the bride to the very pinnacle of society on both sides of the Atlantic.

But who on earth is Misha Nonoo? And how did a 33-year-old whose mother was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and who, by her own admission, was ‘struggling’ both personally and professionally just three years ago, manage to pull off what one former associate quipped was ‘the greatest spectacle has seen since the return of Caesar.’

Harry and Meghan were smuggled out of a side entrance at 12.45am yesterday with security guards blocking photographers as they climbed into a people-carrier with blacked-out windows.

The couple were given the full VIP treatment by the Italians, with a police escort to Leonardo da Vinci airport and use of a special ‘ceremonial’ terminal usually reserved for visiting heads of state.
