  • [Top Story]Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding: All the details for tomorrow's big day05/18 15:10

    Follow live updates on tomorrow's royal wedding here What time are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting married? Full royal wedding schedule and timings Royal wedding guest list: Here's who's received an invite How to watch the royal wedding tomorrow Who has designed Meghan Markle's wedding dress? Every runner and rider decoded The hotly anticipated Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is tomorrow, Saturday 19 May. However a last-minute setback has called the couple's plans into confusion, as Ms Markle's father Thomas announced via US celebrity website TMZ that he is due to have an operation and will not attend the ceremony on Saturday. Yet the wheels for the wedding are still in motion, with the couple promising a wedding focused on fun, joy and a chance to celebrate with the public. So what's in store for the couple – and how are the final plans affected by this week's changes? Here are all the latest updates about 2018's wedding of the year. Meghan Markle's family: the latest news Meghan Markle has confirmed her father Thomas Markle will not be attending her wedding to Prince Harry, saying she hopes he can be given the "space he needs to focus on his health".  In a statement issued through Kensington Palace, Meghan Markle said: "Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. "I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday." Thomas Markle Snr had been intending to travel from his Mexico home to the UK to meet his future son-in-law for the first time, as well as the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. He was also intending to walk Ms Markle down the aisle on Saturday, meeting her at the chapel's west door after her drive to the ceremony with her mother. Meet the Markles But after disclosures about his alleged dealings with the paparazzi and reports he suffered a heart attack earlier this month, the 73-year-old said on Monday he would avoid the ceremony for fear of embarrassing his daughter. The Mail On Sunday newspaper reported the story at the weekend claiming the images were staged and published CCTV footage stills of the US actress' father in the internet cafe with a photographer. The pictures were published earlier this month in a number of newspapers and news websites showing Mr Markle in a series of royal wedding related activities, apparently unaware he was being snapped. Mr Markle was pictured being measured for what was thought to be his wedding suit, looking at screen pictures of Ms Markle and Harry while in an internet cafe, and reading a picture book about Britain while having a coffee. Royal wedding countdown in pictures as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's preparations begin Ms Markle's half-sister Samantha Markle attempted to shoulder some of the blame when she earlier tweeted it was her idea for Mr Markle to pose for what she described as "positive photos" in a bid to combat his "bad" portrayal in the press, but stated it was not done for money. A Kensington Palace said it was a "deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding" and called for "understanding and respect" to be extended to Mr Markle. It would not comment further. However, on Tuesday he raised hopes of attending after all by saying his daughter had been in touch to reassure him, and was prepared to fly to Britain if his medical condition allowed. Mr Markle is reported to have said: “I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive for Wedding rehearsals today in Windsor Credit: Karwai Tang/Karwai Tang But within hours he appeared to change his plans for a third time, claiming he required heart surgery after falling unwell again. He told celebrity news site TMZ: "They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed." On Wednesday night the site reported that Thomas Markle had been in touch to say his heart surgery had been completed, while Ms Grant accused Kensington Palace of abandoning him. The health ministry in Baja California state, where he lives,  said on Thursday that Mr Markle was diagnosed with heart problems in Mexico earlier this month but had refused to undergo surgery. Mr Markle went to Rosarito's Hospital de Playas early in the morning on May 3 complaining of "heart pain," the ministry said. According to the health ministry statement, days before his surgery on Wednesday he arrived at the Mexican hospital having experienced hours of discomfort "without any physical exertion." He underwent testing and received pain medication, before being diagnosed with heart disease, the statement added. However, Markle rejected any treatment at the time following the diagnosis and declined to be transported to his Rosarito home. Thomas Markle Snr: How Meghan Markle's father set her on a path to stardom The gossip site also claimed Ms Grant had suffered a broken ankle and fractured knee in what her boyfriend described as a "paparazzi confrontation" on a road in Florida.   It has been confirmed that Prince Charles will walk Ms Markle down the aisle. She will walk the first half of the St George's Chapel aisle alone, surrounded by young page boys and bridesmaids but without anyone by her side. At the Quire, which effectively marks the second half of the aisle, Ms Markle will be met by the Prince of Wales, her future father-in-law, who will take her arm for the final steps. The ceremony will omit the traditional moment of "giving away", where the presiding Archbishop asks: "Who giveth this woman to be married to this man?" Ms Markle is understood to have asked the Prince of Wales to accompany her after her father, Thomas Markle, told her he was unable to fly to the UK.  Meghan Markle and Doria Ragland  Credit: Getty Meanwhile, other members of Ms Markle's family have arrived in London - despite reportedly not receiving an invite to the wedding. Tracy Dooley – who was married to Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr – was pictured at Heathrow Airport with her sons, Tyler, 25, and Thomas, 26 on Monday. Ms Dooley, who has admitted she has not seen Ms Markle for 20 years, has previously told ITV's Good Morning Britain she had not received an invitation to the ceremony at Windsor Castle on Saturday. Yet she is expected to cover the event for an American broadcasting network and said she "will be in the front row cheering them on" in Windsor. Thomas Markle Jr, who not long ago issued an open letter urging Prince Harry to call off the wedding, appeared in Windsor, declaring his estranged half sister the “perfect modern princess”. Days until the Royal Wedding When is the wedding and who is planning it? The wedding is this weekend - Saturday, May 19 - at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened. It is said to have become a "very special place" for the couple in their relationship so far.  The Lord Chamberlain's Office at Buckingham Palace is responsible for organising royal weddings, but the Prince and Ms Markle are leading the show. However, under the guidance of Harry's private secretary, Edward Lane Fox, the Lord Chamberlain's Office is dealing with the ceremonial aspects of the day. The service will begin at 12pm. The public will have the opportunity to watch the action from their sofas with several broadcasters showing the ceremony live. Read more about how to watch the wedding here. Copy of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: The story of their relationship, in pictures Invitations - who is on the guest list? Invitations have been posted to 600 lucky guests, with a select 200 close friends invited to an after party at Frogmore House, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.  The couple do not have an official list of political leaders on the guest list, which means neither Prime Minister Theresa May or US President Donald Trump will be going, and former US President Barack Obama has also missed out.  Expect to see many members of the Royal family, Ms Markle's family (apart from her father, Thomas Markle Snr), famous faces from the cast of Suits, conservationists, sportsmen and women and charity heads closest to the couple’s hearts. Those invited include Dave Henson, the former Team GB captain at the Invictus Games, the head of a tiny overlooked Welsh charity and the Botswanan friends so discreet even they do not know which others in their set are going. Some members of the public have received an invitation to wait in the grounds outside the chapel to watch the bride and groom and their wedding guests arrive and leave. As well a dress code, the guest list also reportedly includes 'critical guidance'for the big day. The instructions ban cameras and bulky bags, adding that guests will be asked to "surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture". They further specify that guests should not wear medals, in a list of suggestions about accessories that includes: "No swords."

Die-stamped in gold and then burnished, the invitation features The Three Feather Badge of The Prince of Wales. They also reveal that the dress code is Uniform, Morning Coat or Lounge Suit, or Day Dress with Hat. Sir Elton John will entertain guests at Windsor Castle, TMZ reported, but it is unclear whether he will play at the church ceremony or at the reception later.. The Spice Girls are also understood to be attending. Read more about who is on the guest list here. Who is the best man? The Duke of Cambridge will be Harry's best man, missing the FA Cup final to be at his brother's side. The Duke, who has always been the front-runner for the supporting role at the May wedding, is "honoured" to have been asked, Kensington Palace said. Prince William and Prince Harry in borrowed policemen outfits Credit: PA Who are the bridesmaids and pageboys? Kensington Palace has announced that Ms Markle will have no adult bridesmaids 'because she's unable to choose between her friends', and will instead be surrounded by children as page boys, bridesmaids and flower girls. On Wednesday, it was announced the bridesmaids are Princess Charlotte, Florence van Custem, Remi Litt, Rylan Litt, Ivy Mulroney and Zalie Warren. The pageboys are Prince George, Jasper Dyer, Brian Mulroney and John Mulroney. Royal siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte already know the score - they performed those roles at the wedding of Pippa Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister, to James Matthews in May last year.   Prince Harry has paid tribute to former mentor and close friend Mark Dyer by requesting his son Jasper as a pageboy, while Ms Markle has publicly recognised one of her best friends, stylist Jessica Mulroney, by choosing her twin sons to take part in the wedding. Read more about the pageboys and bridesmaids here. The dress - all bets are off Bookmakers suspended betting on the designer of Ms Markle's wedding dress in March when British couture company Ralph & Russo pulled ahead to become 1/3 favourites. The label, helmed by Australians Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo (a couple in real life) have shot to prominence after a string of celebrity endorsements. In 2014, Angelina Jolie wore the label to Buckingham Palace to receive an honorary damehood, in 2016 Gwyneth Paltrow to the Oscars. Add to that list of fans Beyonce, Rihanna and, finally, Meghan Markle herself, who chose a £56,000 embellished couture gown for the official photos taken to mark her engagement to Prince Harry. Before betting was suspended, London-based designer Erdem was at 3/1.  Ms Markle's stylist and close friend Ms Mulroney runs a bridal store in Toronto was said to have helped the bride choose her gown. Read more about Ralph and Russo here. Prince Harry's outfit Prince Harry will wear the ceremonial uniform of the Royal Marines,the regiment believes. The Prince will wear the uniform as a mark of respect to the regiment he took over as Captain General from his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. Men from the regiment will line the route from St George’s Chapel, at Windsor Castle, to provide a ceremonial guard of honour. Palace officials will not confirm what the Prince is to wear for his wedding to Ms Markle, but soldiers of the Royal Marines who have volunteered to take part understand he will be wearing the same ceremonial regalia, or ‘Blues’, as them on the day. Other options include the uniform of the Household Cavalry, where Prince Harry served with the Blues and Royals, or morning dress. Read more on Prince Harry's outfit here A very traditional ceremony  The couple will be make their vows at St George's Chapel, which last hosted a royal wedding in May 2008 when Peter Phillips - son of The Princess Royal - married Autumn Kelly.  The traditional ceremony will be conducted by The Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner while the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows. Pioneering American bishop, the Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry, from Chicago, Illinois, has been invited to deliver the address as the couple strive to reflect their transatlantic relationship amid the tradition of St George's Chapel. Bishop Curry, who has been praised for his "infectious laughter and self-deprecating humour", is the first African-American bishop to have served as the Episcopal Church's presiding bishop, a role he has held since November 2015. The music will also have an American influence according to Christopher Warren-Green, who will conduct musicians on the day. Miss Markle, who was a UN women's advocate, is unlikely to opt to obey the prince. The couple will probably choose the Series One (1966) Book of Common Prayer ceremony, just as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did, which allows the bride to drop "obey him" and "serve him" from the religious proceedings. The regiments Prince Harry served with in Afghanistan will a have a “special place” during the ceremony. The 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, where the prince served as an Apache Pilot in Helmand Province will be represented, as well as The Royal Gurkha Rifles, his comrades in Afghanistan in 2007, and RAF Honington, where he is Honorary Air Commandant. Household Cavalry troopers will line the staircase at St George's Chapel, while streets within the precincts of the castle will be lined by members of the Windsor Castle Guard from 1st Battalion Irish Guards, and by Armed Forces personnel from the Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving, which has the Prince as Commodore-in-Chief, and the Royal Marines, where he is Captain General. Read more about St George's Chapel here. WATCH: How Diana, the in-laws and Prince Louis will fit into the Royal Wedding Don't miss the procession After the ceremony, among the first people to congratulate the couple will be some of the 2,640 charity workers, community champions and local school children who are being invited to watch the wedding from inside the walls of Windsor Castle.  Then at 1pm, the newlyweds will undertake a two mile tour of Windsor in an Ascot Landau carriage, greeting well-wishers, which is expected to take 25 minutes. It's the same carriage the prince used in the procession at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton,when he was surrounded by small bridesmaids and page boys. The couple will leave Windsor Castle by carriage via Castle Hill, travelling along the High Street and through Windsor Town before returning along the Long Walk for the first reception at St George's Hall. Read more about the procession here. Wedding at Windsor Castle Not one, but two receptions Following the carriage ride, the congregation will await the happy couple in St George's Hall, for the first of two receptions. The first, more formal afternoon reception for some 600 guests, will be hosted by the Queen. The 180-ft long room, traditionally used for state banquets, seats up to 162 people and was redesigned in a modern Gothic style – with walls lined with suits of armour – following the fire at the castle in 1992. Fashionable 'bowl food' will be served at the standing-only reception. Made with seasonal ingredients grown on the Crown Estates, the food is intended to be eaten standing up, allowing guests to mingle freely in St George’s Hall. The food is likely to be accompanied by champagne and wine from the extensive Royal cellars, and soft drinks. The second evening reception, for 200 close friends and family, will be thrown at Frogmore House by the Prince of Wales. Standing about half a mile south of Windsor Castle in Windsor Home Park, Frogmore House has been a Royal Residence since 1792. It is where Harry and Ms Markle posed for their official engagement photos in November. The location of the venue - away from the Castle - will offer the pair privacy as they celebrate with friends and family. Read more about the food here. Wedding cake The couple have asked Claire Ptak, an east London pastry chef, to make an organic lemon and elderflower wedding cake incorporating "the bright flavours of spring", according to Kensington Palace. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers. It is believed to be the first time a Royal couple have eschewed tradition by not serving a fruit cake to their wedding guests. Claire Ptak, Owner of Violet Bakery in Hackney, east London puts finishing touches on the cake for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Credit: Getty The "ethereal" tasting wedding cake will be displayed in a special installation, Ptak revealed. The baker said the layered lemon and elderflower cake - in three parts of varying sizes - would be presented in a non-traditional way. The final design will be unveiled on the big day although Meghan and Harry are in on the plans. "You'll have to wait and see on the day. It's an installation of the way that we're putting it out. It's the last thing that we'll reveal. It's a non-traditional layout," Ms Ptak said. "It's a slight shift from tradition." The chef, who owns the small, trendy Violet Bakery in east London, has been working with her team of six bakers full time for five days in the large kitchens of Buckingham Palace. Claire Ptak, owner of Violet Bakery, took five days to make the wedding cake  Credit: AP She described the flavour of the cake as being a balance of sweet and tart, combined with "ethereal" elderflower. The cake, which is being decorated on the outside with a white, elderflower swiss meringue buttercream, is made of layered lemon sponge, drizzled with an elderflower syrup to a recipe specially created for the couple. The layers are sandwiched with buttercream and lemon curd. Some 200 Amalfi lemons are being used in the recipe, as well as 10 bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial made using elderflower from the Queen's Sandringham estate, 20kgs of butter, 20 kgs of flour, 20kgs of sugar and 500 organic eggs from Suffolk. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose Fiona Cairns to make their 2011 wedding cake, a traditional multi-layered fruit cake with a floral design. Read more about the wedding cake here. Flowers The couple have chosen high society florist Philippa Craddock to design their day, using seasonal plants and flowers from the Crown Estates and Royal Parks chosen particularly for their pollinator-friendly properties. Aisles, pews, tables and halls will be lined with plants from wildflower meadows, picked to “provide a great habitat for bees and help to nurture and sustain entire ecosystems by promoting a healthy and biodiverse environment”, Kensington Palace said. Ms Craddock has been named “Queen of London florists” by British Vogue and “a floral mastermind” by Tatler. On Wednesday Ms Craddock revealed the the flower arrangements will have royal roots. The London florist said that silver birch and English oak from nearby Windsor Great Park will be a part of the greenery adorning the scenery. Windsor Great Park is owned by the royal family and Prince Philip, holds the title of park ranger. William the Conqueror hunted there in the 11th century when the park was a forest.  Roses, foxgloves and Ms Markle's reported favourite flowers peonies will also will be in the arrangements. "There are moments where I've focused on it being another commission, so it's like working with any one of our couples, and of course you take a step back and you just realise the enormity of it," Ms Craddock said. "It's a huge occasion and we're just hugely privileged." Read more about the wedding florist here. Florist Philippa Craddock Credit: Dominic Lipinski/PA Wire Speeches The prince will be putting pen to paper to write his speech for their reception. But Ms Markle, who is an accomplished public speaker, is expected to break with tradition and deliver her own as well, offering “affectionate” praise of her new husband, thanks to the Queen and a few suitable jokes. The former actress, is “ready” to speak at the reception, should her father choose to avoid the limelight, the Sunday Times reported earlier this year. Mr Markle, an award-winning Hollywood writing director who now lives a quiet life in Mexico, was expected to walk Ms Markle down the aisle before changing his plans to attend. At the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, reception speeches included words from best man Prince Harry, the groom’s father the Prince of Wales and Michael Middleton, who affectionately described how he knew his daughter’s relationship was serious when her boyfriend landed a helicopter in his garden. WATCH: Meghan Markle's high school hosts Royal Wedding good luck party The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex?  Ms Markle will become an HRH and a senior royal after marrying Prince Harry. She is also expected to become a duchess, as Kate Middleton did when she became the Duchess of Cambridge after saying her vows in 2011. By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day, and the vacant title Duke of Sussex is regarded as the most likely choice for the Prince, meaning Ms Markle would become HRH The Duchess of Sussex. Like Prince Harry, the previous Duke of Sussex lived at Kensington Palace, and he also married for love, rather than choosing brides who fitted the traditional royal mould. Read more about royal titles here. Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, outside Westminster Abbey on their wedding day in 2011 Credit: AP Photo/Martin Meissner Will there be a bank holiday? The wedding is on a Saturday, so there will be no new bank holiday. Although the public were given a day off to celebrate the weddings of Prince Charles to Diana Spencer in 1981, Prince William to Catherine Middleton in 2011, and Princess Anne to Mark Phillips in 1973, no such national holidays were awarded for Prince Andrew or Prince Edward. However, it's not all bad news because pubs and bars will be allowed to do away with the usual curbs on opening hours on the wedding weekend.  Ministers have extended licensing hours across Britain to allow venues to remain open until 1am on Friday and Saturday - which is also the day of the FA Cup final. There will also be lots of street parties planned across the UK. For information about how to host your own, click here. Souvenirs and wedding china The royal bride and groom-to-be have approved a range of commemorative china to celebrate their nuptials.  The exclusive design in white and cornflower blue has a monogram of the couple's initials at its centre, tied together with white ribbons and surmounted by the coronet of Prince Harry.  The decorative border of each piece is inspired by the ironwork of the 13th-century Gilebertus door of St George's Chapel and each is finished with 22-carat gold. The Royal Collection Trust range, which is made in Stoke-on-Trent, includes a decorative miniature coffee mug, coffee mug, pillbox, tankard and plate.  The Royal wedding souvenir phenomenon dates back to Queen Victoria’s wedding to Prince Albert in 1840, linked to the rise of mass production in Victorian Britain. It remains a thriving industry today, with an estimated £222 million spent on memorabilia in the run-up to the 2011 royal wedding, according to the Centre for Retail Research. And finally... the honeymoon Prince Harry and Ms Markle will delay their honeymoon to go straight back to work in the week after their wedding, scheduling their first public engagement as a married couple just days later. The couple will go on honeymoon privately later this year, before a “busy” autumn including a trip to Sydney for the Invictus Games. But where will they go? Namibia has pulled ahead as the odds-on favourite. The southern African nation is best known among travellers for the enormous Sossusvlei sand dunes of the the Namib Desert, but reports suggest that the couple are looking instead at a safari trip to Hoanib Valley Camp in the country's north west. Botswana, where they holidayed in the early days of their whirlwind relationship, is also a good bet, (Ms Markle's engagement ring features diamonds from Diana's personal collection, and a stone from Botswana), but wherever they go, the newlyweds will be looking for seclusion away from the limelight as they start their married life together. Other possible destinations could include Tuscany, Hawaii, Turkey and the Philippines. Read more about the honeymoon options here.

A post shared by Telegraph Royals (@telegraphroyals) on May 18, 2018 at 6:39am PDT 2:29PM Watch the route Harry and Meghan will take on their carriage procession Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding schedule will see them undertake a tour of Windsor immediately after their nuptials, to greet well-wishers who are expected to turn out from all over the world to see them. This video posted on Twitter by Kensington Palace shows the route they will take. As preparations for the Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle continue in Windsor, join us for a look at the route the newlyweds will take in a Carriage Procession following the Wedding Ceremony.#RoyalWeddingpic.twitter.com/YnFQVhxxti— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) May 18, 2018 Here is everything you need to know about how to watch the procession and where to stand in Windsor. 2:02PM Ring of steel around Windsor Castle amid massive security operation Police will effectively create a ring of steel around Windsor Castle as part of a massive security operation for the royal wedding. The wedding on Saturday is one of the largest public events policed by Thames Valley and in the run-up to the big day officers have been patrolling Windsor, including armed officers dog handlers and even mounted police. Metal barriers have been put up in the Berkshire town to deter attackers from using vehicles, like the terrorist atrocities committed on London and Westminster Bridges. On Friday, police were seen manning the barricades outside the castle, and sniffer dogs were out as checks continued before Saturday's ceremony.

But as well as the visible security arrangements, officers will also be engaged in covert operations. Armed police officers patrol near The Prince Harry pub in Windsor Credit: TOLGA AKMEN /AFP With the US actress a big draw to both British and American fans, huge crowds are expected and the newlyweds' carriage ride route may be closed to latecomers if the predicted 100,000 revellers become a safety issue. If this proves to be the case, TVP, in consultation with others like Network Rail and British Transport Police, could also order trains not to stop at Windsor's two stations. Almost every TVP officer will be on duty on Saturday, working right across the force's area. Video: Aerial views of Windsor on Friday As part of the security arrangements, drones have been banned from flying over the Windsor Castle estate on Friday and Saturday, and aircraft are restricted from flying below 2,500ft. The security operation for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cost police more than £6 million, figures revealed in April. Nearly £3 million was spent on overtime costs alone, with hundreds of officers drafted in to help police the crowds watching the event in London in 2011. But the cost of Harry and Ms Markle's wedding cannot yet be confirmed. 1:31PM 'Get your flag here, cheapest flags in Windsor' There is a jovial mood on the packed streets of Windsor, reports Victoria Ward. Members of the public, mobile phone cameras aloft, are already lining the streets and flocking towards the castle. Flag and selfie stick sellers are doing a roaring trade: “Get your flag here, cheapest flags in Windsor.” Many have been camped out since Tuesday, such is the desire to be a part of this event and catch a glimpse of the happy couple. There is a heavy police and security presence and so far, things on the streets at least, appear to be running smoothly.

Here's how to make your own! After reports that stores across Britain are running out of bunting, we've pulled together a handy guide on how you can make your own. Royal wedding | How to make your own bunting 12:32PM Town crier in full voice as he prepares to greet 150,000 watchers The official town crier for Windsor is looking forward to his role of greeting visitors to the town on the royal wedding day - all 150,000 of them. Chris Brown, 49, has been stopped on the packed footpaths of the town by people eager to have their picture taken with him, decked out in his ceremonial garb. Ringing his bell, the town crier proclaimed his congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with their wedding now just hours away. "The Mayor has asked me to be here to welcome the guests, 150,000-odd of them. I'm very excited, we haven't had an event of this size in town before as far as I can see. "We've had huge events, we had the Queen's birthday celebrations, the Jubilee but this I think is the biggest we've ever had," he said.

He said: "Quite frankly an English summer's day - no problem at all!" 12:19PM Markle & Sparkle: Windsor M&S store rebrands Royal wedding fever has well and truly hit Windsor - including the town's branch of Marks and Spencer, which unveiled a rebrand on Friday morning...

Lisa Rutherford, buyer at John Lewis, said: "Over the past week sales of our royal wedding party decorations, napkins, plates and cups have increased 279 per cent on the previous week. "In total we expect to sell over 22,000 royal wedding-related products from china mugs to party napkins and tea towels." 12:14PM Wedding confetti 'poses security risk', police warn The police force in charge of security for the royal wedding has urged well-wishers in Windsor not to throw confetti. Thames Valley said the tradition posed a "potential security risk" during the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's carriage procession but was also a "bit of a pain to clean up". �� Confetti at the #RoyalWedding �� Please do not throw confetti or any other items at any time during the day, particularly during the procession. It poses a potential security risk and it's a bit of a pain to clean up! �� We hope everyone enjoys the day �� pic.twitter.com/wrMlIe8Hfy— Thames Valley Police (@ThamesVP) May 18, 2018 Crowds in central London threw confetti during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding day in 2011. Prince William and Prince Harry also showered their father Prince of Wales and stepmother the Duchess of Cornwall with confetti as the newlyweds left Windsor Castle on the evening of their wedding in 2005. The brothers had also scrawled "Just married" and "Prince and Duchess" along with hearts and "C+C" in white pen on the windows of the car and had attached red, white and blue balloons on one side, and silver heart balloons on the other. The confetti - ivory and pink freeze-dried delphinium petals - had been specially ordered by William and Harry. Video: Royal superfans gather in Windsor A massive police operation is under way in Windsor with a "ring of steel" surrounding the town centre for the wedding at St George's Chapel on Saturday. 11:48AM Which celebrities will be royal wedding guests? The next big development is expected to be confirmation of some of the more high-profile guests who will be among the 600 people inside St George's Chapel. Some of Ms Markle's former Suits co-stars have started to make their way to the UK. Patrick J Adams, who played Ms Markle's on-screen husband, Mike Ross, in the US legal drama series, has already arrived and is believed to be attending the ceremony in Windsor. He and his wife, Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario, have been pictured at the Royal Standard of England pub in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, in a post on Instagram. Happy 18th birthday, @clare.stephenson_ - thanks for taking us to our new favorite bar. A post shared by Patrick Adams (@halfadams) on May 17, 2018 at 1:00pm PDT Two more Suits stars, Gabriel Macht, who plays Harvey Specter, and his wife Jacinda Barrett, who plays Zoey Lawford, have also been in the UK this week and are thought to be on the wedding guest list. On Tuesday, the couple both posted pictures from a visit to London's Hyde Park. Yesterday #london #hydepark Today #guess A post shared by Gabriel Macht (@iamgabrielmacht) on May 16, 2018 at 7:51am PDT Sarah Rafferty, who plays Donna Paulsen in the series, has been sharing pictures from a trip in Paris in recent days, and has now arrived in London. And Rick Hoffman, who plays lawyer Louis Litt in the TV show, has also recently flown in. On Thursday, he announced on Instagram that had had touched down at Heathrow Airport. Other former co-stars and friends of Ms Markle, including Gina Torres, Abigail Spencer and Wendell Pierce, are rumoured to have been invited. Indian actress and philanthropist Priyanka Chopra, a close friend of the bride-to-be, previously said she would be attending the wedding. In the early hours of Friday morning, she posted pictures on Twitter from a transatlantic flight. Alongside one picture, from her seat on the plane, the Quantico actress wrote: "C u on the other side." While Kensington Palace is not releasing an official full guest list, a number of other high-profile stars are expected to be adding some showbiz glamour to the wedding of the year. Victoria and David Beckham? Victoria and David Beckham are likely to attend, and the fashion designer recently appeared to confirm during an interview on James Corden's US chat show that they would be there for the nuptials. The famous couple were among the star guests at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011. Sir Elton John? Sir Elton John and husband David Furnish, close friends of the royal family, are expected to be attending. Musician Sir Elton has cancelled two of his Las Vegas shows this week so he can fly to the UK, according to reports. Serena Williams, Ed Sheeran, Cara Delevingne? US tennis champion Serena Williams, who is a close friend of Ms Markle, is reported to be another big name on the guest list. Also rumoured to be attending the wedding in Windsor are the likes of musicians Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding, model Cara Delevingne and former Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh. 11:04AM What will happen tomorrow: The moment Prince Charles takes Ms Markle's arm - and how the ceremony will be changed Ms Markle will walk the first half of the St George's Chapel aisle alone, surrounded by young page boys and bridesmaids but without anyone by her side. At the Quire, which effectively marks the second half of the aisle, Ms Marke will be met by the Prince of Wales, her future father-in-law, who will take her arm for the final steps. The ceremony will omit the traditional moment of "giving away", where the presiding Archbishop asks: "Who giveth this woman to be married to this man?" 10:47AM Prince Philip will attend royal wedding tomorrow Buckingham has confirmed that Prince Philip will attend Saturday's wedding to see his grandson Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle. The Duke of Edinburgh, 96, has recovered well from a hip replacement operation that saw him spend 11 days in hospital. The Duke was spotted at the Royal Windsor Horse Show last week - the first public sighting of the Queen's consort since he left hospital.

No-one will "give her away" #RoyalWedding— Hannah Furness (@Hannah_Furness) May 18, 2018 10:14AM Prince Charles will be standing in for Meghan's father Orders of service have already been printed, stating that the bride "will be accompanied by her father".  In fact, Thomas Markle is not well enough to travel, citing heart problems after it emerged he had colluded with the paparazzi for staged photographs in his home town in Mexico. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, will instead stand in for Mr Markle. The Prince previously escorted Alexandra Knatchbull, the daughter of his close friend, down the aisle at her high society wedding to Thomas Hooper in 2016.

The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to  welcome Ms Markle to The Royal Family in this way."  Meghan Markle joined Prince Charles and other members of the Royal family for the Christmas Day church service in Sandringham Credit: Stephen Daniels  10:02AM Breaking: Prince Charles will walk Meghan down aisle   The Prince of Wales will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at St George's Chapel in Windsor, Kensington Palace has confirmed.  Her mother Doria Ragland had been expected to perform the duty after Ms Markle's father, Thomas Markle, decided not to attend the wedding on medical advice after undergoing heart surgery. 9:39AM Royal superfans camp out overnight to secure best spots in Windsor Excitement is building for the royal wedding, but an army of superfans have taken it to a different level. Dozens of royalists have spent the first of two nights sleeping outside in Windsor in order to secure the best spots outside the castle. Rugged up in sleeping bags and blankets, they swerved a ban on tents to sleep rough so they could grab prime positions.

Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain, the former England centre, who married the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips in 2011 said of Ms Markle: "I think she'll be nervous, but coming from her background in TV she's used to public spotlight. "Not quite as much probably as has gone on this week, but she'll be fine and I think she's experienced enough to know that all she can do is enjoy the day. "And it's a special day for them both, and as long as they get a quiet moment during the day and actually have enjoyed the day that's what I wish for them, and hopefully they'll live happily ever after." Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall on their wedding day in Edinburgh in 2011  Credit: Martin Rickett /PA Mr Tindall said he remembers the drinks reception with the royals the night before his wedding to Ms Phillips. "We had a drinks event the night before and they are professional meeters and greeters, and I remember my family were in a corner and a little bit out of their comfort zone because it's not where they are used to being," he said. "But the best thing about the Royal Family is that they are so lovely and they'll spot the people who are looking a little bit nervous and go straight over and take away all of that tension straight out of the room, and that's what they are amazing at. "Then suddenly you're in the family and they welcome you with welcome arms." 8:59AM Here comes the sun! 'Ideal' weather forecast for royal wedding day After months of planning, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be relieved that one feature of a perfect wedding day is virtually guaranteed - plenty of sunshine. Windsor is expected to see "ideal" wedding conditions on Saturday, with balmy temperatures and clear skies accompanied by a light breeze. The glorious forecast comes with a health warning for the thousands of well-wishers expected to turn out - use plenty of sunscreen and wear a hat. However, the weather is set to be just right for when the newlyweds emerge from St George's Chapel before a ride around the town in the open-top Landau carriage at around 1pm. Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles said: "We are expecting wall-to-wall sunshine all day. The beginning of the day will start off cold - around 6C (43F) or 7C (45F) - but will rapidly warm up. "Temperatures will peak around 3 o'clock at 21C (70F) and there will be light winds - all ideal for a wedding." Preparations for the #RoyalWedding are well underway. It is going to be warm and sunny in Windsor on Saturday so if you are going to be there plan for the hot weather https://t.co/wWTqIdS6qFhttps://t.co/h3DW76m721— Met Office (@metoffice) May 17, 2018 The mercury is expected to have reached a summery 19C (66F) by the time the couple set off in the carriage procession. After lunch hosted by the Queen at St George's Hall at the castle, the wedding party will then move on to the evening reception at nearby Frogmore House hosted by the Prince of Wales. "Once again we are expecting clear skies during the evening; it will be pleasant with sunshine, but temperatures will drop relatively quickly," Mr Bowles said. "At 8pm it will be around 12C (54F), but once you get past midnight it will be 8C (46F) or 9C (48F) and minimum temperatures will again be around 6C."

A chilly night is in store on Friday for any die-hard royal watchers planning to camp out in order to bag the best spots along the route. The sun rises at 5.05am; however, it will take an hour or two before things will begin hotting up ready for the day's festivities. "The minimum we are likely to get will be about 6C (43F) at around 6am," Mr Bowles said. "That's quite cold to be camping, but there will be low winds of maybe around 3mph and no rain is expected at all." 8:53AM 'Ethereal-tasting' wedding cake breaks with tradition The royal couple's "ethereal" tasting wedding cake will be displayed in a special installation, their baker has revealed. Claire Ptak, who is making the culinary centrepiece for the couple's big day, said the layered lemon and elderflower cake - in three parts of varying sizes - would be presented in a non-traditional way. The final design will be unveiled on the big day although Meghan and Harry are in on the plans. "You'll have to wait and see on the day. It's an installation of the way that we're putting it out. It's the last thing that we'll reveal. It's a non-traditional layout," Ms Ptak said. "It's a slight shift from tradition." The chef, who owns the small, trendy Violet Bakery in east London, has been working with her team of six bakers full time for five days in the large kitchens of Buckingham Palace. She described the flavour of the cake as being a balance of sweet and tart, combined with "ethereal" elderflower. The cake, which is being decorated on the outside with a white, elderflower swiss meringue buttercream, is made of layered lemon sponge, drizzled with an elderflower syrup to a recipe specially created for the couple. The layers are sandwiched with buttercream and lemon curd. Some 200 Amalfi lemons are being used in the recipe, as well as 10 bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial made using elderflower from the Queen's Sandringham estate, 20kgs of butter, 20 kgs of flour, 20kgs of sugar and 500 organic eggs from Suffolk. Claire Ptak, owner of Violet Bakery in Hackney, and head baker Izaak Adams put finishing touches to the cake Credit: HANNAH MCKAY /Reuters Ms Ptak said: "It's a lemon sponge - a special sponge that I developed just for the couple, and we drizzle the layers with elderflower cordial from the Sandringham estate so it's really lovely and as local as you can get. "We have a lemon curd made from Amalfi lemons which to me have the most delicious flavour. "And then we've got elderflower swiss meringue buttercream." 8:01AM Final wedding preparations under way as countdown begins The bunting is going up and the sun is shining (for now). Good morning and happy royal wedding eve! Excitement is building in Windsor as crowds gather ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials on Saturday. As The Telegraph's Royal Correspondent Hannah Furnessreports, Ms Markle has been left negotiating the last-minute dilemma of who is going to walk her down the aisle, as her mother settled in to life with the Royal family. Doria Ragland, who is now the most likely candidate to accompany the bride down the aisle, enjoyed tea with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on Thursday, after Ms Markle’s father was confirmed as being absent from the wedding.  She will meet the Queen on Friday at Windsor Castle. Ms Ragland on Thursday spent time with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they took part in a full rehearsal of Saturday's service. The young page boys and bridesmaids were shown the ropes at St George's Chapel, with ten children aged between two and seven due to accompany Ms Markle. Meghan Markle Doria Ragland leaving Los Angeles on her way to London Credit: Snorlax/Rachpoot/ MEGA  In a heartfelt statement, Ms Markle asked for her father to be given “space” to recover after he contacted her to tell say he would not be able to come to the wedding, after taking medical advice. The bride-to-be was photographed with Prince Harry being driven down Windsor Castle’s Long Walk to undertake final rehearsals for their wedding at midday on Saturday. Smiling and fiddling with her engagement ring, Ms Markle appeared to be taking a difficult week in her stride as the Royal family rallied round to help. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrive for wedding rehearsals in Windsor on Thursday Credit: Karwai Tang Ms Ragland, who only flew in to Heathrow on Wednesday, took tea at Clarence House with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall. In what was described by sources as a “jolly” encounter, Prince Harry, Ms Markle and her mother joined the heir to the throne at home to enjoy a quiet moment in the middle of a busy day of meetings. Ms Ragland is said to have “thoroughly enjoyed” the gathering, feeling welcomed by the Prince and Duchess with whom she has much in common. The Duchess has recently taken on patronages of charities to support the elderly, Ms Ragland’s area of work, while both are known to be regular practitioners of yoga. Markle family The issue of who will walk Ms Markle down the aisle remains under discussion, with Ms Markle understood to want to delay announcing a replacement for her father too soon out of respect for him. Orders of service have already been printed, stating that the bride "will be accompanied by her father".  In fact, Thomas Markle is not well enough to travel, citing heart problems after it emerged he had colluded with the paparazzi for staged photographs in his home town in Mexico. In a statement issued by Kensington Palace on Thursday , Ms Markle said: “Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding,” she said. “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. “I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. “Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”   Meghan Markle with her father Thomas Credit: TIM STEWART NEWS LIMITED  By Ms Markle’s side on the final days leading up to the wedding, her mother is helping finalise plans for the day. Already confirmed as travelling with Ms Markle to the castle for the service, she is considered the most likely candidate, reflecting their close relationship and the bride’s belief in gender equality. Ms Markle could still choose to walk alone, or be accompanied by a male friend of member of the Royal family such as the Prince of Wales or Duke of Cambridge, who already has duties as best man. The Duke of Edinburgh, who walked Princess Margaret down the aisle in 1960, is expected to attend after recovering well from a hip replacement operation.  In Windsor, thousands of members of the public turned out to watch preparations outside the castle walls, where the armed forces carried out a dress rehearsal for their roles on the day. Video: Military in royal wedding rehearsal in Windsor Some 250 members of the armed forces are expected to take part in Saturday's festivities, lining the streets as the newlywed man and wife head on a 25-minute carriage ride through the town. There is a heavy police presence, with armed officers stationed around town and other officers on top of buildings looking over the crowds. The warm and sunny weather experienced by visitors is due to continue until Saturday when, according to forecasters, it will be 21C. Let's hope they are right.

    A close ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a stark warning to the United States about the risks of placing "America First", accusing Washington of seeking to block a planned Russia-Germany gas pipeline to shore up its own exports. Economy minister Peter Altmaier defended the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is strongly opposed by many East European countries as well as the U.S., who say that by circumventing Ukraine the pipeline will increase Russia's leverage over countries that rely on Moscow's energy sales. Ahead of a summit due later on Friday between Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Altmaier said the European Union should guarantee that Ukraine will continue to receive gas transit fees, even after the pipeline is built under the Baltic.......Search More News
