The ceremony will have a band playing as well as a royal procession with lookalikes playing the royal family, including a Prince Harry and a Meghan Markle.

They are the two oldest children of Prince William, Harry's brother, and his wife Kate.

Meghan's dad Thomas was supposed to walk his daughter down the aisle, but this evening news emerged that he has cancelled his plans to attend the wedding altogether.

Mr Markle was pictured being measured for what was thought to be his wedding suit, looking at screen pictures of Meghan and Prince Harry while in an internet cafe, and reading a picture book about Britain while having a coffee.

In the aftermath of the scandal, Thomas Markle told TMZ that will no longer attend the wedding, hoping to avoid any embarrassment to Markle and the royal family.

"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle", he told the outlet.

They will then travel through the streets of Windsor in a carriage.

Asteroid 2010 WC9 is only a fraction of the size of the rock that caused the mass extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs. The 2010 sign means that it was initially detected in 2010, particularly on November 30, by the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona.

The couple will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in a midday ceremony, taking place in St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle. "Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion".

Later in the day, Thomas Markle told TMZ he staged the photos in an effort to rebrand his image and admits the posed pictures look "stupid and hammy".

On Monday, Ms Markle's half-sister Samantha admitted involvement in faking the photos, but insisted it wasn't motivated by money.

A stark contrast to the celebrations that kicked off in 2011 for our last Royal Wedding.

Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has chose to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter.
