Nice day for a white wedding: Sun expected for Harry and Meghan’s big day

Have your say

Prince Harry and his bride-to-be can look forward to warm weather and sunshine in Windsor next weekend as Britain gears up to celebrate the royal wedding.

Meghan Markle can be confident it won’t rain on her parade, with highs of around 18 degrees on Saturday, according to the latest forecast from the Met Office.

Those making the journey to watch the happy event should slap on the sunscreen as it’s highly likely it will be sunny for most of the day.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “We have a good indication of what the weather is likely to be for the royal wedding - it is going to be mostly settled this week and that will continue on in to the weekend.

“It will be mostly dry with sunny spells with perhaps a northerly or north-easterly breeze. We can’t rule out a shower although to be honest that’s looking quite unlikely at the moment.

“Temperatures will be about normal for the time of year with highs of 17 or 18 degrees and during the sunny spells it will feel pleasantly warm.

“It’s looking like good weather for a wedding - you wouldn’t want it to be too hot.”

He continued: “There’s no signs of any severe weather. It doesn’t look like it will be a washout or really windy or anything like that.”

Most of the country is set to share in the fine weather, although there is a chance of some rain in north-western parts of the UK.

The spokesman said: “Going into Saturday night some parts may see some rain, particularly towards the north-west but for the wedding itself it should stay dry.”
