LONDON (AP) — Royal officials say Meghan Markle's divorced parents will come to London before her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry and will meet with Queen Elizabeth II and other royals.

Harry's press secretary Jason Knauf said Friday that Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland will arrive during the week before the Saturday wedding so they will have time to meet Harry's family.

He says they will visit with the queen and her husband Prince Philip, with Harry's dad Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and with his brother Prince William and his sister-in-law Kate.

Ragland will travel with her daughter by car to Windsor Castle on May 19 and Thomas Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St. George's Chapel for the ceremony.

Knauf says Markle is "delighted" her parents will be by her side.
