And while her father has confirmed he will not attend it looks as though her nephews Tyler and Thomas Dooley along with their mother, Meghan's sister-in-law, Tracy Dooley could be making an appearance.

Despite previously claiming they hadn't received an invite to the royal wedding the trio were seen making their way to the arrivals gate at the London airport on Monday.

Armed with no less than 13 suitcases the family cut a casual figure as they made their way out of the international airport having flown in from their home in Oregan.

A cheerful Tracy could even be seen flashing a peace sign to photographers as she made her way from security.  

It remains unknown whether the Dooleys will attend the wedding, however, the family are expected to make an appearance on Good Morning Britain ahead of the wedding according to reports.

They had of course previously appeared on the ITV programme where they claimed to have been snubbed from the wedding list.

In March Tracy and Tyler appeared via live video link from Oregon, and admitted that while they were still hopeful that invitations might be en route, it was looking extremely unlikely.

Tyler said on the show: ‘We’ve not got anything yet. At this point, who knows? This all goes back to Meghan, it’s her day and her happiness.’ 

Tracy - who was married to Meghan's half brother Thomas Markle Jr, is mother to Tyler and his brother Thomas, who Meghan used to babysit for as a child - added: ‘I don’t think we are getting invitations, but that is fine, we are so proud of her.’

She said that while she herself hadn't seen the royal bride-to-be in some 20 years, the family still has a close relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, who she said was 'sure' to give Meghan away when she marries Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on May 19. 

It was announced that Tracey and Tyler will be flying over to the UK to be a part of Good Morning Britain's coverage of the Royal wedding.

The family's arrival in London comes just as Meghan's father, Thomas Markle Snr., confirmed that he would not be attending his daughter's wedding in the wake of the scandal surrounding his staged paparazzi photos.

The 73-year-old had been set to walk his daughter down the aisle on Saturday, but told TMZ on Monday that he will no longer be travelling to London, after The Mail on Sunday revealed that he had worked with photographers to stage images for money.

Thomas said that he did not want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter on her big day.

He also revealed that he suffered a heart attack just six days ago.

The Dooleys aren't the first Americans to hit UK soil ahead of the wedding with some of Meghan's friends spotted in London.

Jacinda Barrett, who had a recurring role on Suits from 2012 until 2013, and also is married to Meghan's former co-star Gabriel Macht, has touched down in London.

The 45-year-old actress confirmed her arrival with a heart-warming snap, which she posted to Instagram on Sunday.

In the picture the actress can be seen receiving a kiss from her four-year-old son Luca outside Buckingham Palace.

Captioning the picture she wrote: 'Kissing in front of the Queen.' She then added the hashtag #buckinghampalace, before dedicating the sweet snap to her own mother in light of Mother's Day (US).

Jacinda is believed to be travelling with husband Gabriel Macht, who starred opposite Meghan in Suits for all seven seasons that she appeared in the show.

A surprising absentee is Prince Harry's cousin, Lady Ameila Windsor who is also reported to have been left off the guest list.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old and her older sister Marina, 25 will not be attending the ceremony at Windsor Castle.

A friend told the newspaper: 'They were a little surprised not to be invited as they were looking forward to going.

'Amelia is creating quite a name for herself with her modelling and Instagram posts.

'Perhaps Harry just wanted to keep the family invited to a small number or maybe he didn't want anyone upstaging the bride.'
