Harry and Meghan arrive for wedding rehearsal in Windsor joined by William and Kate - hours after the bride-to-be confirmed her dad will NOT be attending her big day

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have today appeared in public for the first time since she was forced to confirm that her father has pulled out two days before the royal wedding.
The American-born actress smiled as she arrived at Windsor Castle but her royal fiance looked far more serious as it emerged she is still said to be 'tearful and embarrassed' about the chaos Thomas Markle has caused. 
The couple's Range Rover was escorted by police as they sped past crowds of well-wishers and up the famous Long Walk to oversee the last preparations for their wedding day.
Harry's brother William and his wife Kate were also seen leaving Kensington Palace for Windsor ahead of wedding rehearsals this afternoon.
Mr Markle is in hospital following heart surgery days after he embarrassed his daughter with a series of 'staged' paparazzi photographs that threatened to overshadow her big day.
After days of silence Meghan was forced to make an extraordinary and moving statement confirming he will no longer walk her down the aisle at St George's Chapel on Saturday.

She said: 'Sadly my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health’. 
The former Suits star, 36, added: 'I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday'.
