The invitations have been posted and the countdown to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is well underway.
Harry and Meghan will say “I do” in May at St George’s Chapel, which is nestled within the grounds of Windsor Castle, in just a few weeks. Here’s the lowdown…
Shortly after their engagement was revealed, it was confirmed the wedding between Harry and Meghan would take place in May 2018.
On December 15 last year, Kensington Palace confirmed the ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 19.
In a statement, Clarence House said: “Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel. The Royal Family will pay for the wedding.”
It has been announced that floral designer Philippa Craddock will provide flowers that will include white garden roses, foxgloves and peonies.
It has also emerged that the royal couple will have a lemon elderflower cake made by pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based Violet Bakery.
The couple will tie the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Charles and Camilla had their televised blessing there in 2005 and it offers the couple a more low key venue than Westminster Abbey, where Kate Middleton and Prince William got married.
St George’s Chapel can accommodate 800 guests, whereas the Abbey seats 2,000.
Harry and Meghan have said they are looking at ways to make their wedding an event that members of the public can feel a part of.
Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas plans to walk her down the aisle when she marries Prince Harry, according to her half-sister Samantha Markle .
During a television interview, when asked by broadcaster Matthew Wright if her father would be attending the wedding, Samantha replied: “Yes he is, God forbid unless a plane crashes through his roof, he’ll be there one way or the other.”
