The service will begin at midday at St. George’s Chapel, with Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, officiating.

The couple will then go on a carriage procession through Windsor Town and the High Street, before attending a reception at St George’s Hall.

Later in the evening,there will be a smaller private gathering for the couple’s close friends and family.
