Rise and shine from London:

• At noon (7 a.m. Eastern);

• Prince Harry, 33, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, will marry Meghan Markle, 36, an American actress, at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which is (you might have guessed) in Windsor, an ancient town west of London, near Heathrow Airport;

• The prewedding period has had more than the usual complement of unforeseen mishaps, but all appears to be well now. Ms. Markle will drive to the church with her mother, Doria Ragland, and walk down the aisle with her future father-in-law, Prince Charles;

• The day’s first bit of news arrived early: The queen announced shortly after 8 a.m. that Harry will be titled Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Ms. Markle will be known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex;

• In the scheme of things, this particular marriage is not really that important. Harry is only sixth in line to the throne. But Ms. Markle is a highly unusual royal bride: She’s American, three years older than Harry, has a high-profile career and is biracial.
