Last Monday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their royal engagement. The couple will be getting married in May of 2018.
The last royal wedding took place almost seven years ago when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married. This wedding has been long anticipated, and details are already starting to come together. Below is all of the information that we currently know about the royal wedding.
The wedding will take place in May at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Kensington Palace spokesman, Jason Knauf, spoke out about why they chose Windsor Castle for the special event.
Knauf said, "Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year. They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple."
According to People, the chapel only holds up to 800 people, compared to Westminster Abbey where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married which has a capacity of 2,000. The chapel dates back over 500 years and has held several special weddings including that of Prince Charles and Camilla in 2005.
The wedding will be officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. He is the most senior bishop in the Church of England. Before the big day, Meghan will be baptized into the church.
Details about Meghan's dress have not been given yet, though she recently shared what she is looking for. The actress said that she loves designers Elie Saab and J. Mendel.
British designer Suzanne Neville said, "I think Meghan will choose an effortlessly chic gown with clean lines and minimal detail. I think the dress will be elegant and traditional, but with a modern twist."
Yesterday, it was revealed to US Weekly that Prince Harry had officially asked his brother, Prince William, to be his best man. It is not common to have a best man in royal weddings, though Prince William opted to have his brother as his during his 2011 wedding. Prince William and Kate's children, George and Charlotte, will also play a role in the royal wedding.
