A source said: "Paul is doing some media work for a US broadcaster, so he arrived at the media tent, a runner came out and he went in. He wasn't stopped."

Diana's former butler has been accused of cashing in on the Royal Wedding following a "skin crawling" TV interview.

He claimed the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry would have greeted Meghan Markle into the family with open arms.

In an interview with Lorraine, Mr Burrell said Diana would be "there in spirit" on the big day, with it hoped that the loved-up couple would carry on her legacy.

How the Royal Wedding has unfolded so far…

  • Royal fans are descending on Windsor to catch a glimpse of the loved-up couple as they tie the knot today
  • Meghan Markle spent her last night as an unmarried woman with her mum Doria Ragland at Cliveden Hall
  • Prince Harry stayed at Coworth Park with his big brother and best man, Prince William
  • The brothers had last night walked out around Windsor to greet fans ahead of the big day
  • The bride will walk down the aisle partly by herself before being joined by Prince Charles, who will give her away
  • Meghan's dad Thomas Markle will not be at the big day, still recovering from a heart operation
  • Prince Harry and Meghan will be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

And he claimed that Diana would have been hands-on in helping to calm the situation with Meghan Markle's father Thomas, who has pulled out of walking his daughter down the aisle due to an emergency heart operation.

But he was slammed online after claiming he met Harry when Diana held his hand on her belly to feel him kick.

Among the early arrivals were Princess Diana's brother Earl Spencer, Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy and Kate's pregnant sister Pippa Middleton.
