Some final updates on tomorrow’s wedding were released by the Palace today. In this blog, you can check out every update we got today.
What to expect today? – We can expect to see pictures of Meghan’s mother Doria and the couple arriving at Windsor Castle this afternoon for tea with the Queen. It will be the first time that Doria will meet the Queen. After her arrival on Wednesday, she met with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and yesterday she met with the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace.
The bride and the groom will check into their hotels tonight. We might see photographs of Meghan and Doria arriving at their hotel, and Prince Harry and his best man, the Duke of Cambridge, arriving at their own hotel. The couple will stay in seperate hotels.
Tea with the Queen – In the video below, one can see Harry and Meghan leaving Kensington Palace for Windsor. Meghan is wearing a navy dress, and the couple seemed to be very excited. At this time tomorrow, they will be man and wife!
Walking down the aisle – Kensington Palace announced today dat Meghan has zeker her soon-to-be father-in-law, the Prince of Wales, to accompany her during her walk down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel. His Royal Highness is said to be very glad to be able to welkome Meghan into the family in this very special way. According to reporters, he was very touched by Meghan’s request. Apparently, this is what Meghan wanted now her father will not be attending the weddings and she is said to be very happy that the Prince of Wales will do it. He will meet the bride when she is about to enter the Quire. The first part of the walk, up to the Quire, will be done by Meghan on her own, accompanied by her six bridesmaids and four pageboys.
It is very important to note that the Prince of Wales will not be giving away the bride. He will only be accompanying her during the second part of her walk down the aisle.
The Duke of Edinburgh – Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Duke of Edinburgh will be attending the wedding of his grandson tomorrow. The Duke had a full hip replacement in April and has since been recovering from the surgery, first in the hospital, and at home afterwards. He was first seen in public after the surgery a week ago during the Royal Windsor Horse Show. The Royal Family had always hoped that he would be able to attend, and this is now confirmed to be the case.
The Royal Family’s YouTube Channel – The wedding will be streamed live on the Royal Family’s YouTube Channel tomorrow morning from 11:00AM onwards. This stream can be viewed from all over the world. Many other national broadcasters will cover the wedding too, such as the BBC and Sky News. Their coverage will start around 9:00AM.

The Wedding Cake – Kensington Palace shared a picture of the preperation of the Royal Wedding cake today. According to the baker, Claire Ptak, it’s going to be a very special and modern cake! The final view of the cake will only be revealed tomorrow.
The cast of Suits – Meghan’s former co-stars from the show Suits have been arriving in London over the past few days with their families to attend the wedding tomorrow. In the video below, you can see Rick Hoffman (Suits’ Louis Litt), Sarah Rafferty (Suits’ Donna) and Gina Torres (Suits Jessica Pearson) talking about Meghan. Other stars who have been seen in London already include Patrick J. Adams (Suits Mike Ross – Meghan’s on-screen husband) and his wife Troian (also known as Spencer in the very popular show Pretty Little Liars) and Garbiel Macht (Suits Harvey Specter) and his wife Jacinda. Apparently, the cast have been helped out by the costume department with their outfits for the wedding – the British dresscode of morning suits and hats appeared to be difficult for Americans! We can’t wait to see what they look like tomorrow! Their full appearance on the show can be seen here.
Another Rehearsal – Inside St. George’s Chapel, another rehearsal for the four pageboys and six bridesmaids is taking place today. They have all been joined by their parents, very possibly including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I am expecting that Princess Charlotte is going to steal the show again tomorrow! A full list of the lucky ten can be seen in this post.
Amanda Cook Tucker – The Duchess of Cambridge’s hairdresser has been spotted near Windsor Castle tonight. She is known to be HRH’s hairdresser for many years now, and has even been cutting Prince William’s and Prince Harry’s hair when they were kids. She has been spotted at the Lindo Wing every time when the Duchess gave birth to do her hair just before leaving the hospital with her newborn. Ms. Cook Tucker is thought to be arriving ahead of another top-job tomorrow, dressing the Duchess’ hair for the wedding of her beloved brother-in-law.
The Flowers – The florists responsible for the floral decorations inside the church tomorrow have been working very hard over the past few days to get everything done. One of the Royal reporters in Windsor just tweeted this photograph of this gorgeous flower piece:
