British Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle will get married at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle today. The guests will be arriving between 09.30 am and 11.00 am, and members of the royal family will begin to arrive from 11.20am. 

They will enter St George's Chapel via the Galilee Porch, by foot or car.

Meghan and Harry's marriage ceremony is due to start at 12 pm London time.

Mr Thomas Markle, Meghan's dad, was expected to walk her down the aisle but was unable to take on the role after he suffered a heart attack.

Instead, Prince Charles will walk the bride down the aisle – although Meghan will make the first half of the journey alone, entering the chapel unaccompanied.
