Prince Harry and Meghan look relaxed as they leave Windsor Castle following wedding rehearsal with the Queen.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been pictured leaving Windsor Castle after a wedding rehearsal – just hours after the former actress was forced to confirm that her father would not walk her down the aisle.
The American actress smiled as she arrived while her royal fiance looked far more serious. She is said to be privately ‘tearful and embarrassed’ about the chaos her father Thomas Markle has caused.
The couple’s Range Rover was escorted by police as they sped past crowds of well-wishers and up the famous Long Walk to oversee the last preparations for their wedding day.
They also had tea with the Queen who travelled from Buckingham Palace to take part in the dry-run ceremony.
Harry’s brother William and his wife Kate were also seen leaving Kensington Palace for Windsor ahead of rehearsals this afternoon, which saw soldiers and an Ascot carriage parade along the planned route of the procession.
Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, who is set to give her daughter away in her father’s absence, has been taken on a 24-hour royal whirlwind, having tea with Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall yesterday and meeting Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, at Windsor today.
Buckingham Palace confirmed that Doria will meet the Queen on Friday, with Prince Harry and Ms Markle also set to attend.
