The ceremony is expected to attract attention from people all around the world. Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who lives in California, will also be at the ceremony. A source told the publication: "She has formed a close bond with him".

Fashion designer Misha Nonoo, 31, who introduced the Harry and Meghan, is also believed to be accompanying the Suits star on her hen party.

The royal couple will marry at midday at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, hours before the FA Cup Final kick-off.

The former actress chose to be baptized before the royal wedding out of respect to Queen Elizabeth II, who is the head of the Church of England, according to The Sunday Times.

Couple set to Wednesday at Windsor Castle; wedding date presents potential scheduling conflict for Prince William.

Markle previously married film producer Trevor Engelson, who is Jewish, in 2011.

Facebook Ends 'Explore Feed' Test that Showed Two Separate News Feeds

Markle's father, a Hollywood lighting director, belonged to the Episcopalian denomination ¿ the main U.S. offshoot of the Anglican church ¿ and her mother belonged to another Protestant sect.

At the end of a four-week public consultation, United Kingdom home secretary Amber Rudd confirmed this week that licensing hours across England and Wales would be relaxed to mark the royal wedding.

Pubs in South Yorkshire could open till 1am on royal wedding night The move, which was subject to a four-week consultation, means pubs, bars and other licensed premises can keep serving until 1am on the morning of the nuptials, and again after the couple has tied the knot.

Ms Rudd has made the order for two nights of extended opening times on the weekend of the wedding in May so people can celebrate the occasion.

Legislation introduced in 2005 allows the government to relax opening hours for an "occasion of exceptional global, national, or local significance".
