Kate Middleton had to go ahead with a wedding rehearsal without her fiance Prince William on Friday because the British royal was tied to his duties with the Royal Air Force.
The couple is due to exchange vows at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29 and they scheduled a rehearsal at the venue two weeks before the big day to make sure the ceremony runs smoothly.
But Middleton was forced to attend the event without her husband-to-be because of his commitments as a search and rescue pilot.
She took part in the rehearsal with her future brother-in-law Prince Harry and her maid of honour, sister Pippa Middleton, as well as all of her bridesmaids and pageboys.
A Clarence House spokesman says, "We can confirm that Catherine Middleton and Prince Harry took part in a rehearsal at Westminster Abbey this morning."
