Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce date for Windsor Castle wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released more plans about their big day. 

The wedding service will take place at St George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19 at noon.

The palace confirmed that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will marry the prince and Ms Markle.

The Rt Rev David Conner, dean of Windsor, will conduct the service at St George's Chapel.

At 1pm the couple will take a carriage procession along a route from St George’s Chapel, leaving Windsor Castle via Castle Hill, through the High Street and Windsor Town, before returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk.

A statement from the Palace said: “They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day”

Following the service there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and guests and later that evening the Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.

“Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement. They are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public,” Kensington Palace said.
