In pictures: Windsor ready for wedding

Crowds lined the streets as Windsor was taken over by a rehearsal of the carriage procession.

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.

Crowds lined the streets as the military helped staged a rehearsal of the couple's carriage procession.
