It later reported that he was having heart surgery.

Markle says she would like "to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support".

"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation".

Planners will use Thursday's practice session to finalize some of the details of Saturday's gala wedding at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Will Doria Ragland walk Meghan down the aisle?

"Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day", said a palace statement. As one would expect, nearly everything is on the table.

The royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is to take place in a few days as the young couple tie the knot. The latter has been chosen to give the reading at the ceremony.

A large military contingent will also take part, reflecting Harry's years of military service.

Flowers The chapel will be filled with white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves, with branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, carefully crafted by floral designer Philippa Craddock.

No politicians Neither Donald Trump, Barack Obama nor Canadian PM Justin Trudeau will be there and neither will Prime Minister Theresa May as aides have said the wedding is not a state occasion.

Observers have noted qualities in Harry's bride-to-be that recall those of his mother.

Music Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the gospel Kingdom Choir founded and directed by Karen Gibson, Baroque specialist trumpeter David Blackadder and soprano Elin Manahan Thomas will be among those providing the music which will echo around the 15th century church. The pageboys are Prince George, Jasper Dyer, Brian Mulroney and John Mulroney.

Royal wedding organizers are preparing for a rehearsal of the proceedings to take place in Windsor - but without the bridge and groom.

The Queen is hosting the gathering for the 600-strong congregation, and guests will tuck into classic dishes made from seasonal British produce, served as canapes and bowl dishes.

The couple have invited Diana's younger brother, Earl Charles Spencer, and her two older sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, to the wedding.

The London-based museum last week unveiled the Meghan Markle figure, which it said was dressed in a dark green P.A.R.O.S.H. frock, the same outfit the American actress wore when the couple's engagement was announced last year.

If the numbers create a safety issue, Windsor will effectively be closed to latecomers by the police.

As they turn through the roads, this spot will be able to see them as they traverse the streets.

Honeymoon The destination is a secret, but Harry and Ms Markle will not be leaving straight away.
