At 7 a.m., onlookers will get their first glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as the couple embarks around Windsor in a carriage to greet well-wishers, who hope to catch a glimpse of the couple sharing a kiss.

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

Prince Harry's office declined to comment on Monday on a report by American celebrity news site TMZ that the father of his fiancee Meghan Markle would not attend the couple's glittering wedding in Britain on Saturday.

Nash also shared some information about the guests.

Earlier today Thomas told TMZ that he suffered a heart attack just 6 days ago but checked himself out of hospital so he could prepare to attend the wedding.

The former Suits star's father, Thomas Markle, previously said he would not walk his 36-year-old daughter down the aisle, but has since gone back on his word and has insisted he will attend the marital ceremony - health permitting.

Markets Right Now: Stocks are mostly lower; bond yields rise
Treasuries were a key factor for the market Tuesday as investors watched 10-year Treasury yields climb to 3.08%. Gains in health care and energy stocks outweighed losses in real estate companies and other sectors.

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.

William will be Harry's best man. Markle has chosen not to have a maid of honor for the ceremony in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. They were due to travel to the chapel together on Saturday. "Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion".

"I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle", Mr Markle told TMZ.

She was also carrying a garment in a Burberry bag.

"It is fair to say this bloke is forking us off big time because as far as we are concerned, we have our work cut out already on the big day", a Windsor Police source reportedly (and hilariously) told Express.
