Tong'a King George Tupou V, who is in London for the royal wedding, will travel with other visiting royal families in a procession of luxury coaches to Westminster Abbey for the ceremony.

After the wedding service, 600 of the guests, including the visiting royals, go to Buckingham Palace for the reception.
