Image caption Many of the Sundays go big on the royal wedding, not least Scotland on Sunday, which labels the happy couple "The Dumbartons". Prince Harry and his new wife were gifted the Scottish titles of the Earl and Countess of Dumbarton by the Queen on their big day.

Image caption "There is power in love," the American pastor, Bishop Michael Curry, told the congregation in St George's Chapel, Windsor, in a highly-animated speech which was one of the highlights of the wedding ceremony. The Sunday Times Scotland said his "volcanic wedding sermon made Britain's latest royal extravaganza quite unlike any before it".

Image caption The weekend edition of the i newspaper splashes with the royal kiss and dedicates 27 pages to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day. Inside, Cahal Milmo describes it as a "thoroughly modern wedding", despite the pomp and ceremony associated with such an occasion. "What was unveiled in the chapel of Windsor Castle, redoubt of British monarchy and tradition for a millennium, was a subtly - at times spectacularly - different way of doing the royal thing," he wrote.

Image caption In a bumper souvenir edition of the Scottish Sunday Express, the paper reports that Sir Elton John performed for the royal newly-weds during a lunchtime reception. The musician was in attendance at the ceremony in Windsor with his husband, David Furnish.

Image caption In the Scottish Mail on Sunday, Sarah Oliver describes it as "a royal wedding quite unlike any other". She pointed to the influence of Meghan Markle's family on the ceremony, despite there being only one close relative - her mother, Doria Ragland - in attendance. The combination of traditional hymns and readings with a gospel choir singing Stand By Me and Bishop Curry's sermon, ensured the wedding was "one which said the bride's heritage was every bit the equal of the groom's", she added.

Image caption The Sunday Mail's Lorna Hughes said Prince Harry and his new wife "ripped up the royal rulebook to tie the knot in a romantic revolution". Hollywood royalty like George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey sat in the congregation alongside "real royalty" - and even Prince Harry's ex-girlfriends were invited. The couple pulled off what some thought was impossible, the paper adds, "a day filled with love, laughter and fun".

Image caption The Sunday Post also features images from the royal wedding, but it leads with claims that the creation of a new Scottish currency will be at the centre of a new blueprint for independence. Nicola Sturgeon will publish the SNP's Economic Growth Commission report on Friday, which will detail "economic building blocks" for an independent Scotland.

Image caption The Sunday Herald is leading with a call to improve school meals and create a culture of healthy eating among children in Scotland. Obesity Action Scotland says that, as well as serving better food, set meals could be separated from playtime and children encouraged to learn about food and enjoy the social experience "rather than simply refuelling as quickly as possible".
