While Royal Family members such as Duchess Catherine, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie will be arriving soon.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and his best man, big brother Prince William will also be making a grand entrance imminently!

Kensington Palace have shared the first glimpses of the majestic floral creations dreamt up by Philippa Craddock, posting a photo of the entrance of the chapel adorned in an array of white roses, lilies and lush greenery.

The floral entrance is simply stunning.

It really takes a village!

Harry and Meghan masks at the ready.

As we await the wedding, the palace have finally confirmed the couple’s official titles: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

The statement from Buckingham Palace reads: “The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.”

“Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say “I do” at 1pm UK time in front of 600 friends and family in an hour-long religious ceremony.

The couple will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, who has previously spoken of the pair’s “profound sense of commitment” to each other.

While the wedding service will be delivered by the Rt Revd. David Conner, the Dean of Windsor.

They’ll then make their dazzling debut as husband and wife on a horse-drawn carriage, which will work its way around the town centre so well-wishers can catch a glimpse of the newlyweds.

The planned route will snake around Castle Hill, the High Street before heading back to the Castle via Long Walk.

Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell isn’t invited to the ceremony but that hasn’t stopped him showing up.

This pooch is ready to celebrate.

It’s not a wedding til there’s a town crier, right?

Thousands are camped around Windsor in the hopes of getting a glimpse of the bride and groom.

It will no doubt remind fans of similar scenes that played out during Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s 2011 wedding.

The royal couple have also invited 2,640 members of the public from various charities and organisations close to their heart into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the wedding. It’s a touching sentiment of inclusion towards people from all walks of life that will no doubt remind fans of Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Following the carriage procession, guests will gather inside St. George’s Hall for a day-time reception.

In the evening, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, will mingle with a smaller group of VIP guests at a private reception hosted by the groom’s father Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

After 15 months of dating, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement in November last year.

“His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle are engaged to be married,” a statement from Kensington Palace read at the time.

Their romance has been a ground-breaking chapter for the British Royal Family as it marks the first time an American has married into the dynasty since Wallis Simpson controversially wed King Edward VIII in 1937.

But thankfully we’re now living in 2018 and unlike King Edward VIII, who gave up the throne so he could marry the twice-divorced socialite, Prince Harry’s marriage to his new wife, who was previously married to producer Trevor Engelson between 2011 and 2013, has been be embraced and celebrated by his loved ones and indeed the world!

In their official engagement interview, the couple confirmed they hit it off after they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, rumoured to be fashion PR Violet von Westenholz, in 2016.

“I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her,” Prince Harry has said of their fateful first encounter.

“It was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic,” a besotted Meghan agreed.

A huge congratulations to the royal newlyweds, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
