On Saturday, May 19, a royal wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Hundreds of guests will gather in the chapel and hundreds of thousands more will watch from afar as Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle get married!
Over the last few months leading up to the wedding, several royal wedding details have emerged. The couple chose St. George’s Chapel as their wedding venue because they had reportedly spent regular time there together throughout the last year.
The wedding will be officiated by Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the most senior bishop in the Church of England. To prepare for the big day, Meghan Markle was even secretly baptized into the Church!
Now, the royal couple has revealed another fun detail about their upcoming wedding. They have announced who will be performing at their reception!
According to ABC News, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked the church's choir, as well as a separate gospel group to perform. The Kensington Palace said that the couple “have taken a great deal of interest and care” in selecting the musicians.
There will be performances from the St. George’s Chapel Choir, as well as one by Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir. The gospel group is from southeast England.
One of the members of the group is 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. He revealed that when Markle called to ask about playing in the ceremony, he was “bowled over.”
The wedding has been estimated to cost an enormous amount, though the royal family will be taking care of the bill. In 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding cost an estimated $34 million, with $32 million of that going just to security.
