United Kingdom: Britain’s Royal Wedding– With just a few hours before the entire globe gets glued to their TV Screens to watch Britain’s much awaited Royal wedding of Prince Harry and former American Actress Meghan Markle, we bring you here the lasts updates on the wedding preparations and the ceremony which will be broadcast around the globe.
The lovely couple, of Royal Wedding Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle, will be solemnizing their wedding vow in the historic St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle in a ceremony that will begin at 12 pm today.
Die-hard royalists – many decked out in the national colors of both Britain and the United States – camped out overnight in a bid to secure the best spots to catch a glimpse of the Prince and the American former actress.
Senior members of the Royal family and a raft of celebrities will be among the 600 invited guests and another 2,640 members of the public have been chosen to watch the ceremony from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The Prince of Wales is stepping in for the father of the bride, as he prepares to walk Ms. Markle down the aisle.
Kensington Palace said Ms. Markle had asked her future father-in-law to accompany her as she makes her way to the altar after her father; Thomas Markle was forced to pull out in a dramatic upset just two days before the wedding.
She will be followed by her six bridesmaids and four pageboys including Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Ms. Markle will then be accompanied by Charles through the quire, which begins in the middle of the chapel. However, the ceremony will omit the traditional moment of “giving away”.
Royal Wedding: Prince Harry and Ms. Markle spent their last night as an unmarried couple in separate luxury hotels – and will only meet again at the altar.
It is not the first time that the Royal House of Britain will be breaking away from the tradition of marrying a commoner. Before Prince Harry, his elder brother Prince Williams, Duke of Cambridge married Kate Middleton (Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) who was a model and actress.
In the last few decades, the Royal weddings have been negating many of their strict age-old customs and trying to mingle more with the common customs of the common people in general.
Meanwhile, the Royal wedding ceremonies of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already started in the premises of Windsor Castle.
