Storm Callum is expected to hit the UK on the morning of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for Friday and Saturday and said to expect heavy and persistent rain which has the potential to cause flooding, “difficult” driving conditions and potential road closures.

Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter is set to tie the knot with her long-term boyfriend in front of over 800 guests at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, at 11am.

The storm could bring gusts of up to 80mph, but the Met Office said on Wednesday the worst of the weather would be in western Scotland, Wales and the Lake District.
