Meghan Markle has reportedly picked out her wedding dress, and had her very first fitting! According to Good Morning America, the former Suits actress flew her close friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney, from Canada to London to help her to decide on which gown to wear for on the big day. Following the fitting, Jessica reportedly stayed at Kensington Palace with the couple for four nights, and was thought to help Meghan decide on more outfits for the 36-year-old's upcoming engagements.

Prince Harry and Meghan will tie the knot on 19 May and famous faces including Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra and Ed Sheeran are among those expected to attend, with the latter also thought to be performing at the royal reception. Speaking about the royal couple's wedding, the Archbishop of Canterbury told Radio 4: "I am very, very sure after conversations that this is no tick-box exercise, 'We ought to get married in a church'. There is a profound sense of commitment, of seriousness, both about faith and their lives together, which is quite inspirational…It's important because people look at it and see a model of how two people commit their lives to one another before God in the presence of millions of people. It's always a beautiful moment - every wedding is profoundly beautiful. Even when you drop the rings it's still a very moving wedding."
