High society: Pippa Middleton to marry at almost-royal event
Numerous royals and celebrities will attend the wedding with a lot of them having already flown in.
Proud parents Prince William and Princess Kate watched as their royal toddlers, who were dressed in adorable outfits by Pepa and Co., prepared to make their way down the aisle at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle, who is expected to attend the affair with boyfriend Prince Harry, enjoyed a day of pampering, as she was spotted leaving Good Vibes Yoga and Pilates studio in London, dressed in yoga trousers, a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap and chic sunglasses. The two got engaged last July and confirmed the big news through an official Kensington Palace spokesperson.
It was first reported that Meghan, who Harry has been dating since previous year, was not invited due to Pippa’s “no ring, no bring policy”. The royal youngster has only just turned two and Kate has described her as having something of a feisty side.
Princess Kate, Pippa’s sister, and her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were part of the bridal party, with Pippa’s big sister rearranging her train before she made her procession, and Pippa’s niece and nephew serving as bridesmaid and page boy, respectively.
Well, it stars Pippa Middleton’s wedding day and it’s finally, finally happening.

The wedding is taking place in the Berkshire countryside west of London, near the Middleton family home.
