Earlier today The Queen was pictured travelling to Windsor ahead of the royal wedding this weekend.

Queen Elizabeth was a backseat passenger in a black Range Rover as she was driven to Windsor, looking out the window as she shielded her eyes with sunglasses and kept a straight face.

It has also been confirmed that Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, will not be attending the wedding and walking her down the aisle.

Kensington Palace shared a statement on the American actress' behalf which confirmed his absence for health reasons.

Tinged with sadness, the statement 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.

"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."
