Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Set Wedding Date



Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry on May 19 next year at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, Kensington Palace has said.

A May wedding would allow the Duchess of Cambridge to recover from the birth of her third child, who is due to arrive in April.

The Royal family will pay for the wedding, including the church service, the music, the flowers and the reception, which Prince Harry and Ms Markle have said will reflect who they are as a couple.

The security costs for the high-profile event will fall to the taxpayer.

Prince Harry and his fiancee previously said they wanted the public to feel a part of the celebrations.

Kensington Palace said the couple chose to tie the knot on a Saturday because “they felt it would give the public the greatest opportunity to watch, come out, support and get involved”.

It is not yet known if the ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Markle, a Protestant, is to be baptised and confirmed before the wedding day.

The couple confirmed their engagement on November 27 after Prince Harry proposed to the Suits actress earlier in the month.

In their first interview, Ms Markle revealed she gave an immediate “yes” to Prince Harry after he got down on one knee to propose as they tried to roast a chicken for dinner at Kensington Palace.

She said: “(It was) just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.

“As a matter of fact I could barely let you finish proposing, I said: ‘Can I say yes now’?”

Prince Harry told of how “the stars were aligned” when he fell for his future wife, whom he met on a blind date.
