PRINCE Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle has jetted into London for Pippa Middleton’s wedding as more details of the lavish day emerge.
The Suits actress, who began dating the third-in-line heir to the throne last year, is an exception to Ms Middleton’s “no ring, no bring” guest list rule.
She arrived in London yesterday and was quickly whisked to Kensington Palace.
Ms Markle will join around 350 other guests at what UK media are declaring the society event of the year. And the happy couple have spared no expense.
According to The Mirror, Ms Middleton will arrive at a 12th Century village church in Englefield, Berks in a horse-drawn carriage following a 10-minute journey from the family’s sprawling estate in nearby Bucklebury.

Details of the bride’s dress have been kept very quiet but there’s speculation it was crafted by British designer Giles Deacon.
Middleton’s sister Duchess Katherine and her husband Prince William will attend and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte will act as page boy and flower girl.
Among other guests are stacks of nobles, the uber rich and fixtures of Britain’s high society.
Ms Markle isn’t the only exception to Pippa’s rule that partners may only attend if the couple is married — her brother James will bring his on-again, off-again girlfriend Donna Air.
However the bride has banned her groom James Matthews’ brother Spencer from bringing his reality star girlfriend Vogue Williams.
After the ceremony, a World War II-era spitfire will perform a flyover to entertain guests, along with several other aircraft.
From there, the party will move to the Middleton estate where a massive glass marquee, shipped in from Belgium, will host festivities.
Ms Middleton instructed guests to bring a change of clothes for the evening, hinting that she expects people to let their hair down, Express UK reported.
And as Express UK reports, every detail has been considered — including luxury portable loos decked out with marble and oak fittings.
Middleton’s husband-to-be is the chief executive of Eden Rock Capital Management Group, a hedge fund he co-founded in 2001.
They dated briefly in 2012 but parted ways, before rekindling their romance in 2015.
In the lead up to her big day, Middleton loaded a small group of girlfriends onto a private jet and travelled to the French ski resort Meribel for a celebratory weekend away.
