Windsor: The public caught a first glimpse of bride Meghan Markle as she and her mother left Cliveden House hotel in a car to head to St George's Chapel for Meghan's wedding with Prince Harry.

All that could be seen was that Markle is wearing a white veil and diamond tiara for the glittering union of British royalty and Hollywood glamour that will be watched by millions around the world.

Prince Harry, now known as the Duke of Sussex, took up his place in the chapel with his brother and best man Prince William.

Prince Harry wore the frock-coat uniform of the Blues and Royals, Kensington Palace said.

The 33-year-old grandson of Queen Elizabeth waved to well-wishers as he arrived at St George's Chapel in Windsor in the dark blue uniform with Prince William, who was dressed the same.

"Her Majesty The Queen gave her permission for Prince Harry to get married in his uniform," according to a statement tweeted by Kensington Palace.

"Both uniforms were tailored at Dege & Skinner on Savile Row."

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that 36-year-old Meghan's wedding ring has been made by Cleave and Company from gold given to her by Queen Elizabeth.

Kensington Palace released a statement just hours before the couple exchange vows, saying: "Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen Cleave and Company to make their Wedding rings. Ms. Markle's ring has been fashioned from a piece of Welsh Gold, gifted by Her Majesty The Queen."

Prince Harry, 33, on the other hand, will wear a platinum band with a "textured finish" and both jewels will be cared for by his best man Prince William - his older brother - until they get into the chapel and are officially declared husband and wife.

The statement explained: "Prince Harry's ring will be a Platinum Band with a textured finish. Both rings were crafted in the Cleave workshop.

"The rings will be carried to St George's Chapel on the day of the Wedding by The Duke of Cambridge, in his capacity as Best Man."

Harry's decision to wear a wedding band goes against royal tradition as William, 35, decided not to have a ring when he married Duchess Catherine in 2011.

It has also been revealed that Harry and Meghan will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after their wedding, following Queen Elizabeth's decision to confer a Dukedom on her grandson.

Kensington Palace said in a statement: "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."
