Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reveal New Royal Wedding Details

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed more details of their forthcoming wedding on 19 May.

The couple will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, at midday – meaning a clash with the FA Cup final is unlikely as recent finals have kicked off at 17:30.

At 13:00 they will travel through Windsor, Berkshire, in a carriage. Kensington Palace said the couple are “hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received”.

The palace also 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.

The chapel holds about 800 people, making it a more intimate setting than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in Westminster Abbey.

Following the marriage service, a carriage procession will travel along a route including Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road, Long Walk and back to Windsor Castle.

“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,” Kensington Palace said.
