Forecasters even claimed that the 'weather gods are smiling' on Prince Harry and Suits star Meghan Markle, who will tie the knot on Saturday.

It was previously reported that Meghan, who hails from America, was worried about unpredictable British weather spoiling her special, however it seems like the 36-year-old can put her worries to rest.

Alex Burkill, forecaster at theMet Office, said: "It looks like turning warmer from the weekend of the royal wedding onwards.

"Warm air is expected to come up from the near continent, with warmer-than-average conditions likely for the UK as a whole.

"Scotland has a greater chance of seeing warmth as we move later in the month.

"Saturday looks pleasant for the wedding, with dry and bright conditions most likely."

Mario Cuellar from Meteo Group also confirmed the forecast, saying: "Air will probably start coming to the UK from France, with 24C shown on forecast models by May 21 in the South as temperatures increase.

"The weather for the royal wedding looks good for people enjoying time outdoors."


We can't wait to raise a toast to the happy couple from a beer garden.
