Six hundred guests will watch the wedding, officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, in St George's chapel, with the service broadcast to millions across the world.

About 1,200 members of the public - many who are recognised for their charity work - have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding. Prince Harry is expected to arrive with his brother and best man Prince William at the west door of the chapel at 1140. The Queen will be the last member of the Royal Family to arrive at 1152, before Ms Markle arrives with her mother Doria Ragland. Ms Markle has 10 bridesmaids and pageboys, all under the age of eight - including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The bride will be met by Prince Charles, who will walk her down the aisle of the Quire of the chapel. During the service, the couple will pledge themselves to one another, saying: "For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part." The Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry, the 27th presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, from Chicago, will give an address at the wedding and the Rt Rev David Conner, Dean of Windsor, will conduct the service. Lady Jane Fellowes, the sister of Prince Harry's late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, will give a reading. Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir will perform Ben E. King's soul classic Stand By Me during the service. The gospel choir will also perform Etta James' uplifting version of Amen/This Little Light of Mine as the newlyweds leave the chapel. UNI
