This was a pretty quick engagement for the Prince and Meghan. The couple announced their engagement in November and will wed this Saturday, May 19! Read on for everything we know about the much-anticipated upcoming royal wedding.
When is the Wedding?
Prince Harry — formally known as Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales — will marry Actress, Meghan Markle on May 19 in an hour-long ceremony starting at 7 a.m. EST, or noon local time.
While getting married on a Saturday is common here in the United States it is unusual for royalty across the pond, as most British royal weddings take place on a weekday.
Where is the wedding?
The wedding will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The wedding venue holds a central location in the history of the royal family. Windsor Castle, west of London, is one of Queen Elizabeth II’s main residences. The 15th-Century chapel is as historic but more intimate than Westminster Abbey, where Prince William married Kate Middleton in 2011.
Wedding guests are slated to meet the pair for a reception at St. George’s Hall.
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.
Who will their vendors be?
Claire Ptak of Violet Cakes will create the couple’s wedding cake, Kensington Palace has revealed.
Floral designer Philippa Craddock will join a team of florists from St. George’s Chapel and Buckingham Palace to create the displays for the royal wedding on May 19
We can’t wait to watch with the rest of the world, bright and early!
