Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have joined guests at a close pal’s wedding.
They are at the ceremony in Surrey this afternoon, with the day falling on Meghan’s 37th birthday and the Duke of Sussex performing best man duties.
Harry’s friend Charlie van Straubenzee – who was an usher when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot earlier this year – is marrying partner Daisy Jenks.
Harry became friends with Charlie, 30, when the two attended Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire.
Best man Prince Harry, who has been close to van Straubenzee since childhood, wore sunglasses as he stepped into the building among a group of groomsmen.
Charlie was an usher at Harry’s recent wedding, along with older brother Thomas van Straubenzee.
Meghan, who is celebrating her 37th birthday today, waved to well-wishers and briefly chatted among other guests outside St Mary the Virgin church in Frensham, Surrey.
She wore a navy blue short-sleeved dress and matching fascinator.
Prince Harry and his wife appear to have arrived at different times, with the Duke of Sussex seen marching purposefully towards the church – perhaps with best man duties to perform – while Meghan relaxed and enjoyed a joke outside the venue with a number of other women.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also rumoured to be invited to the couple’s big day as William is good friends with the van Straubenzee brothers, with Thomas a godfather to his daughter Princess Charlotte.
Bride Daisy Jenks looked to be loving her wedding day as she arrived at the church and made time to wave to crowds and photographers in her white dress.
Meanwhile Meghan’s bitter half-sister Samantha Grant has taken another swipe at her younger sibling.
Outspoken Samantha, who now goes by Markle, claimed Meghan hadn’t sent her father a birthday card for his birthday on July 18.
It’s thought that Meghan and dad Thomas Markle haven’t spoken since her wedding in May after he took part in a televised interview where he revealed Prince Harry’s views on President Trump and Brexit after phone conversations they had prior to the royal couple’s wedding.
Samantha, who hasn’t spoken to Meghan for years, wrote on Twitter: "Happy Birthday Meg! It would be so lovely and appropriate of you to send DAD a BELATED birthday card for his July 18 th @Kensingtonroyal Cheers!"
She’d earlier cruelly called the Duchess Cruella de Vil in another Twitter rant in response to a report about Meghan and Harry "retreating from the spotlight".
"OK so Cruella de Vil is retreating LOL let me know how that works out for you. (sic)”
She also called her half-sister "Witchity Poo" in third tweet.
