Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ask USA bishop to deliver wedding address

Buckingham Palace shared a photograph, taken at the Palace, of the beautifully illustrated hand-written legal document that means the marriage can officially take place next Saturday. But 750 million people watched the ceremony on TV and 600,000 people filled the streets of London to get a glimpse of the couple.

As unelected representatives of the state, members of the royal family are heavily discouraged from expressing political opinions in public. They enter the chapel via the Galilee Porch on the south side.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, will accompany the bride in the auto to Windsor Castle on the morning of the wedding, while her father, Thomas Markle, will walk her down the aisle.

"It was heavy, every step was a squat", she said. Thomas Markle walks his daughter down the aisle.

Kensington Palace previously announced that David Conner, the Dean of Windsor, will conduct the wedding service.

The Archbishop of Canterbury then joked that while officiating the wedding ceremony, he will try not to "drop the ring".


All three siblings of Harry's late mother Diana, princess of Wales, will be in attendance.

- 1:00 pm (1200 GMT): The newlyweds come out from the West Steps and acknowledge the charity representatives.

"I think you have to go to the extreme when you're gifting both for a man and a woman, because both people benefit from the gift", Rihanna teased, before giving a preview of her collection.

Harry, grandson of Queen Elizabeth and sixth-in-line to the throne, and Markle, star of U.S. TV drama "Suits", will tie the knot next Saturday at Windsor Castle, home to British royals for almost 1,000 years.

If the weather is bad, the couple will travel in the 1830 Scottish State Coach, which has large glass windows and transparent panels in the roof. In her Elizabeth R signature at the top, the the R stands for regina, the Latin for queen. "Obviously she comes from a very different background and. that's hugely important to take the royal family into the future".

A further evening reception will be hosted by Prince Charles for a select number of guests.
