Meghan Markle's father will attend the royal wedding

A statement released by Kensington Palace today said: "Both of the bride's parents will have important roles in the wedding".

Ms Markle will travel with her mother to the church by auto while Prince Harry will arrive with his brother Prince William, who he announced as his best man last month.

In a letter published by InTouch magazine Meghan's estranged half-brother slammed her and wrote that her dad hadn't been invited.

The statement reads: "All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading".

At the wedding, the royal couple also plan to honour the memory of the late Princess Diana, Harry's mother, who died in a Paris auto crash in 1997. Diana divorced Prince Charles in 1996 and tragically died in a auto crash in Paris, France at the age of 36 the following year.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child - Prince Louis of Cambridge - will not attend the nuptials.

Some 610 members of the Windsor community, 530 employees of the royal household and pupils from nearby schools are also invited to join the celebrations in the castle park. The newlyweds will attend their first royal engagement together a week after the wedding, the palace said.

It had not been known what role Ms Markle's parents would play in the wedding.

Here's what many furious fans had to say about Jadeja, who isn't looking in good touch in the tournament, and his effort tonight. Between Tom Curran, Andre Russell and Vinay Kumar, the three fast bowlers couldn't do much to prevent that from happening.

Priyanka Chopra visited "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday, and host Andy Cohen made a decision to take advantage of the "Quantico" star's close friendship with Meghan Markle. "Her own father didn't get an invite, whom should be walking her down the aisle".

Ms Ragland, who is African-American, met Mr Markle on the set of the USA soap General Hospital, where he worked as a lighting director, when she was a temp in the studio. "Ms Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion". On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by auto to Windsor Castle.

Meghan and Harry will not depart for their honeymoon immediately after the wedding.

"After the service has concluded, the newly-married couple will proceed out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry's charities gathered in the Cloister".

"People keep asking, 'What are you guys gonna wear to the royal wedding?' I'm like, 'We don't even have to wear trousers.' We're sitting behind a desk!"

Tens of thousands of well-wishers are expected to cram into the medieval town of Windsor on the day of the wedding, though the most they can expect to see (apart from on public TV screens) is the couple's carriage procession after the wedding.

The bride's parents will fly to London the week before the wedding to meet the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton. He said in his rant that Meghan will make a joke of Prince and the royal family.
