She no doubt is feeling the butterflies as she heads towards St George's Chapel ahead of exchanging vows with Britain's Prince Harry, but bride-to-be Meghan Markle looked relaxed as she waved to cameras with her mother by her side.

Thousands have lined the streets of Windsor hoping to get a first glimpse of the bride on the way to her wedding - and perhaps more importantly for some - to catch sight of her wedding dress.

The bride has left Cliveden House in a Rolls Royce vintage Phantom, and appears to be in a gown with a boat neck style and a veil over her face, while her mother dons a chic cream beret.

Already present at the chapel include celebrities such as Victoria and David Beckham, George and Amal Clooney and Oprah, as well as extended family of the couple Carole and Pippa Middleton.

Meghan's car will take approximately 30 minutes to get to the chapel, where Britain's Prince Charles will be waiting to walk the bride up the aisle.
