Meghan Markle arrives for first official event alongside the Queen

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the latest reports about who will attend the wedding. Meghan Markle's fiance Prince Harry, is also gearing up to take on an official leadership role within the Commonwealth.

There will be around 2,000 people at the event, including Theresa May and ex-One Direction singer Liam Payne, who will perform.

On Monday, Markle will join Queen Elizabeth II, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton, to celebrate the event.

After almost 70 years of producing royal merchandise, British luxury gift manufacturer Halcyon Days is hoping the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and his American fiancee Meghan Markle will be a happy one for them as well as the bride and groom. According to Vanity Fair, an announcement is expected to be made during next month's Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Meghan now holds a full driver's licence to drive in Canada and the USA, but as United Kingdom roads are different - with cars driving on the left hand side of the road, as opposed to the right - her current licence only gives her 12 months of driving in the United Kingdom before she must get new documentation. "One of the first things we started talking about when we met was just the different things that we wanted to do in the world and how passionate we were about seeing change", the former Suits actress said at the time.

William and Kate, on the other hand, rarely, if ever, show affection in public. This is a certificate for providing goods and services to the royal households from the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles.

The insider told the Star on Sunday newspaper: "The royals understand why Meghan might prefer to have her mother, but it's not exactly traditional to have a woman walk a bride down the aisle".
