The future of the BiFab marine engineering yard at Burntisland is the main story in the Fife edition of The Courier - although there is also space on the front page for a picture of Meghan in tartan surrounded by Union flags.

Meghan is also pictured in The Times, but it leads with the scandal surrounding sexual exploitation by Oxfam employees.

The Scottish edition of the Daily Telegraph manages to squeeze Harry into its Meghan picture, and leads on the thoughts of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on how Brexit might work out.

"Meghan (Oh and Harry too) wows Scotland in "tartan style" claims the Scottish Daily Mail.

The i newspaper is looking at the tactics of the foreign secretary, saying he is fighting attempts to "derail" Brexit.

The Scottish Daily Express has the Royal couple, of course, but its lead report is on concerns that a drug used on pregnant women may have caused birth defects.
