The wedding celebrations, forecast to play out under sunshine and blue skies, will be a sumptuous show of British pageantry that is likely to attract a huge world audience. Kensington Palace has not commented on any changes to the wedding day plan.

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.

He reportedly told the website he was OK after three stents had been inserted but needed to rest.

Her daughter, 4-year-old Ivy, will be a bridesmaid alongside 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and the other three goddaughters of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. No replacement has been officially named.

A day later Markle said he still wanted to walk his daughter down the aisle, but added that his health might not allow it.

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding", the statement read.

Royal super-fans reacted with delight to the announcement.

Could she decide to take her beagle rescue dog Guy for a walk down the aisle on Saturday?

A large number of officers were present as crowds watched the troops who will accompany the newlyweds on the carriage procession perform a practice run on Thursday.

"It's very important to have a dress rehearsal, for everyone involved".

Also in the United Kingdom - though not at the chapel - are members of Markle's extended family.

But in his 20s, Harry regularly made the headlines, including the now infamous Las Vegas naked photos, while his military service in Afghanistan was abruptly ended after a media blackout was broken, sparking fears for his safety.

The loved-up pair will leave their Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday with fancy new names as a gift from the Queen.

Her mother, Doria Ragland, is traveling from Los Angeles to England for the wedding and is scheduled to ride with her daughter to St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle before the ceremony.

British tabloid The Sun reports Jessica was in the United Kingdom earlier in the year to help Markle with her wedding dress fittings. That story also included a report that he had suffered a recent heart attack. In an effort not to embarrass his daughter or the the royal family, he says, Thomas Markle told the outlet he won't be attending the royal wedding.

Kensington Palace's attempts to project a sense of serenity around the wedding preparations have been clouded by Markle's relatives, who have not been invited to Saturday's nuptials following stories of bust-ups, heavy drinking and an arrest.

"At my age most people are, like, 'give me a hotel"'. "Could they not have taken at least a few steps to get them on-side?"
