Royal Wedding Bells Set To Ring On May 19 For Prince Harry And Fiancée Markle

Must read

Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle have officially announced their wedding date to the public and setting preparation in motion for a Royal wedding.

Prince Harry in a statement released on Sunday, February 11, 2018, about the upcoming royal wedding, thanked the public for the “good wishes” they have received since announcing their engagement in November 2017.

The statement schedules the wedding to begin at 7 a.m. EST on May 19, 2018, or noon local time, at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace.

It quoted Prince Harry saying that Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Dean of Windsor David Conner will officiate the wedding after which the couple will partake in a carriage ride to St. George’s Hall, where a reception will be held.

“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,” the palace said of the carriage ride.

Harry’s father, Prince Charles, will hold a private reception later that evening for the newlyweds, with close friends and family members in attendance at an undisclosed location.

Prince Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, are “hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement,” the palace’s statement read.

“They are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public.”

Windsor Castle, a royal residence often used by Queen Elizabeth, long has been the backdrop choice for royal occasions.

Queen Elizabeth II gave her grandson Prince Harry permission to use the castle grounds and will attend the wedding.

Prince Harry and Markle, a former U.S. actress, announced their engagement last November after much speculation surrounding their relationship.

The two were introduced by a mutual friend in 2016, and Harry said he fell in love with Markle “so incredibly quickly” and felt like the “stars were aligned.”
