In pictures: Windsor ready for wedding

With two days to go until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry, the town of Windsor has held a rehearsal of the newlyweds' carriage procession.

International broadcasters and more than 100,000 people from around the world are in Berkshire before the wedding on Saturday.
