Meghan Markle has confirmed her father will not be attending her wedding to Prince Harry. Mr Markle is still in Mexico where he is recovering from heart surgery on Wednesday to implant three stents.
After days of speculation about whether or not Thomas Markle would walk her down the aisle, the American star spoke of her sadness as she revealed it had been decided he will miss her big day. She added that he can be given the “space he needs to focus on his health”.
In the meantime, Thursday was the day when the key actors in the wedding ceremony, took part in the wedding rehearsal. The Telegraph revealed exclusive footage of the couple going to Windsor. “Ms Markle appeared in good spirits in the car, as she and the Prince were driven down the Long Walk in Windsor. Fiddling with her engagement ring, she wore a simple white shirt with her hair half up and half down for a day of final wedding preparations.”
As the bride and groom practised their lines behind closed doors, the military were rehearsing their part in the day through the town. Thousands of people turned out to get a flavour of how Saturday will unfold, when the newlyweds head on a 25-minute carriage ride through the town.
