  • Video report by ITV News Correspondent Paul Davies

Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge have met the public outside Windsor Castle ahead of Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle on Saturday.

The Prince, who will be handed a new title tomorrow by The Queen, appeared at Castle Hill with his brother to meet some of those who are camping the night out to get a good space in the crowd for the wedding day.

After meeting with members of the public who have travelled to Windsor from all over the world, Harry and William will head off to Berkshire where they will stay for the night.

The two brothers will spend the evening at Cowarth Park, about 15 minutes from Windsor.

It’s where Harry has played polo many times before.

Meghan Markle and her mother Doria Ragland will stay at Cliveden House on the National Trust estate about 10 miles from the wedding venue.

She will depart from the hotel in a car with her mother for the drive to St George’s Chapel.

The Prince of Wales will accompany Meghan down the aisle at her wedding to Prince Harry tomorrow, Kensington Palace has said. The palace has said that Prince Charles "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms Markle to the Royal Family in this way."

This comes after news that Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, would not be attending the wedding due to medical advice following heart surgery.

With the US actress a big draw to both British and American fans, huge crowds are expected and the newlyweds’ carriage ride route may be closed to latecomers if the predicted 100,000 revellers become a safety issue.

ITV News correspondent Geraint Vincent spoke to some eager fans looking to get a glimpse at the royal couple.

Buckingham Palace has also confirmed that Prince Harry's grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, will be attend the royal wedding.

Prince Philip, 96, has been recovering after undergoing a hip operation.

The duke was spotted at the Royal Windsor Horse Show last week - the first public sighting of the Queen's consort since he left hospital.

The couple will be married at 12 noon on Saturday.
