The news comes as reports that bride-to-be Meghan Markle's father will now not be able to attend the wedding as he is due to have heart surgery, after a tumultuous week in the media.

Meghan's mother Doria has been seen arriving in London, as has her friend and 'unofficial wedding planner', 37-year-old Jessica Mulroney was also pictured arriving in London this morning.
