A stark contrast to the celebrations that kicked off in 2011 for our last Royal Wedding.
With just days to go before the royal wedding, Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, has taken center stage.
"The couple will be going on honeymoon, but not straightaway", Kensington Palace rep Jason Knauf said May 4.
It comes as the American actress's father Thomas Markle has pulled out of attending the wedding again due to having a heart procedure.
But while drama continues to surround the royal wedding, as Meghan's father confirms he will no longer walk his daughter down the aisle, it's the absence of Prince Harry's mother that hangs heavy in the air.More news: OIC to meet in Istanbul Friday to mull Israel violence
Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, will arrive by auto from another facility where they will sleep at the night before the wedding.
"On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by auto to Windsor Castle", the statement said.
Guests will arrive at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle between 3:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. People confirmed that Thomas Markle would meet Prince Harry for the first time when he arrived in the United Kingdom a week before the ceremony. He also said that he had suffered a heart attack a week earlier.
Mr Markle was due to walk his daughter down the aisle at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth's home in the west of London, at a ceremony attended by Britain's royals and celebrities, and in the glare of the world's media.
Ms Markle's goddaughters, Remi Litt, six, and her elder sister, Rylan, seven, will also be joining the procession of bridesmaids.
As Charles' youngest son prepares to marry his United States bride, Charles and Camilla were seen flying into the royal residences while royal staff assisted them with suitcases.
