The first guests are expected to start arriving at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle from 6pm, with some 1200 members of the public watching the celebrations from outside the church.

The main guests will begin to arrive between 6:30 and 8pm, while members of the Royal family are expected to make their entrances from 8.20pm.

Prince Harry and his best man, Prince William, are tipped to arrive shortly before the ceremony gets underway at 8.45pm, while Meghan herself is expected to arrive just minutes the wedding begins at 9pm.

Following the service, Meghan and Harry will begin their celebratory procession through Windsor, which is expected to last 25 minutes.

The couple will then begin their post-wedding celebrations with a reception at Windsor Castle. An evening reception, with 200 of their 600 guests, will complete the day at Frogmore House.

Despite some initial concerns, soccer fans will be relieved to know that the royal wedding is not expected to clash with the FA Cup Final, with Chelsea and Manchester United on schedule to kick off at 2.15am AEST (5.15pm local time).
