Will Meghan Markle be walking down the aisle or up the nave? | Brief letters

How nice of Mark Carne to “strongly advise passengers to plan ahead this May” (Bank holiday heatwave may break record for early May, 5 May).

• On Friday I landed at Bristol airport from Belfast. We were all required to show ID at the “UK Border”. The cabinet will be relieved to know that there were a few moans but no riots (Fallback plan for trade border between Ulster and rest of UK, 5 May).
