Prince Harry is expected to be one of the guests at the high-society wedding of his ski partner today.

But Prince Harry is said to be on the guest list with Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips, and son Peter.

Captain Harry Legge-Bourke has served as aide-de-camp to Sir Charles Guthrie, the Chief of Defence Staff, and has been a skiing parter of both of the Princes in Klosters.

Captain tipped

Sixteen-year-old Harry is known to remain close to his former nanny Tiggy, who married security consultant Charles Pettifer on the family estate last year.

Captain Legge-Bourke has also been tipped as a future equerry to Prince William.

Tiggy Legge-Bourke joined the Prince of Wales's staff in 1993 and become a close companion of William and Harry through the separation of their parents.

Gwent Police are mounting a security operation around the church.
