Meghan Markle leaves word 'obey' out of wedding vows to Prince Harry – just like Diana did

It was also revealed that the groom would wear a wedding ring in a further break from tradition and that soul music would feature in the service.


The moving, soul classic Stand By Me by Ben E King will be performed by Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir, with the gospel singers also delivering Etta James' uplifting version of Amen/This Little Light of Mine – a favourite in African-American churches.

The presiding bishop of the American Episcopal Church Bishop, Michael Curry will give the address.

Celebrities including Meghan's former Suits co-stars Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht are expected to be among the guests, along with the couple's trusted inner circle of friends.

It comes as it is revealed Harry and Meghan will be styled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following the ceremony.

Kensington Palace today announced: "The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales.  His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

"Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex."

Last night the pair were said to be in floods of tears at the rehearsal, sobbing over the father of the bride’s decision not to come to the wedding.

Thomas Markle was due to give his daughter away today but bailed after reportedly suffering a heart attack.

Around 150,000 Royal fans from around the world descended on Windsor for Harry and Meghan’s big day.

The soon to be duchess spent last night a Clivenden House with her mum ahead of today’s celebrations.

Harry and his best man Prince William spent last night greeting the throngs of people who had joined in the festivities.

Police have been seen patrolling the area, with the heavy presence steadily increased throughout Windsor during the build-up.

Extra security measures include snipers, undercover police and military tech, such as a counter-drone system.
