Thousands of members of the public have been invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding celebrations.

The bride and groom have said they want their wedding day to allow members of the public to feel part of the festivities too and rejoice in the moment in a way that reflects their character and values.

A group of 2,640 people have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrivals of the bride and groom and their wedding guests, at the chapel and to watch the carriage procession as it departs from the castle on Saturday, May 19.

The couple has asked that the people chosen are from a broad range of backgrounds and ages, including young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities.

1,200 members of the public from every corner of the United Kingdom will be nominated to attend by nine regional Lord Lieutenant offices.

This group will be made up of:

  • 200 people from a range of charities and organisations which Prince Harry and Meghan have a close association with, including those which Prince Harry serves as patron.
  • 100 pupils from The Royal School, Great Park, Windsor and St George's School, Windsor Castle, both of which have a strong affiliation with the Windsor Castle community.
  • 610 Windsor Castle community members, including residents of Windsor Castle and members of the St George's Chapel community.
  • 530 Members of The Royal Households and Crown Estate.
