Prince Harry royal wed­ding set for Satur­day

The Manica Post - - Health / Foreign -

MEGHAN Markle's fam­ily has found it­self on the world stage ahead of her wed­ding to Prince Harry on Satur­day. Af­ter ty­ing the knot on Satur­day, Harry and Ms Markle will travel through Wind­sor in the As­cot Lan­dau car­riage.

Used in of­fi­cial and cer­e­mo­nial state events, the car­riage will be pulled by Wind­sor grey horses.

On Satur­day the pro­ces­sion will take place at 13:00 BST, af­ter the hour-long ser­vice at St Ge­orge's Chapel.

Mem­bers of both fam­i­lies will gather on the steps of the chapel to wave off the newly-weds on their car­riage pro­ces­sion, which is ex­pected to last about 25 min­utes.

The car­riage will leave Cas­tle Hill, travel through Wind­sor and then it will pro­ceed up the Long Walk all the way back to St Ge­orge's Hall by Wind­sor Cas­tle.

Kens­ing­ton Palace re­vealed on Wed­nes­day that Prince Harry's niece, three-year-old Princess Char­lotte, will be one of six brides­maids at the wed­ding.

Her el­der brother, Prince Ge­orge, aged four, will be a page­boy along­side three other young boys.

The 10 chil­dren who have been cho­sen are all aged seven or un­der.

So far, the de­tails of the brides­maids' dresses and the page­boys' uni­forms re­main un­der wraps.

Ms Markle, 36, will not have a maid of hon­our be­cause she wanted to avoid choos­ing be­tween her clos­est friends.

It is still un­clear who will walk her down the aisle af­ter it was re­ported that her fa­ther was due to have heart surgery.

Thomas Markle had told US web­site TMZ he would not go to the wed­ding amid a row over pa­parazzi pho­to­graphs; then that he would; then that he could not be­cause of a planned heart pro­ce­dure.
